Illegal immigration is a bigger problem then the liberal media is willing to admit. The Bureau of Justice Statistics website showed that half of all federal arrests involved an illegal immigrant. The cost to arrest so many illegal immigrants and jail them is a burden on the taxpayers and those dollars could be used for other programs.
Those on the left complain about having sympathy, well what about those who are breaking the law? Are we to have sympathy for them too, while spending billions of taxpayer money, which could be spent on education, scientific research, infrastructure and other programs.
We have to do something once and for all to tackle illegal immigration. Not only are we a nation of laws, but taxpayer dollars should be spent on meaningful things that benefit the people.
