Let's take a good, honest look at the real picture. A recent survey estimated there were between 4 and 9 million legal and illegal Mexican immigrants in this country.
More specific figures show these workers send literally billions (that's billions with a "b") of dollars earned in this country back to their families and towns in Mexico. That is a huge drain on our economy.
I wonder how many people who were backed up on Interstate 8 the night the new
Indian casino opened in Campo know that the millions of dollars that pour into those casinos go into the coffers of the sovereign nation of (so-called) Native Americans — that is the sovereign Indian nation not to be confused with the United States of America sovereign nation.
As their own sovereign nation they are not subject to any of the taxation, laws or rules of our country. All that money is THEIR money. It does not go to build new highways or schools or bridges or buildings.
