I and my family came to the USA, more then 25 years ago. We came here because we knew we can find better life here than in our country in South America. This issue of Immigration is a very complex issue and there are many sides on this debate. I will start with letting you know that the recent ICE Crackdowns do not help anybody. When families are divided and the children have to stay here in the USA, while their parents are deported to their country of origin, many people think it's the right thing to do. But I disagreed I believe it probably cost more, because the children who stay here, have to survive some how and if they are US citizen they end up in a state foster care system in many states where there is already a lack of funds to take care of these children. So the question remains is the tax payer better now or the country better now, since we deported their parents who were taking care of their children and who's only crime was to be indocumented workers in this country,? but were maintaining a home, and taken care of their children, a the same time being customers for a too long list to name here and part of our economy? I don't think so. Many employers who probably don't dare to comment on the record, will tell you many Hispanics working in this country legal or ilegal are some of their best workers. We have to debate this issue in congress and come to a solution, because ICE throu their crackdowns are destroying lives of real people, putting more burden in our state budgets and hurting the economy. And the notion that Ilegal immigrants are burden our Welfare system, Health care system, it's a lie. Look a the numbers from a reliable source and you will notice that many ilegal immigrants do not qualify for welfare from the get go. And there are countless data reports that shows Hispanics are the lowest numbers in Welfare(we like to work) compare to other people. and many do not visit hospital or doctor because of other cultural issues and because of fear. As a citizen of this country and Imigrant which I believe about 90 percent of the population is, if your trace your roots back you will discover the only real american born in this land and truly americans are the Native Americans, everybody else came via Ships crossing the atlantic ocean, or walking, by car or airplane. I believe we have to have a sensable debate in congress and come to a solution to this challenge.
