    What needs to be done is these people should either be given work visa's so they can contribute to paying taxes and help lead them to citizenship or the current unemployed market should be tapped to replace the illegal workers.
    That's the last thing that needs to happen. You are aware that the unemployment rate in this country is bumping 10%? What is adding an addition 15 million+ workers to the workforce going to do to remedy that?

    Are you suggesting that halting the death penalty will save the state money?

    It might, if you calculate in all the costs spent when criminals sentenced to such constantly appeal it.

    So, instead, we have to support them for the rest of their lives?

    I think a better solution would be to actually execute those prisoners on death row and Cali could save bllions right away.

    What part of "illegal" escapes your comprehension?

    If agribusiness wants berry pickers, it can hire US citizens or legal immigrants, not invaders.

    1) Is the state funding your park? No? Then it's not an issue.

    2) Why shouldn't you pay a fee to use the park, instead of taxing people who aren't using it to keep it up?

    Limit the number of appeals, and pull the trigger when the appeals run out, saving tons of money, but nothing more than a drop in the bucket of California's spending problem.

    Very likely true.

    It will be interesting to see how they fix this.

    You have a primitive understanding of economics. More jobs will open up with all those people entering the economy.

    How is the addition of more workers to the job market going to create more jobs? If that were the case, then there would be no such thing as unemployment.
