    They're too busy counting their casino royalties to notice.

    Frankly I really doubt it.

    snippets:

    Combined with public safety costs and health care costs, the official claimed the "total cost for illegal immigrants to county (Los Angeles County ) taxpayers" was more than $1.6 billion in 2010. "Not including the hundreds of millions of dollars for education," he said in a statement.
    ...The organization reported that the cost of illegal immigration (US) stands at about $113 billion a year.
    Nice edit 70's-guy... Michael Moore-ish. The way misrepresented who came up with those numbers at the end.

    Ariz. Indian Nation Overrun With Illegal Immigrants
    Tuesday, April 13, 2004

    E-Mail Respond Print Share:

    SELLS, Ariz. — Each day, at least 1,500 illegal Mexican immigrants cross a makeshift border into southern Arizona’s Tohono O’odham Indian Nation (search).

    Tribal Police Chief Richard Saunders is responsible for the area the size of Connecticut, and in March alone his officers and federal Border Patrol (search) agents captured more than 16,000 illegal immigrants. But at least that many got through without being detected.

    Illegal immigration isn’t the only issue for Saunders’ small force, which also has to police the drug trade.

    So far this year, nearly 20,000 pounds of marijuana and an unspecified amount of narcotics have been seized. Agents believe that’s just a small fraction of what’s getting across the border.

    The tribe is currently spending half its federal money on border security, instead of on housing, roads and schools.

    and all those states that thought they were dumb for going in debt and wasting their money have to pay for these bills when the feds bail them out. who's the political geniuses now?
    Democracy is two wolves and sheep voting on what's for dinner. Liberty is a well armed sheep willing to contest the vote.

    I don't have to deal with you at all. Deal with that.

    How do you figure? My father's family immigrated to the U.S. a century ago, all completely legally, from Quebec...

    No where in the US Constitution is a person granted citizenship solely on the act of being born on US soil. A person's parentage is a major factor on citizenship in this country. If even one parent is a citizen of another country then the baby is born a citizen of that country and not the US. That is why the 14th Amendment contains the stipulation "...and subject to the jurisdiction..." in the first paragraph. The writers agreed that was to mean 'subject to the complete jurisdiction of the US'. Or, more importantly, not subject to the jurisdiction of any other country.
    Oh, not this insanity again... If you are residing on U.S. soil, save for one with diplomatic immunity, you ARE subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S.
