Well, if those facts are indeed correct and I have no reason to doubt them as they seem to be similar to others I have seen, then illegal aliens are a very real burden on our society. Those statistics are sobering to say the least, and this is what we all have to look forward to in 20 years or less if we continue to do the status quo.

Great post, but disturbing.

It's too bad that our President has covered his eyes to the statistics and has covered his ears to the clamor of conservatives to solve the problem, starting with enforcement.

These statistics only drive the message home, but President Bush isn't listening.
