Front page article today about the raids on meat processing plants in MN for illegals. It's sad but breaking the law is breaking the law, especially if they are stealing identities from Americans. I've heard all the arguments, pro and con, but the thing is, they are changing our quality of life, they are costing us money in education and healthcare and they are not melting into our pot. They are maintaining a 'little Mexico' right here in the US and that is frustrating. I feel sad for the families who are just trying to make a better life for themselves, but this situation has gotten out of control. Why can't the governments in Central America do more to raise the standard of living for their citizens? Perhaps we need a guest worker program?
