Illegal immigrants are a burden to everyone

In response to Jose from Victoria: Whoopee! Your ancestors served in the U.S. military. Two of my uncles served in World War I, five of my brothers served in World War II and I served in the Korean War. So, since our family is Irish, let's open the borders to Ireland. If you are a U.S. Citizen, you should not mind showing I.D., just like you do when you cash a check, apply for employment or credit.
Illegal immigrants on welfare, Medicaid and food stamps don't pay income taxes or buy auto insurance. Forcing everyone else to pay uninsured motorist insurance is just as much of a burden to legal Hispanics as they are to everyone else. What is it that you don't understand about illegal, Jose?
