Illegal Immigration Over the past several years our nation has been in a spiral downward. I feel one of the main causes of this is illegal immigration. You might say no, it is our economy that has brought us down, and this is true. However, our economy hasn’t just fallen on its own, welfare rates are higher than ever and more and more people are starting to take advantage of the government. One of the highest welfare rates in the country is within the Hispanic community, and most are here illegally. Not only are these illegal aliens killing our economy, they are killing our own people.

You might say though that everyone deserves a fair a chance and ten years of education is not a waste for anyone.
