There are many different estimates of how much illegals are costing taxpayers. The latest estimate I have found puts the cost at 158 billion dollars a year. That money would go a long ways to upgrade the crumbling infrastructure. People who attempt to deal with this problem are labeled racists and other stupid names. Those bleeding heart people have not considered how much this failed way of dealing with illegals hurts those who are trying to enter legally. The anchor baby rule should also be repealed. I'm quite sure that the founding fathers never meant it to work this way.
And the anchor baby idea arose out of the 14th Amendment -- granting citizenship to freed slaves. Its intention was never beyond that action, and there are numerous historical documents on file from debates in Congress that outline this very idea.
