    Right now, illegal imigrants make up 5% of the U.S. work force. Already, the low wages they work for has demonstrated a causal relation to reduced wages for lower pay scale American (i.e. U.S. citizen) workers. I agree that the U.S. Senate will pass a do-nothing law and the flood of illegals will continue. Unfortunately, these poorly-educated people pay little in taxes due to the earned-income tax credit yet are high utilizers of government services (to the point that they are a net expense to the U.S). Their continued growth will ultimately serve to bring down U.S. wages and reduce government benefits to U.S. citizens. The fact that the U.S. Senate will not enact legislation to build a wall (i.e. a "fence" like you wisely have) between the U.S.-Mexican border, and create a criminal-proof U.S. Worker I.D. Card, is proof that the U.S. Senate is comprised of prostitutes to big-business lobbyists. This will ultimately be the ruin of the U.S.and they must know it. It's sad and dangerous.
