Chris Martha is using the same disreputable tactics that were used against Prop. 187 in CA: don't enforce our immig. laws or illegal aliens will engage in crimes. If Chris Martha is really concerned about that he could suggest some form of repatriation program.
And, there are obvious reasons why we don't allow massive *legal* immigration by low-wage workers: because of the further impact it would have on low-wage Americans. Corrupt politicians have a workaround: allow illegal immigration.
As for "only legal citizens have the right to vote", that's correct. However, Chris Martha ignores a) some illegal aliens have been caught registering or voting, b) illegal aliens count towards Cong. apportionment, and c) illegal aliens form a power base for the Dems and the far-left, whether they vote or not.
