"We spend a ton of money on housing, conservation, law enforcement, hospital care -- all the different areas you would take care of an immigrant, we would spend on illegal aliens," he said. "If you subtract the illegals from that equation, then we don't have a budget deficit."It never ceases to astonish me, the stupidity of those who can't tell the difference between a legal immigrant and a criminal illegal alien. Ditto their stupidity when they say that upholding the law is somehow "racist", when, in fact, it applies to criminal illegal aliens of ALL races and national origins.
Palumbo said racism has nothing to do with it. "There's a big difference between someone who comes over here as an immigrant and someone who comes over here and just completely ignores the laws of the country," said Palumbo, who acknowledged that it might surprise people that he's a Democrat. "It isn't a Republican versus Democratic issue."
