    My problem is I am tired of the “illegals” committing the crimes. A very high percentage of the crimes are being committed by illegals. When are we going to take care of THE BORDER ISSUE!! COME ON CONGRESSMEN AND WOMEN. POLITIANS, STOP THINKING ABOUT VOTES AND DESTROYING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND TAKE CARE OF AMERICA!!

    IT AFFECTS OUR ECONOMY ALSO. SOME AREAS OF CALIFORNIA ARE LIKE “DEVELPING COUNTRIES” NOT THE UNITED STATES.
