> credible research on the issue, which suggests that any negative effect caused by illegal immigrants is relatively modest.

Sure, a few dead people here and there, some people made dependent on drugs, some unemployment - that's just modest effect.

> illegal immigrants pay a variety of taxes

Yeah, right, except federal income taxes. I know plenty of illegal immigrants and none of them pays those taxes.

I am myself a legal immigrant, appalled at having to wait years in line to come to this country, while others are just gaming the system. Why not allow illegal immigrants to jump the line at DMV and supermarket checkouts? Or why not allow Mexico to simply take over US and hang Mexican flag on The White House? What's the difference between them taking over our country in war vs taking over our country peacefully? Did I become a citizen of a non-sovereign country that doesn't care about its values, culture, and people? And a country that unfairly treats people who want to immigrate here legally, while instantly allowing in people who don't care about any rules? Illegal aliens only laugh: "hey stupid, why you waiting in line like an idiot when I just sneaked through the border".
They should be deported outta here instantly, without any courts.

> Just for clarification - he pays $1000 a month which includes all access to the amenities there?? There's no additional HOA that he pays?? Does that include utilities??

I live there too and paying $1300 for a studio. There were only several units for $1k, with worse views but still great place. Electricity was about $50/month before summer.
HOA, water and everything else is included in the rent.

Legal immigrants don't support illegal immigrants!

- Legal immigrants don't want to compete for jobs with illegal immigrants.

- Legal immigrants followed rules and waited in line to obtain their green cards. They find it uncivil for illegal immigrants to jump the line.
Should illegal immigrants also have a right to skip lines at DMV, banks and stores while everyone else is waiting?

- Legal immigrants are not all Mexicans and don't appreciate Mexicans discriminating against other nations who cannot cross borders so easily. All nations should be treated equally regardless how far they are from the US border. That's what the legal immigration process is for.

- Legal immigrants demand from "Reform Immigration for America" to stop brainwashing legal immigrants or pretending that most legal immigrants support illegal immigrants. "Reform Immigration for America" is a sham.

I would only like to know if federal government's rights to regulate commerce also allow it to:

a) take someone's property or money

b) force someone into participating in commerce

c) force any business like bakery or barbershop to pay for someone's healthcare bills (since insurance companies are forced to pay for someone who's already sick instead of providing insurance)
