The doors to the land of America have been left wide open, and with the smooth southern breeze flowing inside comes the risk for an assortment of disease, political and economic failure, and violence. These are brought in by illegal immigrants from Mexico who walk into the country by the millions without second thought. Americans are forced to pay high taxes for the price of citizenship, many swimming in poverty and struggling to get by while the infestation of Mexican illegal immigrants snatch away jobs and feed off of government services that were paid by well-meaning citizens.

Therefore I am not biased against those who have, and if it appears so in the plan I have proposed, I can assure you it is entirely for the good of America.
