Democrats, step up and help

An estimated 13 million illegal immigrants are already in the United States and approximately 9,000 per month are arriving, mostly children who need to be fed, housed and given medical treatment.

The mass exodus of immigrants from their country to the U.S. was mainly brought on by President Obama's executive order stating illegals under the age of 16 would not be deported.

F.A.I.R. estimates that the illegal immigrants cost U.S. taxpayers $100 billion per year. U.S. residents are increasingly resentful due to the overwhelming burden put upon them by our local, state and federal tax system.

People all across the nation are being taxed out of their homes as our governments spend trillions on wars, prop up foreign nations and give our money to other countries while hugely ignoring American needs.

The Obama administration has compounded this problem and in January was hiring bus companies to transport an estimated 400,000 illegals all across our nation.

Hopefully many Obama supporters could help their president's cause by taking in an illegal and housing him for free. They could do their part to combat the astronomical price tag for the illegal population.

So what say the loyal, straight- party-ticket Democrats? How about helping an undocumented potential Democrat?
