"Hows it goin"
Here is an interesting read. I like for anyone to chime in. My own personal thoughts are that the illegals are costing the American Taxpayer a ton of money in social services, plus the fact that a large portion of their income is sent back to Mexico.
WHAT IF THEY WENT HOME?

Recently, Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News, wrote a column titled, Mexican Visitor's Lament.
She interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while she was visiting Denver . Hernandez said, "They (illegal aliens) pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes....what happens to your country's economy if 20 million people go away?"
That's a good question --- it deserves an answer. Over 80% of Americans want secured borders and illegal migration stopped.But what would happen if all 20 million vacated America?
In California, if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico, it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupted hospitals and overrun prisons.
It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested. Everyone
could understand one another as English became the dominant language again.
In Colorado, 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and
grandkids would move back "home," mostly to Mexico .
That would save Coloradans an estimated $2 billion annually in taxes
that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration
costs. It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone.
Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens. Denver Officer Don Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered death, accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals.
Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67 percent drop out/flunk out rate via thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages. At least 200,000 vehicles would vanish from our gridlocked cities in Colorado .
In Florida, 1.5 million illegals would return the Sunshine State back to America, the rule of law and English.
In Chicago, Illinois, 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free experience.
If 20 million illegal aliens returned "home," the US economy would
return to the rule of law. Employers would have to hire legal American citizens at a living wage.
Everyone would pay their fair share of taxes because they wouldn't be working off the books. That would result in an additional $400 billion in IRS income taxes collected annually, and an equal amount for local state and city coffers.
No more push '1' for Spanish or '2' for English.
No more confusion in American schools that now must content with over 100 languages that degrade the educational system for American kids. Our overcrowded schools would lose more than two million illegal alien kids at a cost of billions in ESL and free breakfasts and lunches.
We would lose 500,000 illegal criminal alien inmates at a cost of more than $1.6 billion annually. That includes 15,000 MS-13 gang members who distribute $130 billion in drugs annually would vacate our country. In cities like L.A. , 20,000 members of the " 18th Street Gang" would vanish from our nation.
No more Mexican forgery gangs for ID theft from Americans. No more foreign rapists and child molesters. Losing more than 20 million people would clear up our crowded highways and gridlock. Cleaner air and less drinking and driving American deaths by illegal aliens.
Over $80 billion annually wouldn't return to their home countries by cash transfers. Illegal immigrants earned half that money untaxed, which further drains America 's economy.
At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, which cost us $109 billion per year per cycle.
At least 86 hospitals in California , Georgia and Florida would still be operating instead of being bankrupted out of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTOLA Act. Americans wouldn't suffer thousands of TB and hepatitis cases rampant in our country --- brought in by illegals unscreened at our borders.
Our cities would see 10 million less people driving, polluting and grid locking our cities. It would also put the "secular progressives" on the horns of a dilemma; illegal aliens and their families cause 11 percent of our greenhouse gases.
Over one million of Mexico 's poorest citizens now live inside and along our border from Brownsville , Texas to San Diego , California in what the New York Times called, "colonias" or new neighborhoods.
The trouble is, those living areas resemble Bombay and Calcutta where grinding poverty, filth, diseases, drugs, crimes, no sanitation and worse. They live without sewage, clean water, streets, electricity, roads or any kind of sanitation. The New York Times reported them to be America 's new " Third World " inside our own country.
Within 20 years, at their current growth rate, they expect 50 million residents of those colonias. (I've seen them personally in Texas and Arizona; it's sickening beyond anything you can imagine.) By enforcing our laws, we could repatriate them back to Mexico .
We invite 20 million aliens to go home, fix their own countries and/or
make a better life in Mexico.
We invite a million people into our country legally, more than all other
countries combined annually.
We cannot and must not allow anarchy at our borders, more anarchy within our borders and growing lawlessness at every level in our nation.
It's time to stand up for our borders, our language and our culture, and our way of life.

Well what do you think?
Cleveland Magazine has come out with the June issue that carries "Rating the Suburbs"
Painesville has managed to jump from 76th[dead last] to the 35th...WOW! what an improvement.
What did we do so different? Technical Resue Vehicle? New Police Chief? New E.M.S. squad?
Maybe it was something simple like investing in a "Painesville Magazine" published by the same people who do Cleveland Magazine.
If this is how it works I cannot blame any city official for last years results. The question should be is publishing Painesville Magazine a bribe, or blackmail?
What doi you think?
