The top criminal population in California's prison system today are Latinos. There are El Salvadoran street gangs in Los Angeles which are being actively recruited by Al Queda.
"Hospitals are closing across the country due to the burden of illegal immigration, college students find that summer jobs have dried up due to illegal immigration, and wages across the board are depressed by the overwhelming influx of cheap and illegal labor," he said.
Mr. Gallegly said amnesties "only encourage more people to cross the border illegally," which he said was proven by a twofold increase in illegal immigration after a 1986 amnesty offered during the Reagan administration.

President Reagan's biggest mistake: Take the lazy option - simply declare them legal and the problem goes away.
