There are more places than just the Northeast that are not experiencing the influx of Mexican illegals. I'm sure folks along the Mexican border have trouble with illegals; it's been happening for years. Your comment could be turned around to claim that your observations of what your area is experiencing isn't reflective of what is going on in the rest of the country. My point is that the activists make a lot of noise, and get a lot of press. It has always been so, but it doesn't mean that we are being 'invaded' as some want to claim.
