      Because they want more people to enslave and tax the crap out of.They can't get half the citizens off public assistance payroll of one form or another.So they got to tax somebody and the illegals are coming WILLINGLY. It's perfect for the government at all levels.That's why they are bending over backward & Showering these illegals with gifts Like Drivers licence's so they can drive to work ,open bank account,.or the government sold or gave California to Mexico where E-verify laws don't apply.

    My son and I garden right across the street from where the body was found, at the community garden. This crime scene area is isolate from the rest of the neighborhood and there are no homes located because of a nursery, at least on that section of the street. I have witnessed people doing drugs, prostitution, and public drinking of alcoholic beverages. Stolen cars have been abandoned and burned on several occasions; it is common to find old furniture and refuse left by people outside of the neighborhood. For the most part, the people here are hardworking, from various backgrounds and cultures. I hope that police efforts will focus on keeping criminal elements from our neighborhood.
