The wealthiest county per capita is in California and if you look at Gross State Product, CA makes almost twice as much at NY in second place.

Per capita it is a little bit different.  Of couse, we do have nearly half a million illegal aliens scampering into our state each year which doesn't help.

Add NY/NJ/CT together because it is a giant Metro-area around NYC, and that'll correct for the fact that CA is much bigger than NY.

They sustain the Silicon Valley?  I highly doubt that.  There are plenty of LEGAL immigrants that could take the lower paying jobs.  Just like last May 1st America has really seen the power of illegal immigrant workers. 

Besides, how do higher levels of crime, higher levels of violence, over crowding in prisons, increased gang activity, lower literacy rates, increasing applicants for government assistance programs, over crowding public schools, diverting funds with in public schools, and overwhelming/distracting of law enforcement sustain our economy?

• In Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide (which total 1,200 to 1,500) target illegal aliens. Up to two-thirds of all fugitive felony warrants (17,000) are for illegal aliens.

• A confidential California Department of Justice study reported in 1995 that 60 percent of the bloody 18th Street Gang in California is illegal (estimated membership: 20,000); police officers say the proportion is undoubtedly much greater. The gang collaborates with the Mexican Mafia, the dominant force in California prisons, on complicated drug distribution schemes, extortion, and drive-by assassinations, and is responsible for an assault or robbery every day in Los Angeles County. The gang has dramatically expanded its numbers over the last two decades by recruiting recently arrived youngsters, a vast proportion
illegal, from Central America and Mexico.

• The leadership of the Columbia Li’l Cycos gang, which uses murder and racketeering to control the drug market around L.A.’s MacArthur Park, was about 60 percent illegal in 2002, says former Assistant U.S. Attorney Luis Li. Frank "Pancho Villa" Martinez, a Mexican Mafia member and illegal alien, controlled the gang from prison, while serving time for felonious reentry following deportation.

Yes, there are lots of statistics about this.  I never said that illegal aliens are the cause of all evil in this country, although lawlessness definately doesn't make the U.S. a more democratic place to live. 

I understand that they come here to seek a better life (many do, not all-there are those who just want to use the U.S.)

Another sad little fact is that 1/4th of Guatemala's GDP is based off of remitances (money sent by Guatemelans in the U.S. and other countries back to their families). 

Finally, if they are all so proud of their countries, why don't they try and change their governments and their policies instead of coming up here and trying to force us to accomodate them.

   the incarceration rate for immigrants was just one-fifth the rate for the population as a whole

Yes, legal immigrants.  I am talking about ILLEGAL ones.  I encourage legal immigration.

No flame, just an honest opinion.  Why aren't their marches and protests in the streets of Mexico or Nicaragua demanding less gov't corruption, greater civil rights, etc.?  Just because the statistics show that you are wrong, doesn't mean that you have to call names and run.

In Minnesota, illegal immigrants and their children cost the educational system an estimated $118-$157 million extra dollars.  Can you imagine what those numbers are in California where class sizes are already swollen and schools under funded?
