Illegal immigrants take jobs and resources away from Americans and DON'T pay taxes. If immigration laws are not followed than immigrants willing to follow the law and legally immigrate aren't rewarded for following the law. In a lot of cities illegal immigrants use services paid for by federal funding. This money is paid for by taxpayers and is meant to be used but only taxpayers. Cities not willing to comply with the law should not receive federal funding to make for the tax money spent on people who break the law.
