Mr. Ball feels the DREAM Act should pass because we "don't fear minorities." I agree, Mr. Ball. However, U.S. citizen minorities are hurt most by illegal immigration. According to the Inter-American Development Bank, $69.2 billion was sent "back home" to Latin America by undocumented workers in 2009 alone. That money is forever lost to U.S. workers and permanently removed from the U.S. economy. Between 2009 and 2010, immigrants (57% illegal) have gained 656,000 jobs, while U.S. born workers lost 1.2 million jobs. Most of these jobs lost were minority jobs. Mr. Ball, if you want to help minorities, help US born minorities get jobs and education first!
