While the effects are most pronounced in our Southwestern border states, the effects of illegal immigration as well as the general increase in mass immigration are felt even in Alaska. Recently, immigration agents busted 25 illegal aliens at a seafood plant in Kenai. On May 1st of this year, approximately 1,000 people assembled at the Delaney Park Strip in Anchorage to express support for amnesty for illegal immigrants; they crowd was mostly Latino. Over 90 different languages are spoken in the Anchorage School District; the special treatment and funding for these students mandated by the Feds reduces funds available for other purposes, such as increased teacher compensation. Yes, the effects of mass immigration are definitely felt as far away as Alaska. Image above left courtesy of WorldNetDaily.

Frequently, they will inundate you with statistics purportedly showing how illegals "pay taxes", or pay for Social Security for which they're not eligible. Well, guess what? Here's a bunch of contrary statistics you can inundate THEM with in return.
