Elephant In The Room...

NEW YORK ( -- With unemployment still at a severe high, a majority of states have drained their jobless benefit funds, forcing them to borrow billions from the federal government to help out-of-work Americans.

A total of 33 states and the Virgin Islands have depleted their funds and borrowed more than $38.7 billion to provide a safety net, according to a report released Thursday by the National Employment Law Project. Four others are at the brink of insolvency.


And yet the tide of immigration (both legal and illegal) continues to flood the already sinking ship of state with only a mousy politically correct protest from few elements on the "conservative" right.
