Richard Nixonwas the 37th President of the United States and whose legacy will forever be the Watergate Scandal, code name Operation Deep Throat that occurred in 1972. Five men were caught breaking into the Democratic National Headquarters located at the Watergate business complex. When investigation went into processing, Nixon and his advisors chose to cover-up the incident. Few will remember that President Nixon made profound statements like:
The people's right to change what does not work is one of the greatest principles of our system of government.
The US Congress and political elements of the executive branch over the decades have been guilty of continuing the same policies and ideologies despite proof that they do not work or achieve results expected or professed.

Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776:
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. ...

Forty-million Americans are on food stamps, 26 million more than in 2007 before Obama was elected. The cost to government is $77 million, and FBI Reports show there is a huge increase on abuse of the system; along with abuse of other programs like Medicare by medical practitioners. Presently there are 70 programs that provide cash, food, housing, medical care, and social services to low-income persons. The total cost is almost $1 trillion.
Adjusted for inflation, welfare spending is 13 times higher today than it was in 1965, when Washington launched the War on Poverty [President Lyndon Johnson]. Yet the proportion of people living in poverty remains essentially unchanged.

Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence. – John Adams

I, Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News wrote a column titled, "Mexican Visitor's Lament."
I interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while visiting Denver last week. Hernandez said, "Illegal aliens pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes. What happens to your country's economy if 20 million people go away?"
Hmmm, I thought, what would happen?
So I did my due diligence, buried my nose as a reporter into the FACTS I found below.
It's a good question... it deserves an honest answer. Over 80% of Americans demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped. But what would happen if all 20 million or more vacated America? The answers I found may surprise you!
