    Take your pick – mex’s from mexico or welfare students from illinois – both cost the American taxpayers the same. And illinois IS paying the 1500 bucks to leave their rauncy state because their welfare money is depleted. Nice huh?

    I think it must have taken that guy from Illinois with his $1500 lump sum to basically leave the state -no kidding- and drive his mason city chamber of commerce vehicle this far.
