If I may add

Illegal immigrants find it impossible to get bank loans without blowing their cover, so they carry no debt. They operate in a world of cash.

No debt, no interest payments, more money in their own pockets. I believe that if illegal immigrants were made legal residents today, our economy would boom tomorrow. States like CA, AZ, and NV, where housing was over built, would suddenly be short of houses. The formerly illegal immigrants would have the cash, and the legal status, to buy them up.
