Take Down The Bird Feeder

> I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch

    As any bird watching enthusiast will tell you, those birds are pretty enough that they are worth the trouble. Now if the analogy remains true with illegal immigrants- do they contribute more than they take- I don’t know.
