I want all of us to discuss the good things that we do as legal immigrants to America.

Once we come up with all; we can summarise into an article and we can send it to local news papers, so that all the people are educated with what legal immigrants are; and the benifits that we bring to American Society.

We pay inflated auto insurance rates therefore boosting the economy.
We pay inflated property tax due to our inability to apply for homestead exemptions therefore boosting the local economy.
We cannot carry concealed firearms therefore boosting the local crackhead economy.

Okay, on a more relevant note to your request...

I can't substantiate the numbers, but I am sure that we contribute more volunteer hours per capita due to our spouses not being able to work.

Lower crime rate per capita due to fear of deportation.

in order to reduce the crime rate, they should prolong the GC process!

Our kids do well in schools thereby helping to raise the standard of education.
Most immigrant kids go on to college, thereby increasing the level of professionalism of the human capital available to the American economy.

US did not invest in ou upbringing or education.
All those were paid by India (or other countries), we led unproductive part of our lives in India (or other countries)and contribute to US economy.
Free trained labor, in fact if you count spouse ->Buy one get one free.
