...Using data from the Pew Hispanic Center, the financial trading website known as Insider Monkey published a study last week listing the top ten states with the largest growth in illegal alien populations.
The study reflects the changes in those states from 2005-2009.
The results are as follows:
10. Tie between Ohio and Wisconsin: 20,000 more illegal aliens in each of those states, an increase of 20 percent.First place, by the way:
Texas: 200,000 more illegal aliens
Anecdotally, that's not completely unbelievable; Watertown is now a center of Hispanic gang activity. (!!!!!) WATERTOWN!
But that's not all, and it gets much, much worse.
The blog details how the Gummint comes up with its "12 million illegals here" line, and then proposes an alternative.
...the U.S. Border Patrol places a much higher estimate on the number of illegal aliens now in this country. For many years, the number of apprehensions at the border averaged about one million.
When you then use the very conservative estimate that at least three times that many got away, over 22 years, along with all of the people who never return home after their visa has expired, you get a much different number.
Using the Border Patrol’s own data and considering the relative ease with which drug smugglers and illegal aliens make multiple crossings into this country, the more realistic number is much closer to 50-60 million.And NOW you know why the (D) Party is so all-fired hot to trot about securing "amnesty."
