Wisconsin a Magnet for Illegals (!!!)

Yah, that kinda got my attention, too.

...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."

Amnesty actually started with IRCA in 1986, a Reagan initiative, because he personally felt "get legal or get out" was the way to go (and also was against employer exploitation). Surpringly few people sought amnesty. I am personally familiar with the Reagan philosophy back then and wish it would have carried forward. It was compassionate, more than fair and had a lot of common sense.

Hey, Dad29, thank you for presenting the whole picture. Not that you have any distinct bias toward liberals or Democrats.

Mmmmm, what about ALSO presenting the data from the Pew Research Report in which "annual inflow of unauthorized immigrants to the United States was nearly TWO-THIRDS SMALLER in the March 2007 to March 2009 period than it had been from March 2000 to March 2005."

Or..."during the first half of the decade, an average of about 850,000 new unauthorized immigrants entered each year, increasing the unauthorized population from 8.4 million in 2000 to 11.1 million in 2005. SINCE THEN, the average annual inflow dropped to about 550,000 per year from March 2005 to March 2007 and declined further to an average of 300,000 per year for March 2007 to March 2009. As a result, the unauthorized population in 2009 returned to the level it had been in 2005."

"The underlying data are consistent with a previous Pew Hispanic Center report that found a sharply decreased flow of immigrants from Mexico to the United States since mid-decade, but no evidence of a recent increase in the number of Mexican-born migrants returning home from the U.S."

Furthermore, I'm glad to see that you are using the interpretations of a FINANCIAL TRADING WEBSITE to pass off the claim that "the more realistic number is much closer to 50-60 million [for illegal immigrants]" as true.

Sunday mass is around the corner! See you there!
