Washington, DC, Jun. 14 (UPI) -- The number of illegal migrants arriving in the United States has exceeded the number of new legal immigrants, a Pew Hispanic Center report finds. In recent years some 700,000 unauthorized migrants have arrived annually, compared with about 610,000 legal immigrants. "Unauthorized Migrants: Numbers and Characteristics" was prepared by Jeffrey Passel, a veteran demographer and senior research associate at the center. The report estimates the number of people living in families in which the head of the household or the spouse is an illegal alien at 13.9 million as of March 2004, including 4.7 million children. The report also said at least 6.3 million unauthorized workers were employed as of March 2004, comprising 4.3 percent of the civilian labor force. Overall, illegal migrants are less educated than other sectors of the population, with 49 percent not having completed high school, compared with 9 percent of the native-born and 25 percent of legal immigrants.

Offer them a choice. They can stay here legally and peacefully, or be shipped off with their parents. If they then riot, DEFINITELY ship them out along with their parents.
I'm TIRED of the namby-pamby, wishy-washing around on this issue. If you're here illegally, go home or be shipped home. Those are ONLY two allowable options.
That sums up a lot of things quite nicely, doesn't it.
I am convinced GWB is doing this on purpose knowing the chaos that is ensuing with this illegal alien disaster.
And the gov't would have us believe that there are "only" 10 million of them in the country?
Triple that figure. ...at the very least.
Protect our borders and coastlines from all foreign invaders!
Be Ever Vigilant!

The changing face of America
There was a horrifying thread on this yesterday:
Gotta "outdo the EU!!" That's the battle cry!
You should see what California has become! A glance at parts of Los Angeles reminds me of a Mexican shanty border town.
Just a word about the wall idea. It would be extremely costly, might stop the flow of illegal immigrants, but cannot offer our nation security. Our two most vulnerable points for a nuclear or biological attack by terrorists are adjacent to Tijuana and Juarez, Mexico. San Diego, California and El Paso, Texas or not only prime targets for terrorists to strike our civilian population, but the major military installation nearby.
We need to start thinking way beyond a wall, or a massive military presence along the border. The solution must secure our nation, end the mass migration, and be lasting.
BTW, how did you get that link to print?
LOL! Never mind. Copy. Paste. I'm, upset I guess, not thinking....
That isn't really news. We don't need to be one country to be allies. The real news would be the fact that we aren't.
I wonder how many tax dollars it took to figure this out!
There is really only one legitimate solution to rioting.
