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.

....and we're supposed to believe there's a "War on Terror"?
Why should we even have borders, or countries. Just let everyone roam the world freely. It's good for business.
Time to build a wall. (well, it's BEEN time to build a wall).
Once the wall is up, and the next survey (2010) rolls around, we document every illegal, and require they get their citizenship within the next 3 or so years, or else be deported.
Just my simple solution.
Yes, we really don't need countries any longer just coporations or families to take care of business.
yup , then it'll be OK if I only wait to pay taxes, the gubm'nt is shirking a BIG part of it's job
That's where we're going. Does "Bush Dynasty" ring a bell?
Precisely the plan - One World Order.
Just curious, but you don't have any illegals doing the "construction" on your profile page, do you? Hehe.
I heard a local radio talk show host posit a theory about why the US ISN'T working harder to make a stronger border along south and north...
Remember, I HEARD this as a theory, I didn't make it up!!
He said that he thinks that the governments of US, Canada, and Mexico have talked secretly about eventually making our three countries ONE huge "union", similar to Europe...
The reason, he opined, that they would want to do that is because of China...he said that China is getting stronger, and because of trade, is working closely with other countries, that are not "real friendly", like Cuba, Venezuela, and others...
The thinking is that if these 3 countries, became one "north American nation", they would only have to worry about the borders along the oceans, not between the countries, when it comes to defense against enemies, such as China, Russia, N. Korea, etc...
IOW, we would also have use of their militaries (such that they are) to help enforce the shorelines, and we would also have use of both countries "fly-over" space for any kind of defense system and air force...
I guess he was saying that since China its self has like 2.5 million in their military, it would take the cooperation of our neighbors to help defend/attack that country, if ever necessary...
Just thought I would pass that theory along, as to why Bush hasn't been more hardline with Mexico about the borders!
I don't trust anything coming out of the Pew Hispanic Center. I suspect their numbers for illegals is drastically understated.
Shazammmm! Gosh this is breaking news (to some morons.)
Drip, drip, drip.... Somehow, it is still not a priority to stop the invasion.
The number of illegal migrants arriving in the United States has exceeded the number of new legal immigrants...

One too many steps. Only 1) and 3) are needed. Find'em---then ship'em out.
yeah but i was trying to be somewhat realistic. if we just up and deported every illegal, there would be lots of second-hand legals (born here, legality in question) who would take to the streets. riots would ensue.
if only we could do it your way...that would be ideal.
Someone sent this to me via email the other day. I cleaned it up for the purposes of posting here.
We could substitute other euphemisms that are used in the media for the corporate buzzwords here, and play the same game!
Bravo Sierra Bingo - How to stay awake at meetings
1. Before or during your next meeting, seminar, personnel and budget committee, or conference call, prepare yourself by drawing a square 5" x 5" on a piece of paper. Divide the square into columns, five across and five down. That should give you 25 one-inch blocks of space.
2. Write one of the following words/phrases in each space:
at the end of the day
out of the loop
think outside the box
give it your best shot
3. Check off the appropriate box when you hear one of the above words/phrases.
4. When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, stand up and shout: "Bravo Sierra!"
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!

they must be using the new math...

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.
What are you talking about? What's so expensive about a silly wall. Don't listen to the spin. In some places it can be bob wire. Other places chain link. Other tall corrugated metal like the Israelis are using. Don't kid yourself, we can build a wall, and if we wanted to we could pay illegals $6.25/hour to do it for us, which I happen to think is a good idea.
The main thing is to back it up with force. Not the threat of, but actual force, then the faucet will close. THEN the threat will start to be effective, but not until the peasants are shown who is boss.
High tall would the wall have to be to fend off a terrorist attack with nuclear or biological weapons along our border?
My point is that the wall can stop the illegal migration, but cannot secure our major border cities from a terrorist attack with weapons of mass destruction. We need to think well into the future. A failure to do so invites something worse than 9-11.
Should read: How tall would the wall have to be to fend off a terrorist attack with nuclear or biological weapons along our border?
You can't address every threat with one solution dude. You sound like one of the libs. If a wall won't fix every problem, lets don't do anything at all. Let's TALK for a few more years. Let's REACH OUT to the mexicans. Let's PAY THEM not to come, Let's be SENSITIVE. After all, WE ARE THE WORLD.
Listen, pal, the world doesn't work that way. The REAL world walks over the corpses of candy-assed effeminated fops of countries that actually believe that PC crap. The REAL world is a MANS world, and the biggest, toughest, meanest man in the neighborhood is the one that survives.
Anybody that tells you anything different wants to steal your wife, or your child, or your livlihood, or your life.
They deserve that and much more support.
Keep up the good work. We need to get the word out. Too bad not enough people took the little guy with the big ears seriously.
Roger that, Brother!
Be Ever Vigilant!
I've seen the China-Latin America link before. Of course, the "threat" of China can be used as a justification for what they were going to do anyway, starting back in the Carter years with the Trilateral Commission, then NAFTA, then GATT, now CAFTA.
And why do we do so much trade with China and have a huge deficit with them? That's one to think about.... It certainly hasn't made them an ally.
BTW, India is set to surpass China in population, I think, 2010 or 2012.
My theory is that political enmity is just a smokescreen for furthering the money and power interests of the elite.
Good work, Detective Diver!!! ;-)
