These numbers are laughable.
Fast facts from Seton Hall University Institute on Work and the Pew Hispanic Center:
Roughly 500,000 illegal immigrants are believed to be living in New Jersey.
About 12 million illegal immigrants are estimated to be living in the United States.
More than half of all illegal immigrants are said to have entered the country lawfully, but overstayed visas.
Actually, I referenced you to an unclear post. You may have followed it; but I wanted to clarify.
This was the reference I was adding to your post:
Advocacy group wants office of immigrant affairs
New Jersey Immigration Policy Network ^ | 01/24/06
10-page document issued by New Jersey Immigration Policy Network to the Governor New Jersey Immigration Policy Network, a coalition of more than 70 civil rights, community and social services organizations, recently presented Corzine with a 10-page issue paper asking him to take action within his first 100 days in office. (snip)....network executive director Partha Banerjee was optimistic. “Based on what he has done in the past, I’m very hopeful he’ll put words into action,” Banerjee said. The network wants Corzine to appoint an advisory committee to explore establishing a statewide office to coordinate services to New Jersey’s immigrant communities.
The numbers you cited at post 54 were from a census analysis I had transfered that was about 3 years old now. So the numbers haven’t been updated.
