Growing numbers of children of illegal immigrants are being born in this country, and they are nearly twice as likely to live in poverty than those with American-born parents...

Overall, illegal immigrants' children account for one of every 15 students in kindergarten through 12th grade.

In 2008, California had the most illegal immigrants at 2.7 million, double its 1990 number, followed by Texas, Florida, New York and New Jersey.

They need to spend tax payer money to do a study? Just come to NYC and look around. That’s all the studying you need.

Federal regulations regarding illegals must be followed and enforced. Our southern border must be protected from illegals. Illegals cost our country a minimum of 10 billion dollars a year in goods and services - ten billion which could go to help our legal citizens!

"Illegals" living in the US have bigger families than they would have if they remained in Mexico.

Why? Because the US government will pay for them. In Mexico, the government does not subsidize large families by poor people.

Get use to it. Our government won’t do a thing to change it. What have they done in the past? Talk, talk, talk. I don’t see anything changing.

Where are they birthing these children? Who's paying for the hospital? We are! WHY???? ENFORCE THE LAW ALREADY!!!!
Until we throw these two faced politicians out on their hind quarters they will continue to be “sympathetic” to these people who skirt the law abuse our medical facilities and even vote for these donkeys.

The dimensions of the Hispanic baby boom are startling. The Hispanic birthrate is twice as high as that of the rest of the American population. That high fertility rate—even more than unbounded levels of immigration—will fuel the rapid Hispanic population boom in the coming decades. By 2050, the Latino population will have tripled, the Census Bureau projects. One in three Americans will be Hispanic by mid-century, twice the current ratio. In states such as California and Texas, Hispanics will be in the clear majority. Nationally, whites will drop from near 70 percent of the total population in 2000 to just half by 2042. Hispanics will account for 46 percent of the nation’s added population over the next two decades.

If Obama legalizes their status, i.e., amnesty, the illegals will have more access to social and other services plus jobs. And we are still bringing in 1.2 million LEGAL immigrants every year and 138,000 foreign workers every month.

From CNN: Nearly 4 million children who have at least one parent who entered the U.S. illegally were born in the United States and are U.S. citizens as a result, according to the study conducted by the Pew Hispanic Center.

That’s about three quarters of the estimated 5.5 million children of illegal immigrants inside the United States, according to the study. About 1.8 million children of undocumented immigrants live in poverty, the study found.

“Among children whose parents are unauthorized immigrants, one in three is poor. The [poverty] rate of children of unauthorized immigrants is similar whether the children are unauthorized immigrants or U.S. born,” the study says.

Roughly 12 million illegal immigrants are in the United States — about 4 percent of the nation’s population. The study found that the majority of illegal immigrants, about 7 million, come from Mexico.

--Illegal immigrants' share of low-wage jobs has grown in recent years, from 10 percent of construction jobs in 2003 to 17 percent in 2008.

Construction didn't use to be considered a low wage job

Too right.

A personal anecdote: at the grocery store behind a Hispanic woman paying with WIC.

I saw her in the parking lot loading her stuff into a gleaming, late model GM Yukon.

I see... you can afford an expensive vehicle, but don't pay for your food?
