Well, I’m not moved by this report. sPEW research doesn’t impress me.
These folks still talk about 11 million illegal immigrants inside our nation. I don’t take them seriously, other than to realize they lie.
After adjustments to the 2000 Census, the government stated there were about 8.9 million illegal immigrants in 2000. And that figure was based on the fact that around 1990, the illegals had just been transitioned to citizens via Reagan’s amnesty.
We accumulated 8.9 million in ten years, but sPEW and the government want us to believe that from 2000 to 2009, only 25% of that figure had been added. In the early 2000s, the flow from Mexico was greater than it had ever been. Just about everyone agreed that the numbers were staggering. In the face of this, the government along with sPEW still claims that we only have 11 million here now. Bull s—t!
None of these groups are honest with regard to numbers. If we grant an amnesty right now, we’ll see between 20 and 35 million illegals step forward to become citizens.
The implications of this are very troubling.
You say Pew is dishonest with the numbers. Maybe yes, Maybe no. But why should we believe your 20-25 million number either ?
