Feb. 12) -- The population of illegal immigrants in the U.S. has fallen by 1 million in the past two years due to a combination of the recession and increased law enforcement, according to the latest estimate by the Department of Homeland Security. While activists largely agree that the influx of illegal immigrants is at a welcome ebb, some vehemently contest the accuracy of the agency's figures and remain bitterly divided on what impact they should have on the country's immigration policy going forward.

Why would ANYONE be unhappy because the invasion of this country has lessened to some degree? WTH?????????????
One million less for Obamacare to cover...!
I always wondered if Mexicans were such a proud superior people (La Raza “The Race”) why 20% of their population has to invade a foreign country to work and use the other countries’ public assistance and ER’s “we have to treat everyone” policies? Why can’t they get their own country in order if they’re the top race, as they claim?
1 million down, +20 million more to go......looks like the recession will have to go on for another 20 years to get rid of the rest....unless the public sector finally gets around to checking on whether recipients of government services are actually citizens and deny services/benefits. Nah, that would be too much trouble.
Calling the invasion of America an “immigration policy” is like calling a bank
robbery a loan. When America runs out of workers to handle all it jobs, then
we can talk about “immigration policy”.
Until then, call it what it it...invasion of leeches.
These groups want nothing less then what they feel is their God-given right to screw up their own countries(notably Mexico) without consequence and then barge into ours as if they were walking into their own living room and their attitude is “Shut up f**king Gringo and pay my way through here you grande racsistas.’’ Screw them. This is our country, our home, our laws. Obey them and come here legally or stay the F out!
Since when does “immigration policy” have anything to do with illegals?
People that follow the US immigration laws are immigrants.
Illegals are criminals.
However, in places where they do get accurate counts, such as inmates in the California prison system, they claim that such estimates cannot be projected onto the population as a whole because, while illegals only come here to do the jobs Americans refuse to do, they make up about 40% of the population of the California prison system.
And ascertaining immigration status for activities such as applying for government assistance, signing up for driver's licenses or registering to vote can't be done because somehow it would be racist.
Here's a little experiment for the libtards: Leave your home unlocked for a week, but monitor it with video cameras. What do you think is more likely to happen:
i don’t believe it.
These groups and individuals began springing up like mushrooms in the 60s and show no signs of abating. Their very existence skews reality. For example does anyone think that racial issues will improve as long as the NAACP, which used to be relevant, exists?
They wield influence way out of proportion to their numbers, relevance and certainly their accuracy.
I dont believe a word that Dept says. Napolitano doesnt have a Clue
The nummber of illegals is unknowable. Nobody is at the border clicking away the count.
As far back as 2004, when the leak became a flood, the number 12 million was being tossed around. Since then, clear to anyone who looks around them, the footprint of illegals has spread cancerously. Unseen in 2004 in places outside the border states and a few enclaves like northern Virginia, Connecticut, and Long Island and Colorado, they are now everywhere - Maine, Minnesota, Idaho - everywhere.
And yet DHS and Napolitano and even the CIS want us to believe that the number is now 10 million??
There may be a reduction of a million due to the recession (certainly NOT enforcement), but it is a reduction not from the 12 million, but more likely the 20-30 million that are everywhere these days. Democrats know damn well that amnesty and citizenship for illegals will not add 10 million Democrat votes, but 20-30 million in the near term, and 50-100 million when newly legalized aliens are allowed to bring in children, parents, siblings, and phoney family members.
That the Democrats want this and will use false numbers and data to cover it up is no surprise. What is more amazing is that there are “Republicans” (Graham, Rove, Bushes, McCain, Flake, etc.) who actually think that these welfare-state teat-suckers aliens will be attracted to the Republicans.
If this is true it is good news but why would I trust the same federal government that is going out of their way to keep the border wide open and also actively encourage the invasion?
I don't believe it for a second. Illegals are still entering the US daily and there is no documented evidence that more illegal aliens are leaving the US than entering. The only documented repatriation stats from Mexico a few months back showed a few hundred people returning over a significant period of time.
I don’t believe it.
Based on what? Who has these “figures?” How the hell do they KNOW this??!!
The ONLY silver lining in the Obama Depression. Unfortunately, the Home Depot “army” seems to stay the same where I’m at.
This is a lobby that specializes in playing our heartstrings about the dire conditions that illegals live in, how they spend their lives "in the shadows," in constant fear and exploitation and misery and etc. etc. etc. etc.
Anyone wanting the population of such miserable wretches to grow leads one to believe that the well-being of such people is not their primary concern. It implies a larger agenda, a political and social agenda.
