    Sobering facts and figures on illegal immigration

    Sobering facts and figures on illegal immigration

    by Frosty Wooldridge

    You might call illegal migration into America a slow moving freight train that features no brakes. The engineer can’t stop it because he’s sleeping at the wheel. The passengers on the train don’t notice the added baggage cars nor the cost. They paid their fare and think the road ahead is clear.

    Unfortunately, the road head grows more dangerous as to population growth by adding 138 million more people to the train. The environmental consequences grow as to carbon footprint, ecological footprint, quality of life and lowered standard of living for the passengers. But no one seems to understand the realities of adding that 138 million people onto the train or into the United States of America.

    For starters:

    · "In October 2008, the illegal immigrant population stood at 11.9 million according to the Pew Hispanic Center."(

    · "The U.S. Census Bureau showed that the nation's immigrant population (legal and illegal) reached nearly 38 million in March 2007, one-third of which are comprised of illegal immigrants."(Center for Immigration Studies, Center for Immigration Studies | Low-immigration, Pro-immigrant).

    · "If immigration continues at current levels, the nation's population will increase from 301 million today to 468 million in 2060 - a 167 million, or 56% increase.
    Center for Immigration Studies, Center for Immigration Studies | Low-immigration, Pro-immigrant).

    · "There are approximately 7.7 million illegal aliens employed in U.S. jobs in 2008."

    · "A 1997 study by the American Academy of Sciences found that the cheap labor of illegal immigrants and poor immigrants caused a 44% decrease in wages among the poorest Americans from 1980 to 1994."
    Center for Immigration Studies, Center for Immigration Studies | Low-immigration, Pro-immigrant).

    · "Amnesty for illegal immigrants will cause costs to increase significantly from $10.4 billion a year to $28.8 billion. This is because an amnesty program would transform an illegal immigrant to an "unskilled immigrant with legal status" who could access various government programs. However, due to low income, these "unskilled immigrants with legal status" would likely make very modest tax payments."
    Center for Immigration Studies, Center for Immigration Studies | Low-immigration, Pro-immigrant).

    · "Tax payments in illegal households are only 28% of other households primarily due to much lower levels in education, which subsequently results in low incomes and even lower tax payments." (Center for Immigration Studies, Center for Immigration Studies | Low-immigration, Pro-immigrant).

    · "A strategy of attrition through enforcement, which includes mandatory workplace verification and measures to curb misuse of Social Security numbers, could reduce the illegal population by as many as 1.5 million illegal immigrants each year."
    Center for Immigration Studies, Center for Immigration Studies | Low-immigration, Pro-immigrant).

    · "In 2007, E-Verify, a system to determine legal employment eligibility, received about 3 million queries, of which 157,000 were found to be unauthorized to work despite having previously evaded the paper version of the I-9 process, thus stopping their illegal employment." (Center for Immigration Studies, ).

    · " Illegal immigrants collectively represent a group that is a significant menace to the public. 80% have committed serious crimes in addition to immigration violations, and 40% have violent crime histories." (Center for Immigration Studies, Center for Immigration Studies | Low-immigration, Pro-immigrant).

    · "25-50% of all gangsters arrested in the criminal gang suppression efforts in northern and western Virginia are estimated to be illegal immigrants."(Study for Immigration Studies).

    · "Gang investigators in Virginia estimate that 90% of the members of MS-13, the most notorious immigrant gang, are illegal immigrants."
    Center for Immigration Studies, Center for Immigration Studies | Low-immigration, Pro-immigrant).

    · "The defeat of the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act of 2007 prevented the legalization of some 60,000 illegal immigrants, by providing them in-state college tuition and other education and government benefits not available to legal immigrants or citizens." (Center for Immigration Studies, Center for Immigration Studies | Low-immigration, Pro-immigrant).

    · "The DREAM Act also would have set in motion a process for potentially amnestying 2.1 million illegal immigrants, not counting the 1.4 million parents and siblings who would also likely have been legalized." (Center for Immigration Studies,

    Depending on the actual numbers of people to gain amnesty, the Heritage Foundation, expects the costs for amnesty to be $3 to $5 trillion dollars. Those figures include immigrants’ ability to tap into social security systems, education, welfare, food stamps, incarceration and medical care.


    In a five minute astoundingly simple yet brilliant video, “Immigration, Poverty, and Gum Balls, Roy Beck, director of www.numbersusa.ORG, graphically illustrates the impact of overpopulation. Take five minutes to see for yourself:

    To add more American disgrace, I am very much aware of an American Indian, more native to America likely than any of us, out of work, diagnosed with cancer, applying for assistance. Getting help even with food stamps was doomed, so the applicant suggested that she was one of the minority. "Oh no." the social worker responds, "we only get one or two native american applications a year. That is not enough here to count as a minority."

    Folks, get down into the trenches and discover the real discriminations going on!! It is not happening to illegal aliens, it is being done daily to real Americans. (I am of european descent, should it make a difference to anyone.)

    I know of another case where an older American needed artery surgery. Only social security for income, and not old enough for medicare. Hospital refused admission without some form of payor on board, even the hospitals chief of surgery encouraged the hospital to take him (was that Dr's patient.) Finally when the hospital's social worker said there is not one way that I can help you, the frustrated patient responded, "I bet if I was an illegal you'd help me." Unashamedly the hispanic social worker replied "Oh, yes I have many programs for those. You would have been taken care of."

    America: Land of the free illegal alien!!!!!!

    I beieve the dangers illustrated in this story fully!!!!!!
