    A recent census data is shocking - … xas-345-nm
    We are always told by the media there is an estimate of 20 million undocumented immigrants here.
    How is this possible considering they also come here and have children...over the last 30 years in large numbers.
    It should be a known quantity don't you agree?
    We should have a good estimate of how many people that are here illegally and have false identities...
    I am sure most of them have some form of ID, driver liscense, library cards, bus pass, even fake social security cards...
    They are not undocumented but falsely documented.
    I am also pretty sure they have jobs and pay taxes...
    That is not what I am focused on.
    They are here and their children are attending schools, and go to our hospitals and using our public facilities...
    Here is the 64,000 dollars question.
    Perhaps google can use this in their hiring test?
    Thinking out of the box, how many illegal immigrants are here among the 320 million people?
    Asking the right questions may lead to a proper response as to how to deal with this problem.
    It can only get worse if not checked.
    I am not only taking about from our sourthern borders.
    Check out Flushing NY, and you will see 70% Asian immigrants...

    See what is going on in Europe and Germany...
    That is our future.

      A matter of terminology only, but "undocumented immigrant" is nearly meaningless.  Immigration to the US requires certain documentation and, if citizenship is desired, certain actions as well.  The people you speak of have done (or attempted) neither; the correct terminology is closer to "illegal alien" as they are citizens of a foreign country in the US illegally.

      Does it matter?  Yes - the term "undocumented immigrant" is used to somehow legitimize the action of living here illegally and, in a small way, contributes to the problem of millions upon millions of illegal aliens in the country.  It is used to "hide" the fact that the laws of the country are being ignored and flaunted by criminal citizenry of other countries.

        You are right. I use the term that is politically correct. Another term I came up with that is less offensive is "uninvited guests". I even wrote a hub on that topic a while back.
        They are illegal and that has been the problem all along. Confusing the legal immigrants with illegal immigrants as if they are one and the same. The left's argument is always we are a nation of immigrants...   they delibrately left out the word legal.
        Another talking point is that no humans are illegal... technically yes, they are correct but we all know what the illegal refers to - not the person but the act of crossing our borders uninvited.

          And being PC, cooperating with the effort sweep criminal activity under the rug while promoting tear jerk reactions over reason, is a big part of the problem.

    Let me present some numbers...
    There are 320 million Total population in US
    There are roughly 3 million incarcerated in US prisions...
    There are estimated 33% of prison population are undocumented felons.
    1 million divided by 12 million official undocumented is a crime rate of 8%.

    That is 8 times the rate of the general population.

      I have seen the statistics being report lately.  It really is something that needs adult discussions.  There are many economical concerns, the drug epidemic, high level of crimes, etc.  I don't have the answers but I will be listening carefully.  There is cause for alarm.

        A new article from Ann Coulter - … ica-first/
        She is dead on 100%.

          While I respect Ann very much for her intelligence and ability to think and express herself very well, she is honest, she seems to lack the element of spiritual insight and discernment.  She has been sounding to me, that she thought Trump was more than just a man to begin with, like a savior or something, and she is disappoint that he isn't.  She began to ring hallow to me when her expectations of Trump didn't go exactly the way she wanted and she had a hissy fit because she isn't all that, instead of a good self examination of herself and house-cleaning, she blames Trump.  Or, something like that, I really don't care to put much thought into it. I just know that she rings hallow to me, no anointing, but God does use her.

          She is onto something, although I can't agree that she is 100% right.  Certainly the DemocRats will try to mimic Trump's strengths, but who is going to fall for their deception, other then those they have deceived and brainwashed already.  People are waking up though and becoming disillusioned, many just won't .. not even when the whole earth is shaken.

          We certainly are living in Revelation, Ann doesn't seem to realize that.  Well, I may have said too much and will now come under insults from unbelievers for not being PC.

          Stay blessed!

      Make fun all you want.
      It is a problem whether you want to address it or not.
      It is already too late for some neighborhood.
