10.3 Million New Immigrants ~ Half Of Them Illegals

Theodore Roosevelt

Immigration at Record Level, Analysis Finds
NYT ...for complete article

Immigration over the past seven years was the highest for any seven-year period in American history, bringing 10.3 million new immigrants, more than half of them without legal status, according to an analysis of census data released today by the Center for Immigration Studies in Washington.

One in eight people living in the United States is an immigrant, the survey found, for a total of 37.9 million people — the highest level since the 1920s.

The majority of immigrants arriving in recent years are from Mexico and Central America, and more than half of them are illegal.

The states that have received the largest numbers of the new immigrants are also states where immigration has been hotly debated. After five states that have been high on the immigration list for decades — California, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey and Texas — those receiving the most new immigrants included Arizona, Georgia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Wild Thing's comment.........

That this invasion happened on George Bush’s watch, with absolutely nothing being done except a push for amnesty, will be the lasting lousy legacy of his presidency. It has cost our nation billions, debased our culture, and taken the lives of thousands of U.S. citizens who were victims of crimes perpetrated by illegals. Shameful.

"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin.

But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all.

We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people." ~ Theodore Roosevelt January 03, 1919

"No man's life, liberty, or property is safe while the Legislature is in session." (Mark Twain, 1866)... "Let's suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress, but then I would be repeating myself."
(Mark Twain, 1867)... Can you give me Shania Twain's address in Switzerland? 22 Twain 2007?

WT... Brigitte Gabriel - a patriot in Virginia Beach - is fully aware of this 'Invasion USA' and of the 10 states you listed, five WERE red states in the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections: Fla, TX, AZ, GA and Virginia. Now you know why NY Dummycrat Gov. Spitzer wanted to give illegal aliens NY Drivers Licenses! Bush took 30 red states in 2000 and 31 in 2004...
GOD HELP US now more than ever WT.

Bush 41 will forever be remembered for his misstatement, "No new taxes".

Bush 43 will forever be remembered for his misstatement, "They are doing jobs Americans won't do!"

I for one get tired of these articles referring to these Illegal Aliens as Immigrants. They're not Immigrants, their Illegal Aliens. Referring to them as Immigrants is an insult to all the Immigrants who came to this country according to the law with the hopes of becoming American Citizens.

The Illegal Aliens are those who have no respect for the laws of the United States. They have no desire to assimilate and learn our language.

I yearn for the old quarantine days where the sick and undesireables were simply turned around and sent back, but those were the legal immigrants who were exposed to the law of the land, that said I fully agree with BobF. These illegals are here because they chose to break our laws and steal our livelyhoods, Bush should be impeached for two reasons, failing to uphold the law of the land and failing to honor his oath of office, that includes Congress.
President Eisenhower cut off this illegal traffic. He did it quickly and decisively with only 1,075 United States Border Patrol agents - less than one-tenth of today's force. In 1951, Ike wrote a letter to Sen. William Fulbright (D) of Arkansas. The senator had just proposed that a special commission be created by Congress to examine unethical conduct by government officials who accepted gifts and favors in exchange for special treatment of private individuals.Sounds eerily like McCain, Murtha, Reid and Pelosi.
General Eisenhower, who was gearing up for his run for the presidency, said "Amen" to Senator Fulbright's proposal. He then quoted a report in The New York Times, highlighting one paragraph that said: "The rise in illegal border-crossing by Mexican 'wetbacks' to a current rate of more than 1,000,000 cases a year has been accompanied by a curious relaxation in ethical standards extending all the way from the farmer-exploiters of this contraband labor to the highest levels of the Federal Government." Years later, the late Herbert Brownell Jr., Eisenhower's first attorney general, said in an interview that the president had a sense of urgency about illegal immigration when he took office. America "was faced with a breakdown in law enforcement on a very large scale," Mr. Brownell said. "When I say large scale, I mean hundreds of thousands were coming in from Mexico [every year] without restraint." Folks that was 56 years ago the condition is still a problem that Congress and the president will not address, it affects their illegal constituents voting block. What has happened since JFK took office? Reagan didn't do us any favors with his amnesty it only exacerbated the problem. They are criminals period.

drstrangeloveb52isok, she is excellent and has really spoken out.

Yes I agree we are in very threatening times.

Tom, those two things they said sure says a lot. I am sooooo done with the Bush family.

Posted by: Wild Thing at December 1, 2007 01:08 AM

Bob, I agree so much with what you said.

I too wish they would refer to them as to what they are illegals. The media hates to call it what it is. I think that is why they mix them all together so they 'think' they can trick the sheep brained leftie audience. grrrrrrr

Jack great comment thanks for putting the President Eisenhower information there. He handled it the way I wish it was handled today.

Reagan said later too that he wished he hadn't done the amnesty thing that he was wrong.
