In 2007, it was estimated that there were 12.2 million illegal aliens in the US. When the recession hit and work got harder to find, the official estimate dropped to 11.3 million in 2009. The last figures available come from March of 2012 and they indicated that the number of illegals had risen to 11.7.
From everything I’ve read and the people I know living in areas that have high numbers of illegals, I would not be surprised to find out that in the year and half since the last official numbers to find out that the number of illegals has already topped the record high 12.2 million in 2007.
According to Pew Research Hispanic Trends Project, the percentage of Mexican illegals has dropped to 52% of all illegals. That means that more illegals are coming from other Central and South American countries as well as Arab countries. My sources tell me that more and more Qurans and Muslim prayer rugs are being found in the southern deserts of Arizona where illegals have been crossing into the US.
A number of Muslim extremists have been traveling to Central and South America to learn the language and culture. Then they make their way to our border with Mexico and into the US. All the while, Homeland Security and Customs watches for them at airports and ports along the coasts.
Obama’s programs of giving tons of benefits to illegals that most US citizens don’t get and now his promise of amnesty and a pathway to citizenship is drawing more illegals across the border. Obama is tying the hands of some law enforcement agencies, making it harder for them to stop and arrest illegals. After all, the Democrats need those millions of illegal votes to help keep them in charge of America, so they aren’t going to do anything to stop them and the numbers are going to continue to go up and up and up.
