REPORT FINDS ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION SLOWING

Rate this Entry

The Pew Hispanic Center estimates the number of illegally present immigrants entering the US each year has dropped from 800,000 to 500,000 just in the last few years. They don't specify why this is happening except to acknowledge the two reasons being touted by advocacy groups:

The estimates are not designed to explain why the net growth rate has declined.
There could be a number of possible causes, including a slowdown in U.S.
economic growth that has had a disproportionate impact on foreign-born Latino
workers, at the same time that economic growth in Mexico and other Latin
American countries has been stable. Another factor could be a heightened focus
on enforcement of immigration laws, which a recent Pew Hispanic Center survey
indicates has generated worry among many Hispanics.

This bodes well for immigration reform in a likely friendlier 111th Congress that will be swor

Many moderates on the restrictionist side have stated that once there was clear evidence that the borders are secure, then we can look at the illegally present population and longer term solutions. Studies like this one will make it easier to argue that this benchmark has been achieved.

    With the way the things are going Americans have to look for jobs abroad, legally or illegally...and restrictions on immigration in the UK will bring down the faltering housing market.

    In my view, we are allowing the government to frame the immigration problem for us. We must consider that in some cases, such as here, the government is not acting in our own individual best interest.
    Thus, the term "illegal" associated with "alien" or "immigrant" is one of the government's invention.
    What we as individuals must do is look at the problem from our own perspective. It is my understanding that this has not been done very often and has not be heralded very effectively.
    The reality is that foreign nationals are in every recognized nation worldwide, creating a nearly fully integrated polyglot. To somehow require all these people to get their "papers in order" with respect to the local laws of each country is crazy.
    There has to be a better, more accommodating, and global solution. Like a national identity card that is accepted worldwide. This different than a passport and should be a smart card with various data on it relevant to the bearer and the country he or she hails from.
    Take a look at the end-to-end treatment of the immigration problem that has been prepared by Trigon-International, Inc. This is actionable, affordable, and feasible and more aptly it addresses the problem in situ meaning that the fix goes in without having to reset the pieces on the game board.
