The immigration numbers game, Year 2011.

April 23, 2011 § Leave a comment

According to a new study, a two-decade rise in undocumented immigration peaked in 2007, with an estimated 12 million people in the country illegally or overstaying a legal entry. That compares with 3.5 million in 1990.  The nation saw the trend reverse in 2008 and 2009, dropping to just over 11 million here illegally, where it stayed in 2010.  About 800,000 deportations occurred in 2009 and 2010.  The numbers have not moved in the last two years despite the record number of deportations. 
 
All of this fails to consider how many of these undocumented people have paperwork in process to become legal.  Trust me, there are a lot of them. 
And even if it takes a couple of years, the law will change again.
