Feds Lying About 11 Million Illegals

Thursday, 07 September 2006 12:00 AM

Last month Homeland Security intentionally lied to the American people by claiming there are only 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States.

The true total is nearly three times that.

The 11 million figure is courtesy of a report released in August 2006 by the Office of Immigration Statistics of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

The figure is intentionally understated. We discovered this while researching our book, "Minutemen: The Battle to Secure America's Borders," and we believe it is done so as not to alarm the U.S. public.

Why do we make this charge? To begin with, those conducting government surveys never ask directly, "Are you an illegal immigrant?" (To ask this question would be objectionable to many – certainly to illegal aliens and their enablers.) So, instead of asking this question, government researchers ask, "Are you foreign-born?"

If people acknowledge being foreign-born, they are asked when they arrived in the United States and whether or not they are U.S. citizens. Based on these answers, researchers make an estimate as to whether or not respondents are here illegally.

In other words, the government doesn't know how many illegal aliens are on U.S. soil, and it won't even ask relevant questions in its surveys. Instead, it prefers to guess.

We interviewed Dr. Jeffrey S. Passel at the Pew Hispanic Research Center in Washington, D.C., whose own estimates agree with those released by DHS.

Dr. Passel admitted that the government typically uses indirect means to estimate how many illegal aliens are in the United States. "Basically, we subtract the legal foreign-born population from the total foreign-born population that's in the survey, to get an estimate of the unauthorized migrants who appear in the survey," Dr. Passel told us in a telephone interview.

Now, the U.S. government excels at keeping statistics. The "U.S. Statistical Abstract" counts tens of thousands of measures that the government uses to make laws and enforce regulations. Everything from congressional representation to taxation issues, to how school budgets are allocated and transportation regulations enforced, are tallied and reported each year in the "Abstract."

When it comes to taxing its citizens, getting accurate numbers doesn't seem to be a problem. And yet our government can more exactly estimate how many hot dogs and hamburgers will be sold at next year's Super Bowl than estimate the number of illegal aliens in the United States today.

The government, for instance, does not count as illegal the millions of "anchor babies" who are born in the United States to illegal aliens. Under the federal government's politically correct interpretation of the 14th Amendment, anchor babies born here are U.S. citizens, not illegal aliens. And the government doesn't count the millions of illegals granted citizenship under one of the many amnesties Congress has passed since 1986.

The point is that illegal immigration numbers are all about politics. The term "illegal immigrant" is hated by supporters of open borders precisely because "illegal immigrant" describes too directly what is obviously going on. Supporters of unlimited open immigration want us to see illegal immigrants as "unauthorized migrants," or "undocumented immigrants," even as "guest workers." Spin is in — and simple English is the enemy.

Based on our research while writing our book, when groups the federal government excludes from its "official" estimates are properly counted, we conclude that there are currently 30 million illegal immigrants in the United States. That's right — 30 million, or nearly three times the number that DHS is guessing.

What's more, the evidence also suggests there are 10,000 more illegals crossing our unguarded borders every day. This translates to approximately 75,000 illegal immigrants crossing each week, with 4-6 million new illegals entering the U.S. each

These are unvetted, unapprehended aliens who intend to blend into our society and occupy our territory. Many having no intention whatsoever of assimilating and yet have no intention of returning to their homelands either.

This illegal alien invasion is the equivalent of four army divisions a week. While these individuals are busy entering and occupying American territory, our elected officials are busy forcing citizens and legal immigrants to pay for the "privilege" of being invaded.

The rate of illegal immigration is increasing geometrically. Within 5 to 10 years, we may see 10 million or more illegals crossing our borders each year. At this rate, somewhere around the year 2025, we may end up with 100 million illegal aliens in the United States — 1/3rd of more of our total population.

No wonder our government doesn't want an accurate count of illegal immigrants, especially not if an honest and direct methodology called for asking any "politically incorrect" questions in a "politically incorrect" manner.
