More facts for libs to digest
"An analysis of Census Bureau data shows that the nation's foreign-born or immigrant population (legal and illegal) reached a new record of more than 35 million in March of 2005. The data also indicate that the first half of this decade has been the highest five-year period of immigration in American history."
The 35.2 million immigrants (legal and illegal) living in the country in March 2005 is the highest number ever recorded -- two and a half times the 13.5 million during the peak of the last great immigration wave in 1910.
Between January 2000 and March 2005, 7.9 million new immigrants (legal and illegal) settled in the country, making it the highest five-year period of immigration in American history.
Nearly half of post-2000 arrivals (3.7 million) are estimated to be illegal aliens. "
Let's see now....remember 65% of illegals don't have insurance.......
"One-third of immigrants lack health insurance -- two-and-one-half times the rate for natives. "
And the libs keeping telling us the illegals aren't a problem...ha....
and, as to the problems of illegals and care...
"Overburdened by the uninsured and overwhelmed by illegal immigration (search), public health care in Los Angeles is on life support.
Sixty percent of the county's uninsured patients are not U.S. citizens. More than half are here illegally. About 2 million undocumented aliens in Los Angeles County alone are crowding emergency rooms because they can't afford to see a doctor."
Wow...LA could solve its problems by sending those two million illegals back home.........
Code word 'undocumented'.....meaning 'ILLEGAL'..... 2 million in LA alone....
And you try to tell me that of the 47 million uninsured, none of them are illegals...Ha!....
