Population of illegals could be double current government estimates
The population of illegal migrants is roughly 22 million, or twice the establishment estimate of 11 million, say three professors from Yale University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.This also probably explains why Democrats are so adamant about not questioning citizenship in the census. They do not want voters to know how much they benefit from illegals being counted in getting extra seats. Many on the right believe Democrats see counting illegals and in some cases getting their votes is the route Democrats are choosing to go to try to get a majority in the House of Representatives.
The shocking estimate will force establishment politicians and pro-migration advocates to recalculate the estimated impact of the huge illegal population on wages and salaries, on crime rates, welfare consumption, rental and real-estate prices, productivity rates, and the distribution of job-creating investment funds to coastal vs. heartland states.
The higher illegal population estimate helps explain why Americans’ wages and salaries have risen so little amid apparently record-low unemployment rates, and it also undercuts companies’ loud demands for yet more immigration of foreign workers, consumers, and renters.
