Newsflash: pointy heads admit the numbers thrown around on illegal immigration have been fudged downward massively, for a long time:
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- There are roughly twice as many undocumented immigrants in the U.S. as commonly believed, according to a sweeping new study by MIT Sloan School of Management's Mohammad Fazel-Zarandi, a Senior Lecturer in the Operations Research and Statistics group, and his colleagues, Edward Kaplan and Jonathan Feinstein, both from Yale School of Management.Our take?
The study, which is published today in PLOS ONE, estimates that there are about 22.1 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S.; the most prominent current estimate is 11.3 million.
Well, while doubling the old estimate is mighty white of the folks at MIT, the reality is that illegal immigration was running at over 1M/yr when the old number was promulgated...19 years ago.
So now? It's probably a minimum of 30M.
Call it Migra Metric Math: take whatever number the Left throws out, and double it; then double it again, and you'll probably be pretty close.
And our SWAG inclination is that if MIT is willing to concede 22M, then the real number is much higher, and may be as high as 44M.
When Reagan signed amnesty, we were told there were nearly a million(!), and it turned out to be over three million. And that was in the mid-1980s. It's swollen a wee bit since then, we reckon.
Build the Great Big Wall, and start shoveling the f**kers back over it with both hands, and we'll stop quibbling about it.
Get it down to a few hundred thousand non-permanent ones who come up here, pick fruit for a day's wage, and return home, and you can send all you want, every harvest season.
It became a problem when they came up here, brought the whole extended 27-person family, dropped eleven anchor babies, and moved in permanently, turning vast swaths of formerly America into Trashcanistan and Sh*tholia in the process. And the only thing they're picking these days, is picking up welfare checks, by the metric f**k-ton.
That b.s. has got to cease.
