Illegal-Immigrant Population Dropping: New Report Finds Significant Decline Since Last Summer
WASHINGTON (July 25, 2008) â€” A new analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies of monthly data collected by the Census Bureau shows that the illegal-immigrant population has declined significantly between last summer and May of this year. The study is the first to find quantitative evidence that illegal-immigrants are leaving the country. It also examines the extent to which stepped-up enforcement and the downturn in the economy account for this trend.The report, entitled "Homeward Bound: Recent Immigration Enforcement and the Decline in the Illegal Alien Population," is embargoed until Wednesday, July 30th at 2:30 pm. The study will be available online at www.cis.org. Advance copies are available to the media.The Center will formally release the report at a press conference on Wednesday, July 30th at 2:30 pm in room 1309 of the Longworth House Office Building. The reportâ€™s lead author, Dr. Steven Camarota will be joined by Representatives John Barrow (D-GA), Lamar Smith (R-TX), Tom Feeney (R-FL) and Heath Shuler (D-NC) to discuss the implications of the study.For more information, contact Steven Camarota at (202) 466-8185 or email@example.com
This brings back memories of crime in New York
, before Giuliani. There was so much crime
that people seemed to think that "nothing could be done."
Actually, something could be done, it`s just that no one was doing it.
Remember that the immigration raids that Bush is doing are only happening because amnesty failed, and that amnesty only failed because a large number ofÂ people cared enough to phone the Senate
, and shut down the Senate switchboard
with the sheer volume of their calls.
