What’s the Real Number of Illegals in America?

Few things require a more willing suspension of common sense than a single statistic pounded into the heads of the public by corrupt progressives and their equally corrupt media collaborators. The Daily Signal columnist William Campenni gets right to the heart of the matter, explaining that a call to any journalist, pundit, anchor, strategist or lobbyist asking about the total number of illegals in this country and the source for that number yields two identical answers: 11 million illegals, sourced by the Pew Research Center.

And where does Pew get its information? “An estimated 11.3 million unauthorized immigrants lived in the U.S. in 2014, according to a new preliminary Pew Research Center estimate based on government data,” their website states. “Government data” is shorthand for the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Census Bureau. In December 2003, DHS estimated between 8 million and 12 million illegal aliens resided in the United States—and that 700,000 more enter each year and remain here. Writing for the Colorado Alliance for Immigration Reform, Fred Elbel highlights the absurdity of those stats. “As of 2014, those estimates have not changed for eleven years, even though the official annual increase alone would yield an (sic) corrected estimate of 15.7 million to 19.7 million illegal aliens today (not adjusting for Obama’s unconstitutional 2014 executive amnesty),” he explains.
