    Stats on Illegal Immigration


    Since many folks are uninformed about what is really going on and there seems to be a lot of conjecture about facts, I decided to get some real numbers that tell some of the story about the impact of illegal aliens to the US economy and services.  This data is from a 2006 (First Quarter) INS/FBI report on Undocumented Immigrants.


    Remember, these numbers are for 2006, the problem hasn't gotten any better.  Perhaps the only saving grace is that the US economy (well...the world economy) went in the toilet...otherwise who knows how bad this problem would be.
