It will be called an invasion when the illegals are squatting on the White House lawn making catcalls at Sasha and Malia, and drug cartels are cooking up cocaine in the basement of the US Capitol Building.

In other words, never. Five presidential administrations have betrayed the American people and signed the United States over to foreign invaders

It is now up to the American people to liberate their homeland on their own.

When we hit the million mark.

I would say when a million foreigners enter your nation without permission it's an invasion.

It has been an invasion for years. However, we will NEVER get our government to “officially” acknowledge it as such. After all, if they admit it’s an invasion, they would be obligated to do something.

Default So, when is it officially called an invasion?

It will be officially called an invasion when the illegals begin crossing the US/Canadian border from THIS side.

That happened a very long time ago, we currently have at least 20,000,000 illegals in the United States.

At its all time high, illegal population levels were never at 20 mil...where are these numbers comming from?

Not even CIS or the other anti-illegal immigration websites would place the current... I A population levels at 20 mil.

Ok then, how many illegals do we have? And don't tell me 12 million because that number has been thrown around since 2005.

Illegal immigration has always been a guesstimate. They thought the last mass amnesty would only involve 1 million, but when implemented, it was close to 3 million. Even a pro-illegal immigration attorney on C-Span admitted the numbers are most likely closer to 30 million. No one knows how many illegals are here.

Quote:
The Department of Homeland Security recently published a report on the total population of illegal immigrants in the U.S. The conclusion: the overall illegal immigrant population decreased from 11.6 million to 10.8 million in 2008, down further from 11.8 million in 2007.

As both the DHS report and an earlier report by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) indicate, this decline in illegal immigrant numbers within the U.S. coincides directly with the recent economic downturn and increased enforcement measures to encourage illegal immigrants to go home in 2005-2008.

In fact, according to the same CIS report, the number of illegal immigrants voluntarily returning home has more than doubled since 2007, compared to earlier in the decade.
10.8 mil in 2008...has the number gone up or down with our poor 2010 economy? 20 mil doesnt seem realistic under these economic conditions.
