Again, Pewís data source is the federal government. If you still donít understand why their data cannot be accurate, there is absolutely nothing more I can possibly say.

Let’s put it this way. Over 3 million illegal aliens applied for amnesty, rather than the estimated 1 million the Census Bureau said were living in this country. Now, unless 2 million illegals entered our country after the amnesty bill passed, which is highly unlikely, they were already here.

Yes. They got the number for the foreign born population from the census. How is the number of foreign born from the census in question? Refrain from calling them all criminals likely to lie cheat and steal unless you have proof. Also, "I don't trust the government" isn't a valid method of debunking anything either.

Apparently this statement only lasted all of 1/2 a day:

And, yes, when relevant, I have linked to federal government sources. But, after a thorough assessment of their data source, or lack thereof, I have come to the realization that NONE of their data is credible.
Didn't take too long to just start flinging out stats that meet your needs again.

Trust the gov't when it suits you even when in a thread you started about how all the government studies are pure bogus. lol gold.

This is pointless. Clearly, you are either unable or unwilling to debate the topic. End of discussion.

Even drunker now, but you do realize that these things ate not insurmountable variables for statistical analysis/ modeling?

I never said they were. However, the salient point is the lack of verifiable data at the Census Bureau, not the number of participants.

I have explained this ad nauseam. Again, junk in, junk out.
"junk in, junk out" is not the grand refutation you seem to think it is.

In this case, it is. Perhaps you know of a credible study with garbage data as a basis. I donít. Why donít you share one, it must be quite a phenomenal feat.
