I keep seeing references to an invasion of illegals into America, however i see very little mention on where the data for this invasion actually comes from and how many illegals are we actually talking about?and where are they coming from? A couple of million is hardly worth the effort to bother with, 50-60 million? ya might have a problem..

Most reports show roughly 11-12 million.

Number of Illegal Immigrants in US Steady at 11.2M | CNSNews.com
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/24/us...5-million.html

The number gets greatly exaggerated, where they try and "extrapolate". In the illegal forum they throw around 50 million sometimes...with no idea how they get to that #.

Well they keep saying what 11-12 million. And they've said it so much it's become fact year after year after year.

Probably closer to 30-40 million if you ask me.

Fact is nobody knows.

I think those numbers are bogus.

How would they count who is illegal?

Many go undetected.
