I believe there was a topic already started with this same title (a couple posts down), quoting the same "Examiner" article, where I shredded the notion that legal and illegal immigration "is at an all-time high"...

But I'll bite: What numbers and percentage of Hispanics do you believe are illegal aliens?...

Mexicans make up 60% of illegal immigrants in this country. 20% of other Latinos/Hispanics make up the next largest portion. No one knows the total number of illegal immigrants in this country for sure but the guestimate years ago was around 12 million. Do the math. The last census says there are 50 million Hispanics in this country and that includes those here illegally. So assuming that the 12 million total illegal immigrants is an accurate number there would be more Hispanics here legally than illegally. Of course some or many here legally aka citizens are so because of their illegal parents giving birth to them on our soil.
