It's difficult to draw any conclusions as this is a tiny piece of the

border. The flow of illegal immigrants across this border is actually the lowest
in decades. There aren't many jobs to entice them. About the only jobs available
are in construction, meat-packing and agriculture, jobs that most other people
will no do, no matter how much rhetoric there is.

California has about 12% of the agricultural workers in the country. No other
state comes even close. 90% are Mexican and third are Mexican Indians. They make
it possible for you to eat tomatoes in big Macs at reasonable process.
otherwise, we would be paying $10 dollars for a burger with tomatoes from
Chile.

The Obama administration has actually deported more undocumented immigrants
in 3 years than Bush did in 8. The numbers actually approximate numbers during
the Great Depression years.

One also has to ask what percentage of citizens are of English, Irish,
Scottish, German, Italian descent and others. And after establishing that,
what's the point?

The recent growth in the Mexican population is no longer immigration (legal
or illegal), but through childbearing. Most people of northern European descent
are not having children. They are too wrapped up in consuming and
individualistic success.

And if you are really worried about competition, worry about the Chinese and
other Asian groups. They are quietly outperforming, out-earning, out-buying
every other group in this country.

From your quote.

Mexicans IN Mexico are following anglo whites in dropping down in family sizes to replacement numbers. China: their working age pop IN China is starting to go down in real numbers and they're getting old too.

There has been a great deal of debate on this. Many call it a completely fabricated lie by the liar in chief himself.

The Deportation Lie | National Review Online

"Removals generated by ICE’s Enforcement and Removals division, which is responsible for interior immigration enforcement, have decreased nearly 50 percent since June 2011. Vaughan says the administration has been inflating its deportation statistics by including a greater number of U.S. Border Patrol cases — illegal immigrants picked up at the border and subsequently referred to ICE — as part of its annual statistics."

These types of apprehensions were never recorded as official deportations in the past. Obama portraying himself as the deporter in chief also directly conflicts with his growing base.

Perhaps this point below should scare folks the most...

"Deportations specifically of illegal immigrants convicted of a crime — individuals the administration says it has prioritized for removal — are similarly down, almost 40 percent since June 2011, Vaughan found. And that decline has occurred despite a significant increase in the number of illegal immigrants referred to ICE after being arrested for crimes. “There are certainly enough illegal aliens out there, especially enough criminal illegal aliens, that their numbers should be going up, not down,” Vaughan says. “So they appear to be giving a lot of free passes to people who are a public-safety problem, beyond the fact that they are here illegally.

It's frightening to see what extremes this administration will go to in order to give a boost to the undocumented Hispanic population. Obama is willing to trade the safety of American citizens for the guarantee of future democrat votes. Republicans better scramble to find what luxury of ours they can trade away for the guarantee of future votes as well. Maybe they can boot us out of our houses so these illegals have a place to stay of their own?
