Regardless, I could care less where illegals come from.

An illegal is an illegal, a law breaker that should never be allowed in our country.

For the first time in more than a decade, Mexicans no longer make up the majority of immigrants staying in the U.S. illegally, according to new estimates by the Pew Research Center.

Although Mexicans still make up the largest group of unauthorized immigrants, numbers from Mexico have been on the decline since the Great Recession began in late 2007.

The number of unauthorized immigrants from other countries has been on the rise since the end of the recession, hitting an estimated 5.7 million in 2016. Immigrants from Central America and Asia largely from India and China are two of the main drivers of that growth.

Since we lost so many businesses/industries to Mexico and US dollars to the tune of $26 billion last year went to Mexico, they should be doing well enough to hold their population.

I think that has been known for a long time. Chinese and overstayed visa holders seems to be sweep under the rug by the MSM.

Not true...only VWPers do not get hearings. Those with b1/2, student visas, work visas all are eligible for hearings.
