230,000 Koreans Illegally Staying in United States

By Kang Shin-who
Staff Reporter

Approximately 230,000 undocumented Koreans were residing in the United States as of January 2007, according to a report ``Illegal Alien Resident Population’’ by the U.S. Homeland Security. The number of illegal Koreans has decreased by some 20,000 from a year earlier, yet Korea was the 7th largest country with illegal aliens in America.

The U.S. has seen a growing number of illegal immigrants _ 11.8 million last year, up from 11.3 million in 2006 and 8.5 million in 2000.

By country, Mexico is the leading country of undocumented immigration, with seven million, or 59 percent of the illegal population.

El Salvador came next with 540,000, followed by Guatemala with 500,000, and the Philippines and China, each with 290,000.

Koreans made up 2 percent of the undocumented population. Brazil showed the biggest increase of illegal residents, an 89 percent jump, followed by India with 81 percent and Guatemala with 74 percent.

By state, California was the leading state for illegal residents, with 2.8 million, or 24 percent of the total, followed by Texas with 1.7 million and Florida with 1 million.

Mexico's own government admits that over 10% of it's population is El Norte, that's over 10 million people. The Mexican PEOPLE will tell you that it's 15-20 million.

DHS is absolutely BRAIN DEAD if they think we're buying the BS figures they're selling!

I've been reading/hearing 12 million for the last 10 years. Even Obama and McCain have no clue how many they are planning to grant amnesty.

It is never too soon to begin scouting out bridge underpasses that could serve as potential homes.

Unlike a certain population of illegals namely those from SOB, other illegal aliens of large population deliberately fly under the radar. There have always been Polish, Lituanian, Chinese and Irish illegal alien enclaves quietly living in and around the Chicago area. I bet even they are pi-ssed at the illegal aliens from SOB for nationally exposing the problem.
