Double Standard???????

According to the Asian American Justice Center Hispanics don't make up as large a group for illegal immigration as the Asian Americans do.
In fact regarding immigration 40 percent of immigrants in the US are Asian American.
Furthermore 1.5 million of these individuals have used illegal immigration to reach the US. Also regarding immigration 60 percent of the Asian Americans in the community are foreign born.

So what's the point? If those facts are true, which is doubtful, are you saying we should wait until we have a higher % of illegals from the south before taking action? Original post makes no sense. More spin by the haters.

This analysis is crap. The DHS says close to 90% of illegal immigrants are of Latin American origin (Puerto Ricans and Cubans), cannot reside in the U.S. illegally as they have citizenship, and automatically instated citizenship respectively.

Asians aren't even mentioned in DHS statistics.

How can Asian Americans be illegal immigrants? Aren't they, by the very categorization, well Americans?

Now, do Asians make up a large percentage of LEGAL immigrants?

Yes, they do.

Informational link from the Census Bureau regarding foreign born legal immigrants to the United States 2008.

That is my question as well. If they are Asian-Americans, they are NOT illegal immigrants.

Notice how handily the poster switches from "illegal immigration" to just "immigration" and back, to try to give the impression that the big numbers apply to illegal immigrants when they actually don't?

If he were interested in telling the truth, he wouldn't resort to such fakery and sleight of hand.

In fact, if he were interested in telling the truth, he would be pointing out that HIS OWN STATISTICS prove that far more Hispanics are illegal immigrants, than Asians.

Clearly, telling the truth is what he wants to avoid.

umm how the heck can puerto ricans be illegal aliens? Everyone born in puerto rico is an American. Do you mean that illegals use puerto rico as a gateway to come too the US?
