I do not believe massaged statistics.

My own eyes and experience shows me, without doubt, that Texas is becoming Mexican.

i think you're supposed to ignore that, and focus on the OP's tiny data Windows instead.

Of what relevance is this? You are babbling again.

And much of the southwest mostly due to illegal immigration. It is unacceptable and unlawful and is changing our country's demographics, culture and language to be like Mexico.

It's also about the huge numbers of illegals that the article acknowledges.
There has been an increase in 2015 as well.

Agreed and HOW! The ONLY reason mexico gets away with it is because most Mexicans are some kind of Christian. IF it was Muslims we're talking about; that wall would've been built almost 50 years ago AND it'd be guarded by armed troops with orders to stop anybody trying to cross illegally by any means necessary.

And there are more people coming from China and India than from Mexico. I'd be more concerned about them since they are more likely to take middle class jobs than Mexicans.

What Trump Doesn

Pew’s Ana González-Barrera recently estimated that the number of illegal Mexicans in the U.S. shot up to 6.9 million in 2007 from 4.5 million in 2000. Then the Great Recession hit, the job market tanked, the labor flow ebbed and some one million Mexican migrants returned home between 2009 and 2014—more than the number of Mexicans coming here.

The result, says Ms. González-Barrera, is that “the net flow from Mexico to the U.S. is now negative, as return migration of Mexican nationals and their children is now higher than migration of Mexicans heading to the U.S.” She estimates that there were 140,000 fewer Mexicans living in the U.S. in 2014 compared with 2009.


Mr. Trump may need a new bęte noire. The Census Bureau reported in 2013 that immigration from China and India was higher than from Mexico. “The new prominence of Asian migration,” Muzaffar Chishti and Faye Hipsman of the Migration Policy Institute wrote in May, “may herald a significant and long-term transition in the demographics of future U.S. immigration.”
As far as Trump is discussing, it's about the illegals who come here for our welfare. Not about immigration. Imo we should close the borders up to EVERYONE for now and take care of American citizens.
