Birdsong has learned from a report in the New York Post that there has been an 11% decline in the number of illegal immigrants in the United States from last August, 2007. Last August there were allegedly 12.5 million illegal immigrants in the country. This August there are only 11.2 million. These statistics are provided from the Center for Immigration Studies.
Supposedly, workplace raids and deportations over the last year have led to the decline.
Birdsong believes that the general decline in our economy and the lack of building construction jobs may well be a greater reason that there is such a decline…if there is such a decline.
Birdsong would like to hear your thoughts on this.
