Immigration Statistics
« on: May 03, 2010, 11:56:02 AM »

To help people with discussing and debating immigration topics (specifically Ian and Mark), here's some helpful statistics and sites to quickly point to when debating:

#'s of immigrants:

About half of all "illegal immigrants" come over legally, but stay once their visas are up. [source: wikipedia]

There are other ways to fraudulently immigrate to the U.S. which are common. (mail-order brides paid fake marriages; green card marriages where one spouse is tricking the other spouse into marriage for a green card, only to get a divorce (this one happened twice to my aunt  :roll:).  [source: wikipedia]

Illegal immigrant dispursement by state:
# 1    California:     2,209,000      
# 2      Texas:    1,041,000     
# 3      New York:    489,000     
# 4      Illinois:    432,000     
# 5      Florida:    337,000     
# 6      Arizona:    283,000     
# 7      Georgia:    228,000     
# 8      New Jersey:    221,000     
# 9      North Carolina:    206,000     
# 10      Colorado:    144,000     
[source: USCIS

The percentage of immigrants and natives who are college graduates is about the same.
<--# of immigrants/%of the population

Building a border wall without using illegal immigrants has been estimated to be an impossible task.

There is a phone application being developed that gives GPS directions to crossing the border. It may someday also point out food and water.
This "electronic civil disobedience" attempts to make the border crossing safer, but many immigrants still die of thirst and the elements when crossing from Mexico.
Good people disobey bad laws.
