Like I said before,that number(11 mil.) is not accurate. I believe( because they are all over and continue to come) it's closer to 20 mil. if not more.

11 million seems really low, just a few years ago the government was talking about up to 24 million. Maybe the 11 million are the ones illegally working and the other 13 the ones sopping at the welfare teet and not working at anything more than making more Jackpot Babies to collect more welfare off of.

When I walk into a Walmart and see 99% Asian, Mexican, Indian, Somalian and and less than 1% white American or just English speaking Americans, I believe the number's are in the millions and many law makers haven't a clue. Yesterday, a Hondoran robbed a big lot's in Kearns Utah, and he was on a deportation hold, but he was captured by another illegal alien from Mexico that was pissed off because he pointed his gun at his wife. What the hell is happening to America??We the legal crown will never know who's who in this Country. It's a crying shame.

All one needs to do is look at the 1986 amnesty to know the U.S. government is lying though their teeth. 1.3 million illegals became 2.6 million. Since that time over 7 million have received amnesty. So double that 11 million.

Yes, with amnesty the new citizen can then bring over every family by blood or marriage and they get government benefits. That is why under reagan the roughly 3 million illegals given amnesty ballooned to almost 15 in two years. They all brought more from the old country and were given Social Security, housing, food stamps, and so on. The 11-20 million now will balloon into 30-40 million in just a few years as they bring more over to sop atthe public through.
Of course millions more illegal will keep crossing over and expect amnesty from another President later on down the road.
