You are making up numbers.
The ***US** goverment puts it at 11 million.
I am sure the voices in your head say otherwise, bigot.
When is the last time you heard anything but lies from the US government? When is the last time you heard anything even resembling the truth come out of Obama's mouth?

The fact is, fifteen years ago the official government estimate for the number of illegal aliens in the US was 12 million, which most people thought was a low estimate then.

There are most likely more than 30 million illegal aliens in the country.

But, I've got an idea. Let's count them.
Give every illegal alien working a H1b work visa, then just count the visa applications.
Then, deport every illegal alien not working.
Then, cut off all welfare.
Then, the so-called "poverty" problem and illegal alien problem will be automatically fixed because those getting welfare will have to take the jobs the illegal aliens come here to do because the government pays people to not do the work they are doing.

Now, what's wrong with that solution?

I'm guessing you really hate the way Obama is having the Muslim Brotherhood in the White House every day.
It is disgusting, isn't it?

So when you told us that there were 50 million yesterday, you were lying again.

Which lie are you going with?

I guess five times the lie didn't fly so you are trying three times the lie?

PS: More undocumented workers are leaving the country then arriving. That means: what was not quite 12 million two years ago is fewer today.

The majority of people receiving welfare are white people, honey.

It's bound to upset members of your family, you better think it out.

I have never said 50 million illegal aliens. I have always said 30 million.
But, if you count the legal aliens, there will be 50 million aliens put under the authority of Janet Napolitano with the so-called "immigration" so-called "reform" bill.

So, why is it we see only illegal aliens walking into the United States on the video cameras, and not walking back to Mexico, dufus.

You have.

30 million. 50 million. 300 million. A billion.

Made up numbers mean nothing.

There are less than 12 million undocumented aliens in this country.

They pick the food you eat every day. They clean the chickens you eat every day. They do the the jobs Americans don't and won't do.

5 years???? No, we have been moving in reverse since Reagan; over 30 years. Sometimes we move in reverse faster like with bush jr and sometimes a bit slower in reverse like with Clinton. We need to stop allowing right wingers to control the government. We have to have politicians who will support the people instead of just the rich and corporations.

We have been getting Axed by the far right for way too long. They have turned the land of the free into a far right fascist utopia. The rich get everything, the people can barely survive.

Fifteen years ago the (low) official government estimate was 12 million illegal aliens here. Kind of hard to get from 12 million to 11 million with a (low) government estimate of half a million new illegal aliens coming here each year.
