You knew it all along! Illegal alien population is twice as high as the oft reported 11 million

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 22, 2018

The Leftwing media and talking heads have been using a number of 11 million illegals in the US for at least a decade, but commonsense told you it was higher.

In June thousands turned out in Washington DC in support of those crossing our borders illegally thus encouraging even more illegal crossings.

 

Now some ‘smart people’ at Yale and MIT actually crunched a few numbers and much to their chagrin (because they went in to the study assuming the number was lower than 11 million) are reporting it is a whopping 22 million!

(By the way, refugees that we bring to the US are legal aliens, but the hundreds of thousands coming across borders as asylum seekers—wannabe refugees—were, we presume, included in the 22 million because they are not legally here until they have been granted asylum!)

Here is Neil Munro writing at Breitbart:

The population of illegal migrants is roughly 22 million, or twice the establishment estimate of 11 million, say three professors from Yale University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The shocking estimate will force establishment politicians and pro-migration advocates to recalculate the estimated impact of the huge illegal population on wages and salaries, on crime rates, welfare consumption, rental and real-estate prices, productivity rates, and the distribution of job-creating investment funds to coastal vs. heartland states.

Build the Wall!

The higher illegal population estimate helps explain why Americans’ wages and salaries have risen so little amid apparently record-low unemployment rates, and it also undercuts companies’ loud demands for yet more immigration of foreign workers, consumers, and renters.

The population estimate also raises the political and economic stakes of any amnesty legislation. In 2014, public opposition blocked the bipartisan, establishment, media-boosted Gang of Eight bill, which claimed to offer an amnesty to just 11 million migrants. Currently, advocates for a ‘Dream Act’ amnesty claim it will provide green cards to roughly 3 million sons and daughters of illegal immigrants.

The new estimate also bolsters President Donald Trump’s demand that reluctant GOP and hostile Democratic legislators fund a border wall.

[….]

The academics expected their techniques to show the population is smaller than the consensus estimate of 11.3 million. “Our original idea was just to do a sanity check on the existing number,” said Edward Kaplan, operations research professor at Yale. “Instead of a number which was smaller, we got a number that was 50 percent higher. That caused us to scratch our heads.”

These are the math geniuses, but isn’t it 100% more if 11 million is now 22 million?  (I’m math impaired, so let me know!).

Next we need to figure out how many are in each state!

  1. Hard to believe some Ivy League Globalist geek, so desirous of impressing us with his expertise, would be so stupid as to blatantly downplay his own results by 50%, and claim an obvious DOUBLING of the statistic was only a 50% increase!!!! Shows how instinctive and autonomic lying is among liberals. On the other hand, Americans have always had way, way, way too much respect for the Ivy League schools and their factory products: mostly foreign (largely Asian) and Affirmative Action students trained to be anti-american Liberal Globalists—which isn’t hard since so many of them are foreign anyway. Ivy League and other elite universities today don’t even bother to pretend they’re working for America’s benefit anymore: they’re bought and paid for, literally, by the world at large, and that’s who they all seek to benefit, at America’s expense.

    And everyone must accept that even this more realistic number is still just an educated guess. Fact is, NO ONE actually knows how many illegal aliens, asylees, VISA overstays, are in our country. We do know they are multiplying through their anchor babies by close to half a million annually. We also know that probably half or more of legal immigrants cause us the same problems, issues and horrific costs as do the illegal aliens. And we SHOULD know that adding over 2 million such strangers to our nation every year simply cannot be sustained without losing our country, without our country failing, without these people changing the USA into the very type of nation they call home.

    ” (because they went in to the study assuming the number was lower than 11 million) ” more likely is they did the study expressly to prove how low the numbers were to then use as a cudgel against any reduction in inflow. Much like the Harvard professor Robert Putnam’s lengthy study on diversity and its effect on social cohesion which resulted in absolute proof that diversity is our WEAKNESS. This caused the SJW Putnam to sit on his study results until outside pressures forced the release. Still, to this day, you rarely hear anything about Putnam’s study which damns diversity and when you do it is often only the MSM citing Putnam’s subsequent subjective speculations as to how, in some far away multicultural mecca, we may yet have perfected their “multicult” utopia. https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/robert-putnam-diversity-research-distorted-putnam/

      Thanks, we have had a report on Putman’s work posted at the top of RRW since we began in 2007. It is in the ‘Diversity’ button at the top of RRW. It is a report by John Leo.
