America has a lot of immigrants, but the government doesn’t want you to know how many are legal versus illegal.
So they lump them all together.
It may surprise you to learn that America has a record 42.1 million legal and illegal immigrants in the United States, according to a new analysis of data from the U.S. Census Bureau released recently.
Want to guess under what president the surge has occurred?
Since the second quarter of 2011, an additional 4.1 million entered the county both legally and illegally, according to a report by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS).
That number includes the 1.7 million immigrants who entered just in the past year, of which 740,000 are Mexicans. It’s the largest single year increase since the year 2000.
The report goes on:

The immigrant population now totals more than 13.3 percent of the entire U.S. population — its largest share in 105 years.
The total Mexican immigration population in the U.S. was 12.1 million as of the second quarter of this year, its highest quarterly total.
Why the big increase? It’s the Liberals’ “browning” of America. As one former member of the Congressional Black Caucus put it confidentially,
“We need to knock the white man off his high horse, and Mexicans will help us do it.”
CIS cites “the significant cutbacks in enforcement in recent years, the permissive nature of the legal immigration system and improvements in the economy” as factors that have contributed to the surge.
There was very little immigration growth from 2007 to 2011, because there weren’t enough jobs. But now that welfare is easier to get than jobs, the numbers spiked. According to CIS, the growth in the last four years is about equal to the growth from 2000 through 2007.
“For the immigrant population to increase by one million means that significantly more than one million new immigrants must enter the country, because some immigrants already here return to their homeland each year and natural mortality totals 250,000 annually,” the Center wrote in its report.
We can only expect this number to continue to grow, as the Democrats try to get their candidate more uninformed voters.
