LM: I don’t have an issue with legal immigration, although, even that can and is being abused. Presently, in the software industry, globalist corporations (Apple, Google, various Financial Houses, etc. ) choose from an unlimited supply of cheap programming labor from East Asia and Asia. This cheap labor replaces older U.S. workers, even those originally of East Asian and Asian decent that have become naturalized citizens. This is a great boon for the globalist corporations, not so much for the U.S. and Asian person and their families who are actually doing the work.
I do have a problem with open borders and its potential results. All one need do, is think a bit of the results of millions of people living and working in the U.S. “unknown” to Local, State and Federal governments.
What are the impacts of this migration on the people already living here?
What real protections are afforded these migrants if they live unknown?
Could a criminal element use this migration as cover for their illicit activities?
And on and on…
In the end, it’s really not good for those living in the U.S. and it’s not good for the migrants.
But it’s good for someone …. Wonder who? Think!
As Pew Research Center clearly demonstrates, Boston has at least, 180,000 people living in the city unknown and unvetted from undetermined parts of the globe.
It’s comical in some ways and in others, not so much.
Mayor Walsh, I wonder how funny the people of Boston, footing the city expenses, think it is.
When your government becomes this corrupted, what is one to do?
20 metro areas are home to six-in-ten unauthorized immigrants in U.S.
Most of the United States’ 11.1 million unauthorized immigrants live in just 20 major metropolitan areas, with the largest populations in New York, Los Angeles and Houston, according to new Pew Research Center estimates based on government data.
The analysis shows that the nation’s unauthorized immigrant population is highly concentrated, more so than the U.S. population overall. In 2014, the 20 metro areas with most unauthorized immigrants were home to 6.8 million of them, or 61% of the estimated nationwide total. By contrast, only 36% of the total U.S. population lived in those metro areas.
But the analysis also shows that unauthorized immigrants tend to live where other immigrants live. Among lawful immigrants – including naturalized citizens and noncitizens – 65% lived in those top metros.
By far the biggest unauthorized immigrant populations were in the New York and Los Angeles metro areas (1.2 million and 1 million, respectively). No other metro area approached a million. Among the top 20 areas, the smallest unauthorized immigrant populations included Orlando (110,000) and Austin (100,000).
