REPORT: Immigration to U.S. Continues to SKYROCKET

Per the Center for Immigration Studies, (CIS)the number of total immigrants entering the country is sky-rocketing. New data collected by the Census Bureau shows that 3.1 million new immigrants (legal and illegal) settled in the country in the two-year period of 2014 and 2015, or more than 1.5 million annually.

This CIS  analysis of newly released data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS) includes include new green card holders (permanent residents); long-term “temporary” visitors who often stay permanently, such as guest workers and foreign students; and of course new illegal immigrants. What you may find surprising is that the vast majority of these immigrants (between 66% and 75%) are legal.

Legal immigrants are almost as much of an issue as illegal immigrants and sadly we have to stop illegal immigration and cut legal immigration way back.  Now before you start calling me names like xenophobe or racist, please keep reading and then decide.
