Arizona tops the unenviable list: 65% of all immigrants here in violation of our law
Half of the nearly 3.5 million immigrants living in Texas are in the country illegally, the Center for Immigration Studies says in a report released today. According to the report, the majority are uneducated, unskilled workers.
Based on the latest Census Bureau data, the report said Texas has one of the fastest-growing immigrant populations of any state. It said that 50 percent of the state’s foreign-born population, or slightly more than 1.7 million people—are illegal immigrants. Only Arizona at 65 percent, North Carolina at 58 percent and Georgia at 53 percent had a higher proportion of illegal immigrants in their immigrant populations.
Under the provisions of the Fourteenth Amendment, the United States continues to grant birthright citizenship to the children born to those illegally in our country. We do this at our own peril.
