The job of putting illegal immigrants behind bars has become a big business for the private prison industry. Due to the vast numbers of these illegals being incarcerated, these big prison corporations have become dependent upon this revenue stream, which has in fact kept many of the largest of these in operation.
Currently the federal government is spending around $2 billion a year keeping around 50% of the 400,000 illegal immigrants in prison housed in private prison facilities. The federal government has also stated that making use of these private prisons to house these illegals isn’t necessarily a cheaper option, although that is one of the biggest reasons why these prison facilities were privatized.

A report released recently showed that Asian immigrants have actually surpassed that of the Hispanics in the United States as the largest group of new immigrants.
According to Pew, Asian immigrants only made up 19 percent of the new immigrant population in the year 2000, and in the year 2010 grew dramatically to 36%. In contrast, the new immigrant percentage of Hispanics in 2000 was at 59% and then fell to 31% in the year 2010.
When government data was combined with independent polling data, the total numbers are still quite uneven, as only 11% of the total illegals living in America are of Asian descent, and around 75% are made up of Hispanic illegals. Read the rest of this entry
Dealing with our illegal alien problem has been a large problem for our country. Out of 307 million people in America 11.1 million are illegally in the country. Some people think that illegal immigrants should be granted full amnesty without conditions. Others believe that they should be given amnesty as long as they abide by our laws and try to get citizenship. Still others think that all the illegal aliens should be deported immediately. As citizens of America we need to be informed of the statistics and issues surrounding illegal immigrants.
Illegal aliens come into the United States from several different places for different reasons. Currently about 60% of the illegal immigrants come from Mexico (“Fox News”) The Latin American countries represent 23% of the total and 5% come from Canada and Europe. (Passel, Capps, and Fix) Most of these people come into America seeking economic opportunities or free health care. Some sneak into our country specifically to commit crimes.

The statistics on the left margin of your website are very mis-leading, even untrue, and it is un-Biblical to spread false facts, “Thou shall not bare false witness against thy neighbor.”
Every single illegal immigrant in every county in the US pays the EXACT same property tax (millage rate) on their living space as those who are legal. Every tax commission in every US county makes no difference in collecting property taxes on rental units of apartments and houses, as opposed to those who own the property. Property taxes for these people are paid out of their monthly rental fees (at the end of the year) paid to landlords or a mortgage holder. No exceptions, except for church parsonages.
Property taxes pay for local schools, hospitals and local government funding. Every undocumented Hispanic family contributes! In addition, there are not two lines at department stores, one for legals to pay sales taxes, and one for non-legals to skip paying sales taxes. These sales taxes are paid equally by all. Many illegal workers do indeed pay state income taxes, federal taxes, Medicare and Social Security contributions…72 billion dollars last year alone. They do this using a Federal nine digit number called an ITIN. This process allows illegal America workers to pay all the same taxes as you and I pay. Read the rest of this entry
Illegal immigration has been a part of the American landscape for many decades. While most of us are familiar with illegal immigration from residents of Mexico who cross the Rio Grande and our southern border to find work and homes within the US, there are other means of illegal immigration that includes individuals who let work or school visas expire, but stay within our borders. Such illegal immigration tactics are quite common.
