This Is Not Your Father's Immigration

By Mark Krikorian on June 5, 2008

A new report from a high-immigration outfit showing, yet again, that many of each year's new "legal" immigrants are actually illegal aliens using the system to launder their status. Nationwide, 42 percent of new legal permanent residents (green-card recipients) in 2003 were former illegal aliens, and in California, the figure was 52 percent. Among the new immigrants from Latin America and the Caribbean, 62 percent were former illegal aliens. More proof that legal and illegal immigration are two sides of the same coin.
