On Sunday a California newspaper columnist described how the “State lurches forward on immigration reform.” “Twenty-one years ago, California voters passed Proposition 187, which sought to deny public benefits to illegal immigrants.” The courts voided that law, uncontrolled immigration has continued, and California has gone from Ronald Reagan’s GOP base to a one-party state where …

The Obama Administration claims that it cut back on enforcement in general in order to focus on deporting illegal aliens criminals who pose a danger to public safety. But since the administration took office, the percentage of these criminals in relation to all deportations has only risen from 56 percent to 59 percent. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says that Obama’s deportation policies are too harsh.

Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) found that employment of immigrants increased by 14,000 in September. Employment of native-born Americans declined by 262,000. The BLS also found that a record number of 94.6 million (ages 16 and over) were not in the labor force. Many in that total are retired or not interested in finding work. But it also includes many people who would like to work, but have given up looking for a job due to discouragement. They are not counted in the official unemployment figure.

Between 2009 and 2013 between 1.5 and 1.7 million illegal aliens settled in the United States, according to the Center for Migration Studies and the Pew Research Center. Since 2013, reports the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS,) an additional 790,000 have joined them, thus making a making a total of 2.5 new arrivals million since 2009. Nevertheless, the total in the country between 2009 and 2015 has stayed in the range of between 11 and 12 million. The reason, CIS explains, is that a decline of illegal aliens numbers has more or less offset the increase. That decline is the consequence of three factors: illegal returning home, their change of status to legal residency, and their natural mortality.
CIS concludes that illegal immigration is far from under control, and that if it were stopped, we would see a significant reduction in the total illegal population.
