The number of illegal immigrants in the United States may have dropped by more than 1 million over the last year, according to a report issued Wednesday.

The Center for Immigration Studies in Washington said it estimates that the number of illegal immigrants nationally was 11.2 million in May, down from a peak of 12.5 million in August 2007.

Its numbers are estimates, the center said, based on data collected monthly by the Census Bureau on the number of foreign-born adults living in the U.S. The latest such data is from May.

The estimates are also based on the assumption that the “overwhelming majority�? of immigrants in the U.S. illegally are Hispanics who are younger adults with relatively little education. That assumption, the report said, is based on “a large body of research.�?

I want to clear something up, I have said this before, on numerous occasions, but apparently some of those folks suffering from a lack of reading comprehension skills have either missed it, misunderstood it, or, choose to ignore it as a matter of convenience.

I am NOT, in ANY way, against LEGAL immigration, I am the grandson of an immigrant, a LEGAL immigrant, a man that became an American, swore his allegiance to America, paid his taxes, raised his family to be good Americans.

His sons served this nation in the military. Most of his grandchildren have served, or, are still serving this nation in the military. His great grandchildren are serving this nation either in the military, law enforcement or both.

Legal immigrants have made this nation what it is, the greatest nation on earth, and a true melting pot of people and ideologies.

My gripe is with those that seek to destroy this nation by their illegal status, their refusal to become Americans, those that swear their allegiance to Mexico while living here, making their living, sending money to Mexico, and in many cases, not even paying taxes in this nation.

Those that denigrate America while living off of the fruits of this great land are the ILLEGALS I am so vehemently set against, those that will rape this nation, take and take and take, and give NOTHING in return, those that place a tremendous burden on ALL us, you and me, the LEGAL tax paying citizens of this great nation, those of us of ALL colors, races, religions and beliefs.

Anyone that can’t understand this is NOT the well educated Republican Conservative they claim to be. In my opinion, they are nothing more than a faux Conservative, one that embraces the beliefs of the libber left, and although their posts, on their own sites say one thing, their accusations against many others, in the comments sections of other blogs, speaks volumes to the statement of FAUX Conservatism being a FACT!

Faux Conservatives and RINOs? Stirring up as much hate and discontent in the blogosphere as possible. A short translation you say?? Blog Trolls.
