Now They Are “Unauthorized Immigrants”

Well, I guess that is better then “undocumented immigrants,” since, apparently, everyone in the media, and some in the government, has documented all sorts of information on their lives. Pew Hispanic Center: A Portrait of Unauthorized Immigrants in the United States

Unauthorized immigrants living in the United States are more geographically dispersed than in the past and are more likely than either U.S. born residents or legal immigrants to live in a household with a spouse and children. In addition, a growing share of the children of unauthorized immigrant parents–73%–were born in this country and are U.S. citizens.

There’s a name for those children: anchor babies. Or, perhaps, if we use lefty lexicon, non-aborted legalization caucus members.

These are among the key findings of a new analysis by the Pew Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center, which builds on previous work estimating the size and growth of the U.S. unauthorized immigrant population. A 2008 report by the Center estimated that 11.9 million unauthorized immigrants lived in the United States; it concluded that the undocumented immigrant population grew rapidly from 1990 to 2006 but has since stabilized. In this new analysis, the Center estimates that the rapid growth of unauthorized immigrant workers also has halted; it finds that there were 8.3 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. labor force in March 2008.

Ah, good, a new analysis. Say, I wonder if they have ever heard of laws regarding being an accessory to a crime? How about ones called misprision, if they knew about illegals, excuse me, unauthorized immigrants, who have been involved with felonies.

About three-quarters (76%) of the nation’s unauthorized immigrants are Hispanic. The majority of undocumented immigrants (59%) are from Mexico. Significant regional sources of unauthorized immigrants include Asia (11%), Central America (11%), South America (7%), the Caribbean (4%) and the Middle East (less than 2%).

And the left wonders why Hispanic looking people might get profiled?

Meanwhile, it is rather amusing (among other adjectives) that they call us on the right extremists might get violent for being against “immigration” when stuff like this happens, and is not unusual

Campus police used pepper spray on student protesters angry over immigration issues who disrupted a speech by former Republican presidential candidate Tom Tancredo at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Hundreds of protesters denouncing Tancredo’s tough stances against illegal immigration gathered at Bingham Hall on Tuesday evening, shouting profanities at the former Colorado congressman, who tried to speak about his opposition to in-state tuition for unauthorized immigrants.

Tancredo left after a protester broke a window and police shut down the event. He had been invited by a student group that opposes mass immigration and multiculturalism.

Who’s the extremist, again?
