Immigration is Biden Regime’s Achilles heel

July 29, 2021

The following article asks the question - which CAIRCO has already answered: How many illegal aliens really live in America? The author points out that the oft-repeated number of 11 million is outdated, invariant, and stale. The real number could be 22 million to 25 million or more illegal aliens who have snuck into America and evaded capture at our border.

Given the fact that the Biden regime is touting amnesty for some or all of these illegal aliens, the actual number of them is immensely significant.

Why the push for amnesty? The vast majority of them will vote for the Democrat party.

Immigration is Joe Biden’s Achilles heel, by Lionel Shriver, July 15, 2021:

... For years on end, I’ve read that the population of America’s ‘undocumented’ — a euphemism that seems to upbraid the receiving country’s bureaucrats for failing to issue its woefully overlooked residents the proper papers — is 11 million. With the artificial precision that often attends these unverifiable figures, which derive their authority from sheer repetition...

A trio of academics affiliated with MIT and Yale University set about trying to reproduce that oft-quoted statistic by other means. Their results were published in 2018....

Yet the full range of their model’s outputs is more astonishing still. Accepting, unlike most journalists, that their data contained a large degree of uncertainty, the authors ran their model with a variety of credible inputs literally a million times. The results within a 95 percent probability lay between 16 million and 29 million, with 22.1 million as the mean — or twice as many illegal immigrants as the Census Bureau figures imply....

Mind, that Yale/MIT model produced half a million results in excess of 22.1 million, with a multitude spitting out estimates in the vicinity of 35 million or more. That would be more than 10 percent of the total American population, which experientially sounds about right...

It matters how many illegal immigrants are truly living in the US, because Biden has ambitions to offer them all a de facto amnesty and a path to citizenship. Should the President get his way and, say, 35 million people rather than the expected 11 million emerge from the shadows to apply for legal status, the political backlash could be considerable...

To disguise the fact that immigration to the States is now a free-for-all, we’re sure to keep hearing about America’s imaginary '11 million undocumented immigrants', despite copious evidence that this farcically tiny figure is a lie...
