USC: CALIFORNIA HOME TO 2.6 M UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS

Redwood City, Calif – As the Senate tackles immigration reform, a new report from a California University takes a closer look at what undocumented immigration looks like in that state.

U.S. experts often look to California when examining trends in undocumented immigration and with good reason.

The golden state is a common point of entry into the country and its diverse population offers a clearer picture of the life of undocumented immigrants.

A new study by the Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration at the University of Southern California found one quarter of the undocumented immigrant workforce in the U.S. lives in California and estimates that 7 percent of residents in the state are there illegally.

That translates to 2.6 million people.

In Los Angeles County alone, the country’s most populous county, the study found 1 in 10 residents there are undocumented.

The study even breaks down that group by ethnicity, showing that 63-percent of LA’s undocumented are Mexican, 22-percent come from
Central America, 8-percent are from the Philippines, China, and Korea.

Despite living in high levels of poverty, the study found the immigrants hard at work in
low-wage or seasonal jobs, like farming or retail, generating $31-billion USD in personal income.

The study’s authors hope it’s findings lend insight to lawmakers as they decide on the landmark immigration bill—and that they’ll weigh what comes next after reform passes—integration.

    so what was the point to bring out this article. to say what? 31 billion earned as personal income of the illegal aliens, short of accuracy how much taxes paid by these illegal aliens, compared to amount of taxpayers dollars spent on child tax credit, fraudulently filed by these illegal aliens, getting the average of $29,000.00 tax refunds, by claiming having 15 to 25 children, relative names living in mexico submitted to IRS as their children. the over 66 billion of taxpayers money spent on illegal aliens family members on welfare, section 08, food stamps, medicaid, public school subsidies, anchor babies, incarcerations, public defenders legal services and hovering expenses carried on top of the head of every illegal aliens demanding liabilities from america and its people, who all are saying get the heck out of america or shall the people which is the government put measures for these illegal aliens to self deport, some may not do, so the other measures already in the book of the INS laws, people must demand the federal government, the POTUS – deport, its the legal way, so why is the POTUS very, very much afraid to implement the INS laws.

    The undocumented immigrants cannot be on welfare, get foodstamps, be on section 8, etc… as you blatantly perpetuate the lies about them. They cannot get public assistance. They can however get help from religious charities because God’s laws are caring and compassionate and are universal for all people. State laws are created by human beings which serve their own localized ethnocentric ignorance and prejudices. Get it! Get it! Get it! Get it!

    @noz… u r such delutional to falsely accuse anyone who disagrees with your twisted, degrading, blatantly racist and dehumanizing comments as an illegal alien You are a pathological liar. Worse and a much greater offense is your hatred for human beings contained in your previous comments indicative of intrically evil acts. And for that Sir, the lake of fire and sulfuric acid is what awaits you in hell where you will be thrown and I shall not miss you one bit. Your master Satan whom yougraciously serve is thrilled to have your everlasting company as your punishment.

    All you care about that you so arrogantly and ignorantly been hamering to the readers is your empty nonsense brainless legality of invented human laws – state laws, which are fragile and changeable and noneternal alright. These laws are so miniscule and irrelevant that you cant even comprehend and accept the fact that it changes thru times alright. And now time is passing you by so quickly and the human laws are changing so rapidly you cant catch up because you want to hold on to your ignoramous mentality and stupidity as a person that you will do everything to the detriment of loosing your soul. It aint worth it alright! God is not fair. He is just alright. If you dont like how things are unfolding before your very eyes, pray to God and let him battle for you. Have trust in him alright. That is if you believe in Him? Do you believe in God noz? Alright! Get it!

      Anyone protecting their country and homes is racist ? you are so diluded , when you can never say anything productive except name calling then , geesh its time to question what kind of God you are adoring.

      Name calling seems to eliminate the need for factual support of one’s argument. Name calling is practically the definition of bigotry. Please Fix your own cess pool in your home . We don’t need advice for the likes of you. You are devoid of morals &/or decency, and you are also in serial violation of humanity.
