Oooops! They’re not “coming, and coming, and coming” anymore

The number of immigrants in the U.S. illegally fell to 11 million since 2009, largely because of a drop-off in the number of Mexicans without legal status, according to a study released by Pew Research.

The report — using survey data from 2015 — showed the number of immigrants lacking legal status was 11.3 million in 2009. The number of Mexicans in the country illegally dropped to about 5.6 million from 6.4 million during the same six-year period.

“The numbers are not going up, and in fact, the numbers for Mexicans have been going down for almost a decade now,” said Jeffrey Passel, senior demographer at Pew Research Center in Washington, D.C. “And that is counter to a lot of the rhetoric you hear.”

Bad news for all you Mexican haters. You’ll have to find something else to focus your mindless racist hatred on.

  1. If you believe this story that the Mexicans stopped coming here starting 10 years ago, you’ve been smoking the same reefer that the author of this data was smoking. Go to any community in Kaly and say that with a a straight face as all you will hear in some stores is Spanish being spoken and the rudeness they display towards American citizens.
