US to Add 1.5 Million Illegal Immigrants to Population in 2019, Projection Shows
United States projected to absorb another 1.5M illegal aliens this year
The United States is estimated to add a further 1.5 million illegal immigrants to the swelling population this year, projections for 2019 have shown.
Should the number of Catch and Release, border crossings, and visa overstays continue at current rates, the American population will absorb 1.5M illegals before the end of this year.
The controversial Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Catch and Release policy allows border crossers and illegal aliens to be readily released from federal custody into the interior of the U.S.
This year, DHS's Catch and Release is on target to release roughly 434,000 border crossers and illegal immigrants into the country by year-end.
According to Breitbart, this projection is based on current estimates that more than 36,000 border crossers and illegal aliens have been released from DHS custody every month since the beginning of the year.
Additionally, Princeton Policy Advisors researcher Steven Kopits projects that in 2019, there will be up to 500,000 illegal aliens at the southern border who successfully cross into the U.S. undetected by Border Patrol agents.
These are foreign nationals whom federal immigration officials are unaware of and are usually only deported after they commit a crime in the U.S.
Also, should visa overstay levels continue at the same pace as in Fiscal Year 2017, there could potentially be about 630,000 illegal aliens added to the U.S. population after overstaying their visas.
Center for Immigration Studies Director of Policy Jessica Vaughan told Breitbart News that experts predict there to be anywhere between 300,000 to 400,000 visa overstays this year.
These projections put the number of illegal aliens added to the U.S. population at around one to 1.5 million, on top of the 11 to 22 million illegal aliens who are already living across the country.
This finding does not factor in the illegal aliens who will be deported, die over the next year, or leave the U.S. of their own will.
As DHS data has revealed, once border crossers and illegal aliens are released into the country, the overwhelming majority are never deported.
Meanwhile, U.S. taxpayers are crippled with the burden of absorbing the 11 to 22 million-strong illegal population.
In terms of healthcare costs, illegal aliens and their U.S.-born child cost the American taxpayers about $17 billion a year.
Annual illegal immigration costs American taxpayers $116 billion.
The nation’s Washington, DC-imposed mass legal and illegal immigration policy — whereby at least 1.5 million unskilled foreign nationals are admitted to the U.S. every year — is a boon to corporate executives, Wall Street, big business, and multinational conglomerates, as America’s working and middle class have their wealth redistributed to the country’s top earners through wage stagnation.
Research by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has discovered that immigration to the country shifts about $500 billion in wages away from working and middle-class Americans toward new arrivals and economic elites.
Nancy Pelosi's Democrats, meanwhile, are pushing for illegal immigrants to be awarded voting rights in the US, claiming migrants “make America more American,” and we should not be “suppressing the vote of our newcomers.”
Democratic House Speaker Pelosi declared that immigrants entering the US should be accredited with adding to the "constant reinvigoration" of American families while speaking at a news conference on voting rights in Austin, Texas.
"When we talk about newcomers, we have to recognize the constant reinvigoration of America that they are, that we all have been – our families," Pelosi argued.
"And these newcomers make America more American.
"And we want them, when they come here, to be fully part of our system.
"And that means not suppressing the vote of our newcomers to America.”
