Illegal Aliens Estimated in Illinois

525,000 is the number of illegal immigrants that something called the Pew Hispanic Center has come up with.

4.1% of the state’s population.

That’s up from 500,000 in 2007 and up from 200,000 in 1990.

Some of those who marched through Crystal Lake this summer in support of immigrant rights.

The size of the average congressional district in the next ten years will be 646,952, so Illinois might have lost two seats if it were not for our undocumented brethren.

“The number of children born to at least one unauthorized-immigrant parent in 2009 was 350,000 and they made up 8% of all U.S. births, essentially the same as a year earlier,” the study reports.

  1. Three-four years ago I was told that approximately 40% of the 40,000 Hispanics in McHenry County might be illegal. That number was based on a national estimate of 40% being in the USA illegally. So, 16,000 illegals in McHenry County.

    What is the impact of that number on schools, hospitals, medical services, law enforcement, community services (shelter, food)?

    Can this country, and this county, afford to ignore this problem any longer?

  2. I hope the majority of those marching are unemployed and lost their jobs because of illegals. Maybe that would knock some sense in their heads.

  3. And do you not believe that government officials and major companies in the united states do not advertise for these illegals to come work for them so that they can pay them illegal wages and treat them even more like dirt that us?

    Would you not do the same thing to feed your children if you were in their position?

    When did humans start “owning” parts of the earth?

    Is this not a “free” world?

    What makes you believe that you have more right than they, that you are allowed more access to resources and money?

    And please let me know if you would even APPLY for a job that most of those “illegals” work at.

  4. And you are fighting against these illegals taking legal American citizen’s jobs yet, you are hoping that your fellow citizens lost their jobs to them? That seems a little contradicting.
