Uno de cada ocho
Según estudio, uno de cada ocho residentes en Estados Unidos es inmigrante, la cantidad más elevada de los últimos 80 años...
The Center for Immigration Studies, a right-leaning DC thinktank, painted a fairly dystopic view. To the two of you sweethearts still hanging on to your fearless national leader, it can't be good for you that both immigration and illegal immigration has climbed over these past seven years to heights unseen in modern times.
USA Today's predictably droll version is here. It says that the study concludes that undereducated immigrants hurt the country. What sounds reactionary in Los Angeles sounds believable elsewhere.
The nation's lone remaining serious fishwrap of record says that:
Immigration over the past seven years was the highest for any seven-year period in American history, bringing 10.3 million new immigrants, more than half of them without legal status, according to an analysis of census data released today by the Center for Immigration Studies in Washington.One in eight people living in the United States is an immigrant, the survey found, for a total of 37.9 million people — the highest level since the 1920s.
Boldface mine. If this is considered a "problem" for most of the rest of the country---wouldn't it stand to figure that it's a matter of considerable interest for LA? Just wondering out loud.
