Back in January, in White House Suppresses Immigration Stats I reported how the White House was suppressing the 2014 immigration stats until after the election. To my surprise, I was pretty much the only one complaining. Not even the Trump crowd called on the president to release the stats.
And the vast bulk of the stats have still not been released. However, DHS has published a smaller report with the most-important numbers. According to the “flow report” another 1,016,518 legal immigrants were admitted in 2014, with the bulk of them taking up residence in New York City, Los Angeles, and Miami.
In case you don’t know, this level of legal immigration is nearly triple our historic average (see my updated charts here). Did we have a million extra jobs laying around for these new citizens? Well, with the black unemployment rate still way up at 8.8%, I would say no. Not to mention that the Los Angeles zombie hoard is still rapidly expanding, even after the city declared an emergency back in September.
Now that the big number has been released, I’m wondering what else could be in the 2014 Yearbook of Immigration Statistics that the White House doesn’t want out before the election. Perhaps the “known terrorist” quota was raised?
In any case, Donald Trump notwithstanding, the level of legal immigration into the USA is still the most taboo subject in the corporate-owned media, and the corporate-sponsored media. Even Breitbart barely mentions it. Amazing, no?
