Article

How Many Illegal Aliens?
Dan Stein of The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) writes "It is difficult to have an exact figure because the illegal nature of their presence prevents any enumeration, but the U.S. Census Bureau estimated 8.7 million illegal aliens were here in 2000, and immigration officials estimate that the illegal alien population grows by as many as 500,000 every year."

The Economic Impact Of Immigration
Angela M. Kelley of the Immigration Policy Center writes "Most studies claiming to calculate the net "costs" of immigration to the U.S. economy suffer from one or more fatal flaws."
