That's ten million too many, most of them being supported by California taxpayers.

It also gives California six (6) illegal votes in the electoral college for President as these illegals are counted on the census as population...

Of course not all of them. There had to have been some Professionals and Craftsmen. What I said was there was a lot of harvesting jobs available. If you grew up on a sharecropper's farm in say, Alabama, you may well catch a ride on a train to get to California. Kind of like how people from North England head for London. Of course going Hobo could get you killed by Train workers. Conductors just might throw you off the train while it was making speed.

When we buried my Great Grandpaw Erwin, my Aunt grabbed a Bible that was once bought by my Great Grandmother on earnings she made from picking cotton. You have to do a lot of picking to earn a dollar that way! Gr-Grandpaw Lonnie grew up on a farm and went on the road at 12 (his stepdad told him to milk cows!). He ended up in Texarkana. He did some barkeeping and a bit of cardplaying. He had a huge Mulberry tree in his front yard.

Nana stick to what you posted. MM ask how many are illegal? You said 10 million illegal. Your try at dodging speaks of IMMIGRANTS, not illegals.

No...TAG was answering my very specific question regarding California. There are over 22 million in America right now, and that's just every government agencys' best guess.

Pretty much everything south of San Francisco - which is a sanctuary city itself
- is mostly Hispanic these days.

BTW - "poverty" is Federally defined as annual income under $15,000. My military retirement check is far less than that, so all of you taxpaying suckers need to cough up for my benefits because I @#$%&*! sure earned them.

Do you have any sources to back that up? That would mean that one out of every 14 people in the US was an illegal immigrant. I don't think so. So what if CA is mainly Hispanic? The vast majority are legal immigrants. Did you read TAG's link in #22. It specifically included both legal and illegal immigrants. What's the matter, you don't like any immigrants?

Not when I retired in 1981.

Warrant 2 at 20 yr retirement in 1981:/ W-2 1306.50/month

Retirement pay = 50% of highest rate of base pay.

Very little COLA since then, thanks to our non-serving Congress.

I'm sure you're well above the poverty level when you include your prison pension and/or social security.
PS-1306x12=15672 + COLA. In the old math, that's above the poverty line.

What? Nonsense. There are currently 320 million people in America, give or take, and the Americano Federale government itself openly admits to as many as 20 million.

Quote:
The Tucson sector Border Patrol union local 2544 on the number of illegal aliens in our nation: "There are currently 15 to 20 million illegal aliens in this country by many estimates, but the real numbers could be much higher and the numbers increase every day because our borders are not secure (no matter what the politicians tell you - don't believe them for a second)". (Visit the local's website).
The last government "estimate" was in 2012, and it was 11 million-plus clear back then, when the government/Obama was deliberately low-balling the figures to cover up the size of the problem.

What "immigrants" are you talking about? I'm talking about illegals, you know, Federal criminals by law.

"Immigrants" are legally here, and you have just identified yourself as another Democrat Libby by deliberately trying to misidentify illegals as law abiding American citizens.
