The federal government is busy preparing for President Obama's illegal amnesty push that many experts believe will come right after the November elections. Part of the preparation involves Immigration and Customs Enforcement purchasing up to 34 million green card and work permits to be distributed over a 5 year period.
The sheer volume of this order reveals the reality that the federal government knows the 11 million estimate they have been repeating for years about the number of illegal aliens currently living in the country is a fabrication. The order by ICE estimates that up to 34 million will apply for work permits and/or green cards. This can only mean one thing, the actual number of illegal aliens in the country is likely well about 34 million and possibly closer to the 50 million range.
Why can we make such assumptions? Because it is highly unlikely all illegals will "come out of the shadows" as the left likes to put it, especially if the issuance of a green card and work permit is contingent on paying fines. We also know so-called dreamers have already been granted amnesty and would not be included in this number.
