And I for One Welcome Our New Overlords!

NORTH COUNTY — According to a new study, an estimated 272,000 illegal immigrants are living in San Diego, Imperial and southern Riverside counties, a figure that translates to nearly 7 percent of the region’s 4 million residents.

While the percentage of illegal immigrants remained in the single digits, their numbers are rising rapidly, according to the study.

The number of illegal immigrants living in San Diego and Imperial counties rose 38 percent; in southern Riverside County, the number rose 18 percent between 2000 and 2005, according to the study commissioned by the American Immigration Law Foundation, a nonprofit in Washington that supports legal immigration.

The findings released last week showed that about 69,000 new illegal immigrants have moved into the region since 2000.
The GuardDog thinks these figures are seriously lowballed. Now check this out...
While the local increase is significant, the numbers are even more dramatic in other parts of the nation, if the findings are accurate. Of the country’s 435 congressional districts, 107 saw their illegal immigrant population double, according to the study.
Nope, no problem here folks, move along, nothing to see.

Cuz we're getting a fence and pony and a sugary treat! Yay!
