THAT LAW-ABIDING WHITE IMMIGRANT YOU LIKE AT WORK...:

For 7th Consecutive Year, Visa Overstays Exceeded Illegal Border Crossings (Richard Gonzales, 1/16/19, NPR)

As the Trump administration demands funding for a border wall to stop illegal immigration, a new study finds that for the seventh consecutive year, visa overstays far exceeded unauthorized border crossings.

The report released Wednesday by the Center for Migration Studies of New York finds that from 2016-2017, visa overstayers accounted for 62 percent of the newly undocumented, while 38 percent had crossed a border illegally.

"It is clear from our research that persons who overstay their visas add to the US undocumented population at a higher rate than border crossers. This is not a blip, but a trend which has become the norm," said Donald Kerwin, CMS's executive director in a statement.

...is a wetback too.
