For John, BLUF: We need to get a handle on immigration. Maybe after 1 January and the new Congress. Maybe. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Here is the sub-headline:
The population of illegal migrants is roughly 22 million, or twice the establishment estimate of 11 million, say three professors from Yale University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
From Breitbart, by Neil Munroe, 21 September 2018.
Here is the lede:
The shocking estimate will force establishment politicians and pro-migration advocates to recalculate the estimated impact of the huge illegal population on wages and salaries, on crime rates, welfare consumption, rental and real-estate prices, productivity rates, and the distribution of job-creating investment funds to coastal vs. heartland states.Well, so much for Breitbart as predictor of future action. I don't think this report moved the needle at all.
Maybe the Caravan from Central America will.
