Land For Sale - Cheap!

In Mexico, and plenty of other places. It will be soon, anyway, because Sen. Jeff Sessions warns us:

Immigration legislation pending in the U.S. Senate would increase the number of legal immigrants by at least 79 million and possibly as much as 217 million over the next 20 years,

Lets assume the larger number is accurate, and work our way South. Mexico has a population of 107 million; Guatemala 12 million; Belize a quarter million; and Honduras 7.5 million. That is what, about 127 million? So where are the other 90 million coming from?

Lets look north. Canada's population is 33 million, so that gets us to 160; we still need another 57 million people.

Lets see, who has that many? Oh yeah, Italy has 58 million people.

In sum, according to Jeff Sessions, the latest immigration bill will cause the entire populations of Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, Canada, and Italy to leave their country and enter the United States.

Good to know our Senator is making decisions based on facts and reason, rather than passions and nativism.
