  • 1. Illegal Immigration in the U.S.A Anna Mongillo Coach Grigg 5/16/2011 5/16/2011
  • 2. Facts on Illegal Immigration
    • In the U.S, 72,000 illegals are apprehended for drug offenses each year.
    • There are 10-20 million illegal immigrants in the United States.
    • Over 25% of federal prisons are inhabited by illegal aliens.
    • The government has spent roughly $52 billion educating the children of illegals.
  • 3. More Facts on Illegal Immigration
    • Over 1.3 million illegal aliens per year move to the U.S.
    • 65 Americans become unemployed for every 100 illegals gaining a job.
    • Each year, illegal immigration costs the U.S. $113 billion.
    • Approximately 2/3 of fugitive felony warrants are for illegal aliens.
  • 4. Thesis
    • Illegal immigration in the United States is caused by a high gross state product, high personal income, and a high number of employed people.
  • 5.
    • Key: 2,209,000-60,000 immigrants
            • 56,000-19,000 immigrants
            • 16,000-less than 2,500 immigrants
  • 6.  
  • 7. Everywhere I travel throughout Eastern Washington, I hear from people demanding we do a better job of controlling our borders and reducing illegal immigration. -Cathy McMorris
  • 8. Cause #1: Gross State Product (GSP)
    • Gross State Product is the sum of a state’s economic output in one year.
    • States with a high GSP are attractive to people in places of low economic opportunity.
    • The top four states in GSP are California, Texas, New York, and Florida.
    • The lowest GSP in America is in Vermont,
    • with $26,400.
  • 9. Cause #1: Gross State Product (GSP) cont.
    • The highest GSP in America is in California, the state with the most illegal immigrants.
    • California’s GSP is $196,400,000.
    • States with a high gross state product indicate better-paying jobs.
    • The four lowest states in GSP are Vermont, North Dakota, Montana, and Wyoming.
  • 10.
    • Key: $1,936,400-$261,300
            • $259,700-$98,900
            • $89,600-$26,400
  • 11.  
  • 12. GSP + Illegal Immigration: Scatter Plot
  • 13.
    • “ In Arizona specifically, the Perryman Group estimates that the state would lose...$11.7 billion in gross state product...in the long run [due to illegal immigration].”
    • -Colin Gray
  • 14. Cause #2: Total Personal Income Per State
    • States with a high personal income include California, New York, Texas, and Florida.
    • California has a total personal income of $1,340,319.
    • States with a low personal income include Montana, South Dakota, Alaska, and Vermont.
    • Vermont has a total personal income of $18,473.
  • 15. Cause #2: Total Personal Income Per State (cont.)
    • A state with a high total personal income has many people with high-paying jobs.
    • Many people with high-paying jobs means less people are occupying the lower-end work.
    • This leads to more jobs in the lower-end of work, which is mostly manual labor.
    • These types of work attract illegal immigrants.
  • 16.
    • Key: $1,340,319-$186,293
            • $185,822-$69,415
            • $58,460-$18,473
  • 17.  
  • 18. Total Personal Income+Illegal Immigration: Scatter Plot
  • 19.
    • “ A large income is the best recipe for happiness I ever heard of.”
    • - Jane Austen
  • 20. Cause #3: Employment
    • Some of the most popular jobs require mostly manual labor and little education.
    • These jobs are the main types of work that illegal immigrants occupy.
    • Because those jobs are popular and don’t require education, many in the state become employed.
    • The states indicating the most employment are likely to have many of these job types.
  • 21. Cause #3: Employment (cont.)
    • The state of California has 14,687,000 employed people.
    • The state with the least employed people is Wyoming, with just 228,000.
    • The four highest ranking states in employment are California, Texas, Florida, and New York.
    • The four lowest ranking states are Delaware, North and South Dakota, and Vermont.
  • 22.
    • Key: 14,687,000-2,530,000 people
            • 2,494,000-1,035,000 people
            • 830,000-228,000 people
  • 23.  
  • 24. Employment+Illegal Immigration: Scatter Plot
  • 25.
    • “ As the number of available jobs has decreased in border states like Texas, cities halfway across America have begun to see an influx of illegal immigrants in search of employment.”
    • - Spencer Bachus
