The nine most terrifying words in the English language are "I'm from the government and I'm here to help." - Ronald Reagan

It's an invasion. And New Jersey is at the front of the front lines. Over the past 4 years we've added more illegal aliens than any other state. Please, hold your applause.
New Jersey saw the largest recent increase in the size of its unauthorized immigrant population of any state in the country, according to a report released Tuesday by the Pew Research Hispanic Trends Project.
(Click here to view the full study.)
New Jersey's unauthorized immigrants rose from 450,000 to 525,000 between 2009 and 2012, the report states, one of just seven states to see a rise in this segment of its population. The Garden State was followed by Florida, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Nebraska, and Idaho.
Unauthorized immigrants made up more than 8 percent of state's workforce in 2012, the fourth-highest such percentage in the country.
Most of the new arrivals are from India and Ecuador.
Why they're choosing our fair state isn't clear. But a massive influx of semi-skilled, low-income, non-English-speaking undocumented residents has got to be putting a strain on our already weakened economy. Not to mention the public assistance resources they undoubtedly require, and dare I say it, demand as their birthright.
Add in Dear Leader's
determination to unconstitutionally legitimize their disregard for our laws
and I can't help but wonder how America As We Knew It survives this assault.
