Who’s Right? Former Border Patrol Agents Challenge Number of Illegal Immigrants in U.S.

Former Border Patrol agents estimated that the number of illegal immigrants in the U.S. is nearly twice the estimate of 11 million by the government and other demographers, the Washington Times reports.

“The more likely figure is 18-20 million and rising daily,” Zack Taylor, chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, Inc., said in an open letter dated Sunday.

NAFBPO released its estimates as it continues to oppose a Senate bill that would grant legal status to some illegal immigrants, the Washington Times wrote.

Demographers have said illegal immigrants peaked at 12.4 million in 2007 before a precipitous drop.
