Border still porous; update the numbers

Success - Article sent! close

For a very long time now, the estimate of 11 million illegal immigrants having crossed our border has been the accepted number.

Our border was not and is not closed, and there is no evidence that the illegals have stopped coming. So, isn't it time that the number be updated?

In addition, I feel estimating the number is ridiculous because how does one count the number of illegals not seen crossing?
