Immigration at a Glance

From the Miami Herald:

• At least 6.3 million unauthorized workers were employed in March 2004, composing 4.3 percent of the civilian labor force.

• While 3 percent of them were employed in agriculture, 33 percent had jobs in service industries, 16 percent in construction and extractive occupations and 17 percent in production, installation and repair.

• In recent years, some 700,000 unauthorized migrants have arrived annually, compared with about 610,000 legal immigrants.

• The unauthorized population now is 11 million.

Hi,

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.

Melissa K. W.
