James Walsh keeps up his disdain for immigrants in his Oct. 28 Newsmax column, where he once again plays fast and loose with immigrant numbers.
Walsh once again insists that "estimates of illegal aliens in the United States range from 20 million to upwards of 36 million men, women, and children." Walsh doesn't offer evidence to back up these figures -- probably because most reputable researchers put the number at around 12 million.
And it wouldn't be a Walsh column without a swipe at those filthy immigrants:
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other public health institutions have traced ground zero for the H1N1-swine flu to Mexico, and illegal aliens coming across the border probably are bringing the virus with them. Illegal entry into the United States is not only an economic burden on U.S. taxpayers but also has been a public health issue all along.
Walsh concludes by insisting that because of said filthy immigrants, "Obamacare could contribute to the financial ruin of the Republic."
