A stunning study from Yale University is shedding new light on the immigration chaos taking place along the United States’ southern border with Mexico; claiming the illegal immigration population of the US is possibly “triple” previous estimates.
According to the Washington Times, experts from the Ivy League institution now believe there are between 16 million and 30 million undocumented individuals currently living in the United States.
“The number of people in the country illegally has always been a touchy question, and is perhaps even more freighted now under President Trump,” writes the Times. “During the 2016 campaign Mr. Trump said the numbers could be as high as 30 million — drawing protests from fact-checkers who cited the traditional demographers.”
“Policy debates about the amount of resources to devote to this issue, and the merits of alternative policies, including deportation, amnesty, and border control, depend critically on estimates of the number of undocumented immigrants in the U.S., which sets the scale of the issue,” said the researchers.

IMMIGRATION INSANITY: Illegal Immigrant, 17, Pleads Guilty to QUADRUPLE MURDER in NY
An MS-13 gang member living in the United States illegally pleaded guilty to a quadruple murder in New York this week; admitting he carried out the vicious killings of four young men on Long Island last April.
“Josue Portillo, 17, but charged as an adult, pleaded guilty in federal court to racketeering charges and for his participation in the April 2017 murders of Justin Llivicura, Michael Lopez Banegas, Jefferson Villalobos and Jorge Tigre in the woods behind a Central Islip, N.Y., soccer field, prosecutors claim. He’s now facing up to life in prison when he is sentenced Jan. 10,” writes Fox News.
Portillo claims he plotted the killings with other MS-13 gang members over a local dispute; adding he lured his victims into the woods and killed them with machetes and other knives.
“The Eastern District, together with our partners on the FBI’s Long Island Gang Task Force, will never tire nor relent in our efforts to dismantle MS-13 and bring to justice their members who have no respect for human life,” U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue said in a statement.

IMMIGRATION INSANITY: MS-13 Member Charged in NY after Teen’s Body Found
An MS-13 gang member was charged Thursday with the murder of a teenager on Long Island, NY after the body was discovered nearly a year after the attack, reports Fox News.
Carlos Benitez-Hernandez, 21, was officially arraigned Thursday on second-degree murder charges related to the death of the unidentified teen.
Insiders close to the case said the youth was “horrifically and barbarically” murdered.
“Nassau County Police Department Det. Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick said in a Thursday news conference that authorities believe the motive for the killing is the ‘gang’s displeasure’ with the teen’s actions,” writes Fox News.
“It’s more gang’s displeasure with his actions within the group, or it was something that they felt disrespectful to them or a threat to them,” Fitzpatrick said.
Hernandez was already in federal custody over a pre-existing immigration issue at the time of his arraignment. The suspect pleaded not guilty to the murder charge.
