This resource helped me get many facts in for my essay and especially for my intro . i learned many things like one of the facts that i learned The illegal immigrant population grew by 27% between 2000 and 2009, according to the Department of Homeland Security. another fact that i learned was Twenty-four percent of illegal immigrants reside in California; 16% reside in Texas. they reside in texas because texas is close to mexico and many people don't want to travel any farther since they might get caught so they stay in texas .


One fact i learned was Another growing immigrant group experiencing an upsurge in hate crime, largely as a result of Middle East crises and the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, are people of Arab descent. Often they are blamed for incidents to which they have no connection. The hate crimes following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which included murder and beatings, were directed at Arabs solely because they shared or were perceived as sharing the national background of the hijackers responsible for attacking the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

One fact i disagreed with was that immigrants is the reason why there is so much hate and how the it made the united states a bad place when is didnt .because 90 percent of the united states is made up by the immigrants
