    The early 1900's did not have the highest number of immigrants!

    Not only disturbing, it appears incorrect. It seems to show "one time amnesty" in 1990. The only one time amnesty I recall was in 1986..... just before you see that really sharp increase .... I think who ever made this graph is intentionally covering the 1986 amnesty with some misleading information. The result of that was a literal flood of people jumping the border.

    This chart is legal immigartion.

    That spike of people were already here and then made legal.

    It's misleading. It should be relative to population.

    I get that.

    But that spike you see there IS illegals made legal. And where that arrow points to that seems to be pointing to a mid 1990 date. It would be more accurate, I think, to have that pointer down at 1986, where that rise begins.

    And those graphs are even more disturbing. Few like to have serious conversations about population control but it has to be done. Most of our problems are rooted in over population, over consumption of resources.
