Don’t be driven by fear. Especially not by false fears drummed up by propagandists.

The number of undocumented immigrants from Mexico has been declining, in absolute population, not just the number entering. The total number of undocumented immigrants residing in the US has plateaued. 40% of undocumented immigrants enter legally and overstay their visa.
