Most Illegal Immigrants Live In America's Metropolitan Areas

Tyler Durden's picture

Having exposed $27 Billion reasons why a number of America's city officials are up in arms over President Trump's sanctuary city defunding decision, we thought it worth investigating just where the most illegal (or undocumented or unauthorized - pick your politically correct term) immigrants reside in America.

Across America, there are over 300 governmental jurisdictions claiming "sanctuary status." Of those governments, there are 106 cities, while the rest are states, counties or other units of government.

The new U.S. administration wants to overhaul America’s migration system, cracking down on undocumented migrants. As Statista's Dyfed Loeche reports, in total there are an estimated 11.1 million unauthorized migrants in the U.S. of which some 6.75 million took refuge in the big metropolitan areas, according to data collected by the Pew Research Center. Some of these metro areas have so-called sanctuary cities at their center.

You will find more statistics at Statista

Under Trump’s order, mayors defending their sanctuary city status are essentially imposing a defiance tax on local residents. On average, this tax amounts to $500 per man, woman and child. Major cities like Washington, D.C., New York and Chicago have the most to lose, and nearly $27 billion is at stake across the country.

The threat of losing nearly $27 billion in federal funding seems to be having an effect on some cities. In fact, Miami already reversed their sanctuary city policy.

I made up my mind, I am going to move to Coeur D Alene, ID and get away from all of these people.

Spend some time there first, if you haven't already.  Beautiful in the summer.  Very cold right now (I was just there).  There is quite a bit of meth there and Spokane is an epic shithole.  You would probably like AZ or MT better.

BTW, weren't the founding fathers of the US illegal immigrants and/or children of illegal immigrants?

Funnily enough most people I've met who are concerned about man made climate change also tell me how great South East asia is not caring one bit about the amount of fuel planes use. The modern "left" (calling them left is, in my opinion, an insult to those who fought for workers rights) don't follow any logic they believe in a mismatch of conflicting policies.

Another example is their support of gay rights and islam. Two completely opposed ideas.

How the hell do illegals afford San Francisco?

Many of them pool their money and rent apartments, rent rooms in houses, or live in illegally converted spaces like garages or warehouses. Many of them live in areas like the Mission District or across the Bay in Oakland's Fruitvale neighborhood.

Some illegals even live in public housing because their immigration status is often not checked.

Bernardo Gui's picture

Democrats love to build "affordable" housing projects in the most expensive cities in the country because illegal immigrants have a right to walk to work. The middle class can ride busses in from the exburbs. If you don't live in one of these cities, it's hard to fathom how completely fucked up it is.

Wages scale, on the black market just as on the open market.  San Francisco uses a different US Dollar from the rest of us.  If I could live where I do (Minneapolis) and work at San Francisco wages, I'd live like a king.  But no, I make Minneapolis dollars to live in Minneapolis, and no doubt the illegals just like everyone else make San Francisco dollars to live in San Francisco.

Or, like a lot of people who work in San Francisco, they actually live a lot farther away than Oakland; some people I know live near Stockton but group together to rent an efficiency flop, work as many hours in as few days as they can, and go home for a 3-4 day "weekend."

It's very convenient to blame "Sanctuary Cities", isn't it?  That way we can take all the blame off the people and businesses who hire and pay the illegals, which is why they're here in the first place.  It's all very handy, and it helps provide leverage to keep wages down at the lower end of the scale.  Without all the illegals we wouldn't be hearing about a movement for a $15/hr. minimum wage; business would already be paying that just to get employees.

The problem is that the debt-based corporate finance brand of capitalism we use has hit the wall, and now the costs of debt are choking out legitimate business operations.  All they can do now is slash costs, mostly labor, and to do that, they have to have a labor force with no rights.  Hence the drive to criminalize poverty in as many ways as possible, to allow illegal immigrants, and to put the costs of employment onto the taxpayer by using welfare to subsidize low-wage employers.

We'll see a lot of tough-souunding rhetoric about illegals.  But if we look closely, we'll see that nothing is actually going to be done to move people out; just to strip them of any wage leverage.

Dollar Hegemony  

Henry C K Liu

(Originally published as [US Dollar Hegemony has to go] in AToL on April 11. 2002)

There is an economics-textbook myth that foreign-exchange rates are determined by supply and demand based on market fundamentals. Economics tends to dismiss socio-political factors that shape market fundamentals that affect supply and demand.

The current international finance architecture is based on the US dollar as the dominant reserve currency, which now accounts for 68 percent of global currency reserves, up from 51 percent a decade ago. Yet in 2000, the US share of global exports (US$781.1 billon out of a world total of $6.2 trillion) was only 12.3 percent and its share of global imports ($1.257 trillion out of a world total of $6.65 trillion) was 18.9 percent. World merchandise exports per capita amounted to $1,094 in 2000, while 30 percent of the world's population lived on less than $1 a day, about one-third of per capita export value.

Ever since 1971, when US president Richard Nixon took the dollar off the gold standard (at $35 per ounce) that had been agreed to at the Bretton Woods Conference at the end of World War II, the dollar has been a global monetary instrument that the United States, and only the United States, can produce by fiat. The dollar, now a fiat currency, is at a 16-year trade-weighted high despite record US current-account deficits and the status of the US as the leading debtor nation. The US national debt as of April 4 was $6.021 trillion against a gross domestic product (GDP) of $9 trillion.

World trade is now a game in which the US produces dollars and the rest of the world produces things that dollars can buy. The world's interlinked economies no longer trade to capture a comparative advantage; they compete in exports to capture needed dollars to service dollar-denominated foreign debts and to accumulate dollar reserves to sustain the exchange value of their domestic currencies. To prevent speculative and manipulative attacks on their currencies, the world's central banks must acquire and hold dollar reserves in corresponding amounts to their currencies in circulation. The higher the market pressure to devalue a particular currency, the more dollar reserves its central bank must hold. This creates a built-in support for a strong dollar that in turn forces the world's central banks to acquire and hold more dollar reserves, making it stronger. This phenomenon is known as dollar hegemony, which is created by the geopolitically constructed peculiarity that critical commodities, most notably oil, are denominated in dollars. Everyone accepts dollars because dollars can buy oil. The recycling of petro-dollars is the price the US has extracted from oil-producing countries for US tolerance of the oil-exporting cartel since 1973.

By definition, dollar reserves must be invested in US assets, creating a capital-accounts surplus for the US economy. Even after a year of sharp correction, US stock valuation is still at a 25-year high and trading at a 56 percent premium compared with emerging markets.

The Quantity Theory of Money is clearly at work. US assets are not growing at a pace on par with the growth of the quantity of dollars. US companies still respresent 56 percent of global market capitalization despite recent retrenchment in which entire sectors suffered some 80 percent a fall in value. The cumulative return of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) from 1990 through 2001 was 281 percent, while the Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) developed-country index posted a return of only 12.4 percent even without counting Japan. The MSCI emerging-market index posted a mere 7.7 percent return. The US capital-account surplus in turn finances the US trade deficit. Moreover, any asset, regardless of location, that is denominated in dollars is a US asset in essence. When oil is denominated in dollars through US state action and the dollar is a fiat currency, the US essentially owns the world's oil for free. And the more the US prints greenbacks, the higher the price of US assets will rise. Thus a strong-dollar policy gives the US a double win.

Historically, the processes of globalization has always been the result of state action, as opposed to the mere surrender of state sovereignty to market forces. Currency monopoly of course is the most fundamental trade restraint by one single government. Adam Smith published Wealth of Nations in 1776, the year of US independence. By the time the constitution was framed 11 years later, the US founding fathers were deeply influenced by Smith's ideas, which constituted a reasoned abhorrence of trade monopoly and government policy in restricting trade. What Smith abhorred most was a policy known as mercantilism, which was practiced by all the major powers of the time. It is necessary to bear in mind that Smith's notion of the limitation of government action was exclusively related to mercantilist issues of trade restraint. Smith never advocated government tolerance of trade restraint, whether by big business monopolies or by other governments.

A central aim of mercantilism was to ensure that a nation's exports remained higher in value than its imports, the surplus in that era being paid only in specie money (gold-backed as opposed to fiat money). This trade surplus in gold permitted the surplus country, such as England, to invest in more factories to manufacture more for export, thus bringing home more gold. The importing regions, such as the American colonies, not only found the gold reserves backing their currency depleted, causing free-fall devaluation (not unlike that faced today by many emerging-economy currencies), but also wanting in surplus capital for building factories to produce for export. So despite plentiful iron ore in America, only pig iron was exported to England in return for English finished iron goods.

In 1795, when the Americans began finally to wake up to their disadvantaged trade relationship and began to raise European (mostly French and Dutch) capital to start a manufacturing industry, England decreed the Iron Act, forbidding the manufacture of iron goods in America, which caused great dissatisfaction among the prospering colonials. Smith favored an opposite government policy toward promoting domestic economic production and free foreign trade, a policy that came to be known as "laissez faire" (because the English, having nothing to do with such heretical ideas, refuse to give it an English name). Laissez faire, notwithstanding its literal meaning of "leave alone", meant nothing of the sort. It meant an activist government policy to counteract mercantilism. Neo-liberal free-market economists are just bad historians, among their other defective characteristics, when they propagandize "laissez faire" as no government interference in trade affairs.

A strong-dollar policy is in the US national interest because it keeps US inflation low through low-cost imports and it makes US assets expensive for foreign investors. This arrangement, which Federal Reserve Board chairman Alan Greenspan proudly calls US financial hegemony in congressional testimony, has kept the US economy booming in the face of recurrent financial crises in the rest of the world. It has distorted globalization into a "race to the bottom" process of exploiting the lowest labor costs and the highest environmental abuse worldwide to produce items and produce for export to US markets in a quest for the almighty dollar, which has not been backed by gold since 1971, nor by economic fundamentals for more than a decade. The adverse effect of this type of globalization on the developing economies are obvious. It robs them of the meager fruits of their exports and keeps their domestic economies starved for capital, as all surplus dollars must be reinvested in US treasuries to prevent the collapse of their own domestic currencies.

The adverse effect of this type of globalization on the US economy is also becoming clear. In order to act as consumer of last resort for the whole world, the US economy has been pushed into a debt bubble that thrives on conspicuous consumption and fraudulent accounting. The unsustainable and irrational rise of US equity prices, unsupported by revenue or profit, had merely been a devaluation of the dollar. Ironically, the current fall in US equity prices reflects a trend to an even stronger dollar, as it can buy more deflated shares.

The world economy, through technological progress and non-regulated markets, has entered a stage of overcapacity in which the management of aggregate demand is the obvious solution. Yet we have a situation in which the people producing the goods cannot afford to buy them and the people receiving the profit from goods production cannot consume more of these goods. The size of the US market, large as it is, is insufficient to absorb the continuous growth of the world's new productive power. For the world economy to grow, the whole population of the world needs to be allowed to participate with its fair share of consumption. Yet economic and monetary policy makers continue to view full employment and rising fair wages as the direct cause of inflation, which is deemed a threat to sound money.

The Keynesian starting point is that full employment is the basis of good economics. It is through full employment at fair wages that all other economic inefficiencies can best be handled, through an accommodating monetary policy. Say's Law (supply creates its own demand) turns this principle upside down with its bias toward supply/production. Monetarists in support of Say's Law thus develop a phobia against inflation, claiming unemployment to be a necessary tool for fighting inflation and that in the long run, sound money produces the highest possible employment level. They call that level a "natural" rate of unemployment, the technical term being NAIRU (non-accelerating inflation rate of unemployment).

It is hard to see how sound money can ever lead to full employment when unemployment is necessary to maintain sound money. Within limits and within reason, unemployment hurts people and inflation hurts money. And if money exists to serve people, then the choice becomes obvious. Without global full employment, the theory of comparative advantage in world trade is merely Say's Law international.

I think they have probably have rent control. Even if they could afford it, I don't see how they would pass a credit check to rent a place. I suspect they might be able to somehow qualify for below market rate housing.

In fact, many of the people that populated the early US were "transportees," a euphemism for involuntary relocation. Many know that Australia was originally a British penal colony, a dumping ground for their criminals, but few realize the American Colonies were also used in the same fashion.

Many were also serving out a period of indenture, a euphemism for debt slavery (which has made a resurgence in the past 20 years, history does not repeat, but humans do).

So no. There were no "illegal immigrants" in those days. Quite the opposite, as I have shown.

But then, you must have gone to one of those "progressive schools" that give you Smiley Faces and Crocodiles instead of grades. It shows.

Where would you go in Arizona, seems worse?

Ms No's picture

If it's simply Mexicans you are trying to avoid than yes Idaho would be better.  They have lots of other problems though, like meth heads.  Coeur d' Alene and Spokane are nearly attatched now and it's just gotten gross there.  It's nothing like it used to be.  I had some property there and I sold it. 

Way North of Coeur d' Alene still has some really nice spots, not much work though.  A crypto Jew family called the Cowles run that area, the media and everything else.  They are actually huge power brokers tied into Chicago, Wall Street and their family publishes everywhere (yes they are related to the ones in the midwest).  They are major crooks and that place is turning into a police state.

Montana is still pretty much intact.  It's more libertarian than NeoCon.  Just avoid Missoula.  I think you would get along great in AZ as well.  MT and AZ are the last of their kind left.

Yes, it's true.  In Boise, the black population has increased 600% in the last 8 years.  It went from 1,000 to over 6,000 now.  Guess where that massive increase came from?  You guessed it:  over 90% from the Congo, Sudan, and Somalia.  At least they are easy to spot:


They're actually doing pretty well assimilating to American culture, inner-city thug culture, that is.

Idaho may not be perfect, but it's one of the last refuges of decent living left.  The weather is actually quite mild, it's close onough to the Pacific that it avoids the really frigid weather of Montana and Wyoming.  It's even warmer in winter than Colorado.  But you still get 4 seasons with great winter skiing.  


One other thing about Idaho is that there is no water shortage.  Many huge rivers flow out of the mountains which act as like a giant collection area every winter with the snowpack.

Yes, you don't want to live there. The place is crawling with illegals looking for work plowing/shoveling snow in sub-zero temps four months of the year. It’s a brutal environment to live. This year has been especially cold. Long cold snaps between 0-30 degrees, and the (2ft) snow just won’t go away.

In reality, it is a colder environment during winter.  I grew up there in the ‘60s and 20 below wasn’t uncommon, for a few days. These days it rarely gets below 0 and during winter. It’s a mostly conservative area. There are few illegals in Coeur d’Alene A few more in Spokane but mostly related to small time drug and petty crime issues compared to CA.

It’s rare to find Mexican’s in Coeur d’Alene. No crops are grown in the area (wheat hay mostly). It is more of a rural setting and folks from CA may find it extremely boring. Mostly a semi-conservative white area with folks I found to be fairly nice. I recently moved from the area (WA/ID border).

Say away from western WA for the most part. King county (Seattle) liberals run the state. Once infested with these cockroaches, nothing drives them out.

I recently moved from the area (WA/ID border).  Happy to exchange Emails with you if you would like know more. I know the area/people well.

It's not the 60s there anymore though.  If I had major cash to burn I would be buying a couple areas in Western Montana which is Gods country with a far more libertarian attitute.  Coeur d' Alene which is now Coer d' Alene/Spokane... hell no.  Being surrounded by NeoCons is just as bad as being surrounded by liberals and there they have both.  Then south it's all Mormons.  If that is what people like fine, as long as they know what they are getting into. 

Our winters are coming back and we are entering a solar minimum.  I just left there and there was shit tons of snow.  I90 into MT was even shut down.  We had shit tons of snow in AZ even.

I am in Scottsdale but am moving to a cheaper location.  I am going to rent a closet sized place from a Jew on acreage to save some money to buy again.  Scottsdale is called the most livable city for a good reason.  Everybody thinks it's all rich and that's not true.  The prices have been climbing again unfortunately but compared to where you live it's nothing.  You could probably buy two or three homes here for the price of yours and then live off the rent of the other two.  Or you could live in the cooler climates of the mountains.  Scottsdale is like a small town it isn't even like a city.  It's conservative but with Libertarian attitudes like the rest of AZ.  North you have the Prescott area that a lot of people really love.

Just east of Phoenix you have another mountain range that people really like.  Some of North Phoenix and Cave Creek aren't that bad either.  It's too hot down here though but it's beautiful.  Sedona is extraordinary but overrun with Californians.  Don't go by the border, which I'm sure you wouldn't. 

You should come explore sometime since it's so close.  Preferably before it gets too hot.  You could always message me in the corner if you need something.  Anywhere out of the Phoenix valley is way more mild.  How it works here is that every valley you go down into is 10-20 degrees hotter.  In some places you can keep windows open almost all year.  People here are open minded and will have no problems with your opinions or astrology.  It's also an enchanted place so everybody believes something like that here.

In Montana I would go Kalispell area, Whitefish, Somers, somewhere around there.  That is one of the most staggeringly beautiful places in the world.  People are pretty cool and you will also encounter travelers that are interesting because Glacier Park is nearby.  I also really like some Helena area and Great Falls.  That area is very rugged though.  A lot of bears these days, I guess that goes for all of it now.  Snow can get really high in those parts and sunlight lacking.  It's an incredible area though. 

Billings is a little more on the trashy redneck side but I like it.  There are some good spots around Big Timber and whatnot.  That part of Montana is a banana belt and it much warmer than anywhere else up there.  It's more desert like.  Don't go to Eastern Montana that's more oilfield and NDish.

Thank you! I just have to get out of here and I don't know where to go.

I was born in Spokane, last time I was there in the late 80s it was nice.

I don't care about other people. I have lived 5 yrs in my house and I have talked to one person about 3 yrs ago. lol

Nobody likes astrology so I quit talking about it 40 yrs ago. I talk about it here because its the internet! I do it because it

works and is so accurate and so true.

That whole area has gone nothing but downhill since that period of time.  Your best bet around there would be way north of Spokane.  Deer Park is methed out but some of the outlying larger property areas aren't too bad.  I have a friend that has a great property bordering state land out that way but even had to confront a psycho on his land not long ago.  They also just passed something where you have to spend 50 grand or something to do a water survey to put in any new wells or develop your land or something.

There is a big freeway they are putting in out there heading north so you will have easy access back.  Chewelah might be alright.  If your near the Can Liberty Lake, where that one guy is, isn't methed out yet but Spokane is coming fast.  Cheney is still a nice town.  It's liberal now though because of Eastern.  Other than that I would check out north of Coeur d' Alene.  Coeur d' Alene is still better than Spokane.  The South Hill is giant Bolshevik camp so stay away from there and even they have major crime.  That is the last place I lived there and it sucked too.  Just being honest.  North is last direction left there really.

Spokane an "epic Shithole"? Jesus, have you ever lived there? Been here for over 40 years and it's not that bad. You sound like the typical West side liberal soft-paw pussy. Yeah, there is meth, and you think there isn't in Montana or Arizona!?! Try Alaska, the big end-game for keyboard preppers...or Hawaii, or?

One of the main reasons why ID/Eastern WA doesn't have these kinds of shitheads is because it's a hard climate, 100+ in the summer, -5/-10 in the winter...can't be a pussy and live over here. Epic shithole...maybe I am missing a subtle psyop point in trying to color it as something akin to East Baltimore to keep the other CA assholes out - if so, I'll recant. If not, grow a fucking pair and get used to what working class whites look like - no $100 hair cuts here, just Carhartt and the smell of 2 cycle...aka, red neck cologne...and plenty of "go fuck yourself" for the high-minded assholes who think they know what's best.

I am from that area.  You sound like the typical NeoCon that hasn't experienced anything else.  I was just there and Spokane is still a giant ghetto that looks like shit.  There are meth heads literally everywhere.  You can't even hardly be downtown Spokane anymore and who the fuck would want to?  Try walking around at night.  I just had a meth head cab driver in Coeur d' Alene take me my cousins and my 70 year old uncle down a one way road the wrong way. 

Spokane is synonymous for white trash.  Good luck with that.  My dad used to call it skid row.  My friend who I used to work for tells me that they are finding needles everywhere there now.  Coeur d' Alene used to be a good place but it's too close now.  Do you guys stil have all of your Bush stickers on every car in the area?  You guys had that more than any place in this country and it's because of the Cowles and their controlling the paper and all of your TV news. 

Edit: Also I have spent time in both Alaska and Hawaii.  Those places are absolute heaven compared to the Spokane area.  Spokane was actually one of the ground zeros for meth.  Cops and bikers were involved and the tri-cities was involved.  Tri-cities the Mexican riviera that is.

Even Idaho is not immune from the third world hordes.

College of Southern Idaho (CSI) Refugee Center in Twin Falls, which is mostly federally funded, has in the past three decades helped resettle several thousand refugees from countries including Afghanistan, Sudan and Vietnam around Idaho.

Christian pastor Shahram Hadian, a former Muslim, had warned of Obama’s policy designed to turn Idaho into an Islamic welfare state, dumping thousands of totally unscreened Muslim colonizers and potential Islamic jihadists, into Idaho.

Hamdi Ulukaya, the Turkish-born Muslim billionaire who founded Chobani, operates the world’s largest Greek yogurt plant in Twin Falls, Idaho.

Chobani employs employs hundreds of refugees from Iraq, Afghanistan, Turkey, and other countries at it's Twin Falls yogurt factory. Chobani is the main supplier of Greek yogurt for the federal school system.

Hamdi Ulukaya has ties to both Bill and Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Global Initiative, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, and a host of other globalist corporatist figures including Warren Buffet.

Hamdi Ulukaya pledges the majority of his personal wealth “to help refugees" and he does this through the Giving Pledge, an organization started by Warren Buffett and Bill Gates.

Hamdi Ulukaya is also on the board of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York – while still being a Turkish citizen – and he was named Eminent Advocate for the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR).

Amazing how the infestation has spread so quietly under the Obama admiration to remote towns you wouldn’t expect. I use to visit the Boise area many years ago. It was a nice quite rural community for the most part. Who would have ever thought Twin Falls would be invaded. Northern Idaho not so bad.
