Some interesting stats.
Massachussetts ranks 15th for number of illegal aliens. The number is place at around 87,000 by this site.
Estimated number of Illegal Immigrants by state. Definition, graph and map.
If you follow the link for Massachussetts you find that:
Percent of Foreign Population Born in Asia 29.1% [20th of 49]
Percent of Foreign Population Born in Europe 27.3% [10th of 49]
Percent of Foreign Population Born in Mexico 0.8% [47th of 49]
In looking for the stats I found:
"Governor Deval Patrick today will unveil a state-commissioned report that urges him to push for driver’s licenses and in-state tuition for illegal immigrants, as well as English classes for foreign-born Massachusetts residents who need them."
Perhaps we know now why there has been no outcry, no demonstrations, and no grand erroneous political statements by the President.
