Immigration hits 5-year high

Forbes.com just ran an Associated Press article about the boom in immigration -- legal and illegal -- based on a new report by the Center for Immigration Studies, the nation's only think tank devoted exclusively to research and policy analysis of the economic, social, demographic, fiscal, and other impacts of immigration.

The report found that 7.9 million people moved to the United States in the past five years, the highest five-year period of immigration on record. The report comes as the U.S. House of Representatives looks at a bill to curb illegal immigration by boosting border security and requiring workplace enforcement of immigration laws.

Of the 35.2 million foreign-born people in the United States, based on the Census Bureau's Current Population Survey from March, an estimated 9 million to 13 million are here illegally.
