Since President Reagan’s “Open Gate” in 1986, it was estimated that we had 11 million so-called “illegal immigrants” in the country. According to present statistics I am reading, we still have 11 million on board. One would think we have done a great job in “closing the gate.” Reagan always used the term “fuzzy math.” I wonder who is doing the math on those statistics. It reminds me of the 1950s toothpaste commercial which claimed “nine out of 10 doctors recommend ‘brand X’ toothpaste.” An investigation revealed that the doctors were gynecologists. Fuzzy math again. We don’t know who and what to believe coming out of Washington.

Suggest everyone take political talk with a grain of salt.
