LOS ANGELES — A report released Tuesday suggests that one quarter of the illegal immigrant workforce in the United States lives in California, and it offers a detailed look at who they are and how they live, using the Golden State as a microcosm to explore how current immigration reform efforts in Washington could impact America. The study by the University of Southern California’s Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration estimates that about 7 percent of California residents – or more than 2.6 million people – are in the country illegally. In Los Angeles County – the nation’s most populous – 1 in 10 residents is illegal.How much water do 2.6 million people use? How much water do the 1 in 10 residents that should not be there use? Drinking, showering, cleaning, flushing. How many gallons? Isn't it the duty of a government to protect the resources of the nation? And if there are people in the country who do not belong, using a finite resource why is that national government not doing anything about it? Well this website says that the estimate is:
Estimates vary, but each person uses about 80-100 gallons of water per daySo at the low end. 2.6 million people use 17.2 million gallons of water per day. Multiply that by 365 and you get 6.278 billion gallons of water used by people who have no business being in the country. Perhaps if the government was doing what it was supposed to do, the water situation wouldn't be what it is.
