Trickle Becomes a Flood?
- For the third consecutive year, Joliet was the fastest-growing city in Illinois and remained one of the fastest-growing in the country, while Chicago continued to lose population, according to new U.S. census estimates set to be released Thursday.
- Meanwhile, Chicago lost around 63,000 residents from 2000 to 2006. The city's estimated population was 2,833,321 for 2006.
- According to many demographers, older urban centers like Chicago continue to lose population as people of childbearing age leave the city for the suburbs and as immigrants chase jobs that are rapidly flowing away from the inner cities.
No wonder the democrats want to grant an amnesty to 12 million illegal aliens so quickly - they'll pick up maybe a million or so living in the city alone - all potential democratic voters. Or at least someone in the Machine can use their forged identity cards to create another "voting bloc."
