ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the report titled "Legal and Illegal Immigration to the United States," prepared by the U.S. House Select Committee on Population. The Committee itself was set up simply to study the problem of population growth and can only recommend that legislation be enacted by other committees of the U.S. Congress. The report suggests the federal government beef up its patrols along the border between Texas and Mexico. More than 60 percent of the illegal aliens come from Mexico, with most of the others coming from other Latin American countries. The committee also urges federal authorities to deport immigrants who go on welfare within five years. Yet, it urges that children of illegal aliens not be denied education or medical services because of the status of their parents--a position already adopted by federal courts in Texas--and says the federal government should pay the costs which have been incurred due to the failure of the federal government to enforce its own laws.
