Study: One in Ten Adults in U.S. Not Proficient in English

The number of working-age adults in the United States with limited proficiency in English has more than doubled since 1980, according to a new Brookings Institution study.

One illegal alien has cost a North Carolina county more than $100,000

As is the case throughout the virtual ‘border state’ of North Carolina, the residents of Durham County are paying a heavy price, both literally and figuratively for the influx of cheap, albeit, illegal labor which has now flooded their county. Of course, the fact that the county seat of Durham currently has a ‘sanctuary policy’ in place plays a major role in this costly problem.
