Immigration Part I

MSNBC and Newsweek put together this nifty illegal immigration map to show what states are most affected by illegal immigration and how the Senators representing those states voted last week.

As expected, the four largest states, California, Texas, New York and Florida bear the brunt of the illegal immigrations. However, when adjusted to population, California is the hardest hit with 9% of it's population being illegal immigrants, for Texas, the number is about 8%, for New York, 3% and Florida, about 5%.

The Southwest States, like Arizona, Utah, Nevada, and Colorado and the fast growing southern states of North Carolina, Virginia, Georgia and Tennessee are also largely affected, as is the Pacific Northwest.

Not affected? the Northern Great Plains and Northern Rocky Mountains, Appalachia, Northern New England, Alaska and Hawaii.
