From the Daily News:
Recent Queens population statistics show the borough is growing despite a lackluster showing in the 2010 Census.
Officials say the new numbers boost their claim the Census count was flawed.
From April 2010 to July 2011, the population of Queens grew by 17,126, according to data released last week but the U.S. Census Bureau.
The new figures place the population of Queens at 2,247,848.
Census results released last year stated the population grew by just 1,343 from 2000 to 2010.
It was flawed because of sanctuary city policies and tone of illegal conversions. But let's blame it on incompetence instead.
