SEATTLE - Immigration officials say more than 10,000 illegal aliens were deported in the last year from Washington, Oregon and Alaska - breaking a record for the region.

According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, 10,602 aliens were deported to their home countries between October 2007 and November 2008 - a jump of more than 35 percent compared with the same period a year earlier.

Considering that as many (if not more) are still entering the US illegally … this seems to be a zero sum game to me.

Yeah, the Border Patrol people here set up roadblocks and randomly pull cars over ... they have a large bus sitting off the road as well.

This is just anecdotal, but you are seeing ALOT less illegals coming to the New York and New Jersey area than you did in the 1990s. I know that many of the Ecuadorians started going to Europe after post-9/11 airport rules made it a b-tch to travel, and that many of the Brazilians have gone home due to their booming economy (which will soon go bust). Even the Mexicans and Guats aren’t coming in as large numbers as they were just five years ago.

These numbers will drop to zero after January and they will all be citizens and Democrats by 2010.

(Just like 1964, Republicans will go along but get no credit.)

I suppose it is way below natural increase of illegal populatio and infiltration of new illegals.

Not so much anymore. Their numbers are down to a relative trickle and more are actually going back voluntarily.

The only other option is to support North American Union, but somehow I feel that you are against it too.

Perhaps. I do believe that each time you deport the main bread winner in the family, the rest follow them back. Hopefully the border fence is slowing down the number of crossings.

Is the slowdown of Mexican illegals do to stronger border control, more stringent employer, government oversight, deportation, general disillusionment in the (not so great) pot of gold north of the border or fear of being caught? Just trying to understand the reasons. ;-)

A combination of many of those factors. Those that come via airplane complain about the endless tourist visa problems and security checks, employers in many states now are under more stringent rules about who they can hire, and with the death of the construction industry, there are no more checks to send.

ICE better step it up.
Illegals get amnesty and ICE gets a huge budget cut when the Wizard of Oz takes over.

I can call ICE and tell them where and when to find a few hundred suspect immigrants (our local park playing soccer every weekend). I would if I thought they would do something about it.

I don’t know, an amnesty push could be Obama’s Waterloo.

When the numbers hit 100,000, not 10,000, we’ll start making a dent in 20 million.

Oh really? That’s the only other option?

How about enforcing the border and the law like 142 other countries on this planet do?

Washington state is saturated with south of the border hombres...

There's a shi*load of farm work here, especially on the east side of the mountains, and Skagit County particularly.

They get here, do some pickin and prunin then see the money to be made in the trades, which they have usurped right from under the noses of American workers.

It's good to see ICE is doing some prudent work, but of course, it's never enough...

Yakima Valley has been Mexico del Norte for a few decades now. Even been to Hop City (Toppenish?).

Don't know about Washington State (haven't been back since I moved in 2006). I do know that whereas I saw seemingly thousands of illegals coming from southern Mexico and Guatemala per week in the late 1990s, I don't see too many coming now.

Well, at least until the next construction boom.

Comparing to the current situation adding Mexico would have no negatives too.

Now that Obama is President-elect, the numbers will go back up. Prior to the 1986 amnesty, there was a huge surge of illegals entering the country to take advantage of the anticipated amnesty. The USG estimated that 1 million would apply, but the real number was 2.7 million. FYI: The 1986 "one-time" amnesty required applicants to have been in the country five years prior to 1986. There was rampant document fraud.

If the status of the 12 to 20 million illegals is legalized, they will in turn be able to sponsor an additional 66 million to 100 million more LEGAL immigrants thru chain migration, i.e., family reunification. The country will be destroyed with the stroke of a pen.

It wasn’t an issue in the election because the candidates did not disagree on it - they were both for amnesty.

I wouldn’t give up on stopping legalization. Remember 2007? We stopped amnesty. The public is completely fed up with illegal immigration. And they will flood switchboards on Capitol Hill again to stop any new efforts at amnesty. We’re winning this battle and we shouldn’t give up.

I read somewhere that 1.5 million Mexican’s have repatriated to Mexico since January 2006. I believe these
were Mexican government figures.

Not enough but a start.
