Feb. 12) -- The population of illegal immigrants in the U.S. has fallen by 1 million in the past two years due to a combination of the recession and increased law enforcement, according to the latest estimate by the Department of Homeland Security. While activists largely agree that the influx of illegal immigrants is at a welcome ebb, some vehemently contest the accuracy of the agency's figures and remain bitterly divided on what impact they should have on the country's immigration policy going forward.

The population of illegal immigrants in the U.S. has fallen.One of the few times a high number is a good thing.
Actually that sounds like a pretty solid idea. I'll give them credit for that. Get rid of the trouble makers first. However, I would like them to use at least some resources raiding places where illegals are taking jobs locals could fill.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
The existence of organized groups advocating for illegal immigration is a criminal conspiracy. These groups should be prosecuted under RICO statutes. Rallys for illegal immigrants are inherently illegal. There is no freedom of speech to conspire to break the law and support those who do.
When has the U.S. government provided even a remotely accurate number for anything...ever? My rule of thumb is to at least triple any number they give and that usually puts you in the neighborhood.
Now here is my conspiracy theory for the day:
Obama and his merry band of Congressional RATs initially thought that taking over this country was gonna be a cake walk. Pass Stimulus, pass Porkulus, pass Healthcare, pass Cap & Tax, then pass Immigration Reform (Amnesty).
Obama, by waving his little magic wand could legalize 30 million illegal's on the spot and those 30 million would then import their entire families to this country and before we even realized what hit us we would have over 100 million new democrats to rule this country into the ground in perpetuity.
How's that for a theory?
If the DHS says it’s dropped, WE KNOW it has risen!!
“This is our country, our home, our laws. Obey them and come here legally or stay the F out!”
Totally agree. I wish our sellout BASTARD WHORE politicians felt the same way.
“Obama, by waving his little magic wand could legalize 30 million illegal’s on the spot and those 30 million would then import their entire families to this country and before we even realized what hit us we would have over 100 million new democrats to rule this country into the ground in perpetuity.”
80 million unskilled illiterate slobs, many of them criminals. Buh Bye America!
Come on, pull the other one. It has bells on it.
It is our immigration policy, enacted into law that makes them criminals. It is our immigration policy that makes illegal entry into the US only a misdemeanor. Reentry after being deported is a felony. The misdemeanor is normally waived after producing a US citizen/anchor baby.
Like if you robbed a second bank, then it would be a felony. Analogous to the “One free grope” rule for sexual harassement.
voters, voters, voters........ dims don’t care if the are legal. So many have left our town we are closing one of our schools.
What should the new immigration policy be?
Actually, we should go back to the pre1986 policy that Kennedy pushed through.
I bet the illegal immigrants would like to vote on it.
Thank you Stephen. It must gall those who go through the legal and lengthy process to get here, like my daughter-in-law had to do, to see these pugnacious arrogant beggars push their way in.
Thank s Levante. Perhaps come Novemeber we can make them know it!
It galls me to no end. Our prisons are bursting with illegal immigrants who committed violent crimes. California is bankrupt, due in no small part from 7 million illegals sucking it dry.
For almost all those Mexicans being in jail is no big deal. It certainly is a thousand times better than being in a Mexican jail. Think of it, free food, free medical care, literacy and educational programs out the wazoo, all at taxpayers excuse. You know, every time I see some coin jar on a counter in some convenience store for a kid who needs a liver I say the prisons are filled with donors. At least the scum would be doing somebody some where some good.
