I own a business in Santa Ana, Ca and spend every day there. By simple observation it is obvious that there is a significant decline in the illegal population. Even the 2010 census shows a major decline in the actual population of the city. What happened to these people? They went back to Mexico. It makes no sense to deny an obvious truth.
I live in San Diego, aka, “Tijuana del Norte”, and I have seen no decline whatsoever in the number of ILLEGAL aliens who have infested this city and county. They continue to trek through my property nightly. The continue to fill their jugs with my hose, pick fruit from my trees and steal eggs from my hen house. They continue to break into my garage and try to hotwire every vehicle on the property. While the number of jobs I frequent may have declined the number of ILLEGALs on those jobs clearly has not. There has been no notable difference in the number of ILLEGAL aliens I see and encounter regularly in both my professional and private life. It makes no sense to ignore that truth.
