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.

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.

Don’t worry, all deportations stop on January 20.

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.
