But, our borders are more secure than ever. In fact, they’re so secure we are ready to proceed to Phase 2: Amnesty.

With signs of economic recovery growing, some immigrants who left the Inland area for their homelands after losing their jobs are returning to the United States, Mexican officials and leaders of local immigrant-assistance groups said.

"The United States is beginning to stabilize," Mendoza said in Spanish during a recent visit to Perris. "They know that in a short time they're going to have a job."

Can some Pro-Illegal please explain to us why an American wouldn't take this job if offered? Shouldn't get this job over someone here illegally?

As recently as late 2007, he was making as much as $2,800 a week with overtime at a Long Beach refinery.

134K a year?

If they do the counts around the Christmas holidays, of course they can count a lot returned home to Mexico but that's because they often go home during the holidays -- why not? But of course they come back.

There is no control at all over the border. With a drug war going on across the border, it's estimated at least 80,000 people in Juarez have come over to the US side, but that has to be on the low side. They can simply pack up and come over. No problem that there are few jobs, they know the government will provide for them.
