Absolutely! The “estimated” was 1 million, while the “actual” was 3 million. Likewise, our current number is probably at least 30 million. Of course, it could be higher.

Not to mention that even if it was only the Dream Act that passed, how many would bring their kids over and falsify documents so they were eligible? How many already here would do the same.

It was shown in the 1986 and subsequent amnesties that the checking of true eligibility left a LOT to be desired. No reason to think it would be any different now.

Hispanics Abandon Arizona, Fleeing Economy, Immigration Law
No one I personally know has left and never come back because of it. Actually a good friend of mine who turned out to be an illegal, went back to Mexico for a week in August and came back as a legal citizen. I would believe because of SB1070. The media went into overboard on this topic. In terms employment, the entire country is doing about the same as Arizona, but I won't get off topic about that.

Oh puhlease - he left an illegal and in THREE weeks came back a legal citizen - try again, cos I don't think so. Maybe you better try rephrasing your little "story" so it's at least believable.

Well I believe it, I didn't put it on here so everybody had to agree with me. I just wanted to share that. Plus it's a "she".

We need to close the borders completely. Put our military on the border and start hunting down and deporting every single illegal.

We need to end the anchor baby crap. We need to deport every single person who aides an illegal.

They have invaded our country and yet the left whined about invading Iraq when the trespassing hispanics are invading our own country.

Now it is time to pass the same law in every single state to force them back where they belong.

We need to take away federal funds of any state or city that is a safehood for illegal invaders.

It is time we defend our country from the invaders who are coming here to murder, rape, steal and commit record numbers of crimes against our citizens and yet we do nothing about it.

I am all for profiling each and every person to sort and separate who belongs here and who does not.
