In the past three years, the number of county-jail inmates whom deputies suspect of being in the country illegally has dropped by nearly 40 percent, from 16,337 in 2008 to 9,894 in 2010.
The trend in Maricopa County is at odds with a national trendthat has shown an increase in deportations of undocumented immigrants in the same time frame. However, experts nationwide offered several explanations for the decrease and its seeming contradictions:

Proof that even the threat of enforcement works. In response to SB 1070, illegals fled Arizona in droves. Unfortunately, most didnít return home, they simply moved to other states, and became our problem.

Lucky you. It's getting much worse where I live. They are pouring in not only from Juarez but from Arizona. Lots of proud new owners of the famous Lone Star Cards happily filling up their shopping carts. If they say they are seeking asylum from the street crime in their country they get their handouts right away, no more having to wait for the baby to be born.

Common sense would say that we look at what works, and emulate it elsewhere.

..."the number of county-jail inmates whom deputies suspect of being in the country illegally has dropped" means that deputies suspected less folk in 2010.

There is no statistics of those suspected that actually turned out to be illegal aliens and jailed and/or deported; only that 16k were suspected and now 10k were last year.

Lets compair apples and apples...How many illegal aliens suspects were arrested, convicted and deported in the same time frame? Is it because many were set loose with no ejudication and/or determination of immigration status? It makes for better numbers to count suspects than convictions.
