It would appear at $7k/each that haul of humans over our border illegally was to net the coyotes a cool $3.5 million had it been successful.

I thought it should be very eye-opening to some that none of the 513 were from Mexico, rather all were OTMs.

High unemployment is doing nothing to deter this.

The only thing that will slow down the illegals would be to cut them off the welfare handouts and have the laws against this enforced.

Good thing they stopped the Japanese guy from coming in!

Sadly, they are only starting to do this after the Zetas have killed 200 of them that are known.

Who knows how many of these illegals, the Zetas have just killed for fun.

I was just thinking this. Why are you applauding them for? The majority of illegals that cross the border are MEXICANS. Why don't the Mexican authorities prevent Mexicans from crossing the border?

Because they want them to cross the border. The money they send home is a huge source of revenue for Mexico.

Because there is no law that restricts Mexicans to leave Mexico, just as there is no law that restricts Americans from leaving the US... people are free to move and go as they please.

Thank you Police for keeping the US from taking another huge social service hit. Now maybe the Mexican Govt can do more for their poor so they don't want to do the same.
