We already allow in a milion legal immigrants a year based on our ability to accomodate them in jobs and resources. If anything until our economy improves we need to cut back on legal immigration also and no, that doesn't make me anti-immigration either. It is just common sense.
And common sense says we are not going to deport a large number of illegals and their presence provides the support system to bring in another few million.

So your view and the worst case amnensty lead to exactly the same thing. More illegals.

Untrue. The mother's status is actually unknown. There is at least one court paper that says she entered the US in October at Las Vegas. The problem is the immigration people do not show her entry. (Happens all the time)

The record shows she last entered in 2007 but it also shows her departure from that trip.

I doubt very much the mother snuck in. So likely a missing entry notation. She could be illegal if it was a while ago but most likely not if the Oct entry is true.
