So, they've made "amazing progress" in driving down illegal immigration? I suppose that's the result of ignoring the so-called "otherwise law-abiding" illegals, and issuing work permits. Yep, if you give them a free pass, and decriminalize their illegal behavior, that would certainly "drive down" their numbers. Likewise, if we stopped prosecuting shoplifters, the government could also claim that we have made amazing progress in curtailing shoplifting.

People crossing the Southwest border illegally fell 73 percent between 2000 and 2010, according to a report last summer by the Center for American Progress.
How the heck would they know how many illegals have crossed the border? Do they have a system in place to count the number of illegal border crossers? Or, is this another "estimate" they pulled from the sky? Of course, to support their amnesty agenda they must spew this BS. Next, they'll claim we only have 5 million illegals remaining in this country.

I wonder how they "count" people they didn't catch -- and have no idea when, where, or how they entered, let alone how many.

Well, they have made amazing progress in driving down illegal immigration. The government did it by destroying our economy and making it more profitable to stay South of the border and not because anything DHS has done, but to the contrary.

Napolitano is another inept Obama stooge, just like Geithner, Bernanke and Eric Holder.

The only thing the Obama Adm. has made " amazing progress" in is lies, spin and BS.

That sounds like a reasonable estimate and appears in keeping with other population statistics. If you really wish to claim that illegal population cannot be counted then why are you suggesting there is a problem?

In fact this administration deports more and has vastly decreased the influx. I would certainly agree that the influx has likely been closed down as much by the economy as by enforcement though enforcement is well up.

So why are you folk not expressing your happiness with Obama - Whose administration seems more in line with your desires than any other in the last 25 years.
