While Cuban and Haitian migrant smuggling networks receive the bulk of public attention in South Florida, smugglers who bring undocumented immigrants from other countries are also active but generally keep under the public radar. Besides Cubans and Haitians, Coast Guard vessels also have interdicted immigrants of many other nationalities on boats headed for South Florida, including Chinese, Dominicans, Mexicans and Ecuadorans in recent years.

“While the primary [migrant smuggling] threat comes from Haiti, the Dominican Republic, the People’s Republic of China, and Cuba, the Coast Guard has interdicted migrants of various nationalities throughout the world,” according to a statement posted on the Coast Guard’s Miami district website.

According to Coast Guard figures, during fiscal year 2012 that ended Sept. 20, the largest numbers of interdicted undocumented migrants were 1,275 Cubans, 977 Haitians and 456 Dominicans. There were also 79 Mexicans stopped at sea and 138 others of various nationalities.

He isn't enforcing our laws now, so he damn sure won't in a second term.

Not surprising --- immigration -- both legal and illegal combined was up considerably in 2012.

And obviously it's not availability of jobs that's bringing them in. When you see it from the view of the illegals -- there are no downsides and it's all rewards.

Which is exactly why they just keep coming from all over the world with no end in sight. We can only hope that Romney is elected and has remained mum about illegal immigration because he plans to do something after he's elected. I know that Ryan is totally anti-illegal. *crosses fingers*
