Exactly! It's beyond belief that anyone would even pose such a question. If it were difficult for people to enter illegally from Mexico, the majority of Mexican "immigrants" would not have entered illegally. Nor would we have massive, unprecedented illegal immigration, primarily via illegal border crossings from Mexico. That's akin to asking if illegal drugs are actually entering our country. In other words, it's a no-brainer.

If it were so easy to cross the border illegally why do they hire coyotes for as much as $5k? $5k to a poor mexican is like $50k to the avg American. And it takes them years to save up for it. Why go through all that if its so easy to just cross the border?
