Read Latest Breaking News from Newsmax.com CBS: Illegals Entering US Triple With Talk of Immigration Reform

Arrests of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States have nearly tripled in recent months — in anticipation of Congressional efforts to enact comprehensive immigration legislation, border patrol agents told CBS News Wednesday.

“Once the first group gets across, they call their family, they call their friends and let them know, ‘Hey the time is right, come on over,’” Border Patrol agent and union representative Chris Cabrera told CBS News.

In March, 7,500 illegals were arrested in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas — which includes McAllen — Cabrera told CBS News. That’s up from 2,800 in January

I had to laugh at that a little. I'm sure they have internet and cable news over in Mexico. It's not like they had to come here, find out about the law, and then call people over.

Thankfully, the authors of the bill foresaw this and backdated the eligibility for any legalization to Dec. 31, 2011. So anyone who came after that, will get deported.

Why not back date it to 2006, 2002, 2000, 1986? How can you be so sure that anybody that came after that date will be deported? Illegals come up with fake/forged documents all the time, it's not to hard to do apparently.

They will not get deported. They will become the next group of illegals to settle in the US and work in the shadows.

That's one of the silliest parts of this whole fiasco.

You expect people who entered illegally, will keep careful records of the date he did so, to make sure the U.S. officials can throw him out when the time comes?

This is beyond stupid.

Yep, because no one in their right mind picks fruit for 2 bucks an hour when they can move on to a better job. Businesses will push for more slave-like labor.

Lather rinse and repeat. Bend over tax payers.

And how is an illegal, illiterate migrant going to document his date of entry? He'll probably say whatever he thinks will keep him here. And how is the government going to verify this? I bet you can't tell us. I don't want to get infracted so I'll just second Little-Acorn's notion.

There is nothing in the Senate bill about deporting them. They won't be deported for the same reasons the ones that came before that date aren't being deported.

Another ridiculous bit is the line that "This doesn't automatically give them citizenship, so that means it's not actually amnesty."

(patiently)

They came here, or stayed here illegally.

They knew what they were doing was illegal.

That means, they knew they were likely throwing away any chance they might have had at citizenship.

And they did it anyway.

To those of us with enough cognizance to count to ten without gloves on, this says to us that they weren't interested in citizenship. Or not enough to matter.

They simply wanted to be here, and stay here.

And what is the very first thing you are offering them? They can stay here.

Now, you can go into whatever cloistered discussion rooms or swank parties you go to and solemnly tell each other that it's technically not amnesty since it doesn't include citizenship.

But to the 99.9% of actual humans that it matters to, amnesty is exactly what it is. And they they will simply say, "Yes, please, thank you very much". And not pay much attention to your "warnings" that the deal doesn't include citizenship... as if they gave two hoots about that.

I just have one request: Will you please stop insulting our intelligence by pretending WE believe your silly tripe about citizenship making the slightest difference in what you are doing to this country?
