Just a general question that I seldom see asked. I wonder just how many illegal aliens have entered the USA in the past month. any ideas? I would guess that at least a thousand sneak in every day so that would indicate that over 30k a month come in.....Next question is how many a month are caught and sent back?

You grab a handful of coins and throw them in the air, then try to catch them with your eyes closed. You should get a very accurate count that way.

No one knows. Thee fed likes to use guesstimates. Depending what the need is will determine if they inflate the number or understate the number. Right now the Admin wants to say that illegal immigration is down and the border is secure. They also want to minimize the actual impact until it is too late to un do what the FED has done. So they in my opinion are understating thee numbers.

Assuming the deportation statics are trending this year similar to recent years during this Presidential administration - 400,000 a year - then I'm guessing the outflow, deportees, is about 1,100 a day. I don't like to guess, though. No really something to hang a hat on.

Someone in here posted a link that the number of new illegals crossing our border has tripled since the first of the year with Obama's promised amnesty. I tend to believe that.

Yes, I believe it's tripled at least -- why wouldn't it? The Mexican radio shows are boasting that the big amnesty is right around the corner so it's pretty much "Come one, come all" "Blue light special on US citizenships with all the many benefits that go with it" here on the border.

The government is doing nothing at all to enforce the visas, including the ultra cheap border crossing cards. For $149, they can legally come over the border and then do whatever they like -- find a job, head on to other parts of the USA, nothing is being done to make sure they respect the terms of the visas we're handing out like they're going out of style.

Many illegals who had returned home are now coming back to the USA to get in on this huge amnesty just in case they're not given another one soon after this. Even if they prefer to live in their own country, a deal like this is just too good to pass up. They can get in on the amnesty, then return home but return here whenever they like, spend their retirement here getting nice fast welfare checks and food stamps and free housing.

And now they're letting all those big trains come over from Mexico, very very few boxcars or other cars are being checked, our administration simply "assumes" they're not taking advantage of this. You can bet it's easier than ever to get over that border to any part of the USA they like.

The only enforcement is at the fence, all the illegals have to do is make it inside the USA just by a few yards and they're home free.

Obama is going to be sure he does nothing to curtail the illegals from coming here. He will talk the talk but in the end he is really doing nothing...And guess what when the next pres is elected even if he is a republican the same old talk the talk but really do nothing will continue...Hell its been this way for over 20 years..talk the talk and do nothing knowing every day thousands more of these trespassers come in.The native americans could do little to stop the European colonization happening here but we can do something about the illegal alien colonization..........but yet our non government wont do its job.
