Once again, the states are rebelling against Washington.

Fed up with dithering in D.C., states are proving that enforcement works. Enforcement can not only prevent illegal immigration but actually reverse it.

Illegal immigrants by the tens of thousands are leaving states that have adopted tough new laws -- Colorado, Georgia, Arizona and now Oklahoma. Local efforts are being launched too quickly to count, involving more than 100 communities so far.

When denied jobs or public benefits, many illegals return to Mexico. Others move within the U.S. to areas with local amnesty policies.

Left-leaning groups are on the move, too, flocking to the courts in efforts to block state and local enforcement. Only Congress is standing still -- except for backsliding efforts to push more back-door amnesty.

But the crackdown is a gain for taxpayers. Estimates show that illegal immigrants cost Oklahoma taxpayers $200 million a year, mostly for education and healthcare.

It never should have been allowed to get to this point. I'd like to know where in the US, they have amnesty policies? Why wouldn't every single illegal be there if that were the case?

LOL! Mexicans hate the cold. I on the other hand much rather prefer the cold.

They'd probably stop in Canada where I understand a few have already gone. And Canada is mad at us about it

Isn't it a shocker! LOL! Enforcement does work! I agree, all 50 states need to get on board and now.

Rick 'The Hair' Perry needs to get his butt in gear on this, but Texas politicians at the state level seem terrified of alienating Hispanics in the state. They just assume they're all pro-illegal.

In a personal, unscientific poll (asking American co-workers of Mexican descent - about a dozen in all), I found that 0% of American Hispanics support illegal immigration.

I guess the bleeding hearts would refer to these people as self-loathing racists.

Who cares what Canada thinks? If they go up to Canada, they become Canada's responsibility to deport or coddle. It's not like Canada isn't already annoyed with us for LOTS of other crap anyway.
