Over 1,000 illegals/day are caught crossing the lower Rio Grande. The Arizona desert was the main corridor for illegals but shifted this year to the Lower Rio Grande. Agents are being shifted from Arizona to the Rio Grande sector but....

"I don't think we have anywhere near the resources that we would require to even make a dent in what we've got going on here," said Chris Cabrera, a Border Patrol agent in McAllen and local vice president of the agents' union. "I think it's common knowledge that we don't have the resources, that's why they're coming in droves like they are. They're exploiting a weakness that they've found and quite frankly they're doing a good job of it."

Shift of undocumented crossings into Texas accelerates - El Paso Times

The influx here [rio grande] is mainly Central Americans, and that’s different from what they had in Arizona,” he said. There, he added, the illegal entrants were predominantly from Mexico.

Sickening. They have no respect for the law whatsoever and yet some want to give those here already amnesty and a path to citizenship? I'll never understand this anti-American attitude.

Yet the defenders of illegal aliens keep saying that new illegal immigration into our country is near zero. I had to laugh at the term "undocumented crossings" also.

All they have to do is demand asylum or give birth and they're home free -- and will receive their welfare handouts. Obama has promised the illegals that none are being deported.

And there is a train that runs from Central America through Mexico that brings them up to the USA -- thousands every day.

The reality is that it isn't a single train, but about 10 to 15 along the route, beginning in Chiapas, Mexico (not "Central America"). And no, it isn't "thousands every day", most realistic data only calls it "thousands" over the span of a year. I thought you guys said Mexico really enforces its immigration laws against Central Americans?

Do you have a link to a source for that "thousands" remark?

It doesn't now. It's planning to give them temporary visas so they can make their way through Mexico easily and quickly. This is from a pro-illegal source btw:

The Mexican government claims 400,000 Central and South Americans cross illegally into Mexico every year. Some are seasonal farm workers, but the vast majority are passing through on their way to El Norte, the United States.

And yet, it was Ronald Reagan who first pushed for amnesty.
