Thousands per day, just coming in.

Seems like many don't care though.

Yet we are told that illegal entry is on the decline.

That's a blatant lie. Go down and look for yourself. Befriend a frontline non-supervisory border patrol agent and they'll tell you what's going on. Quit counting on CNN and MSNBC to tell you the truth. The border patrol agents in Yuma and Tuscon are legit and honest.

Pew - look it up. Best source around. BP agent views are anecdotes and reflect only the local traffic in one dimension. The real number involves estimation of ins and outs. Bad economy did more good than anything else and gains in the Mexican economy helped on that front.

The border will never be where the problem will be solved. It has to work everywhere.

We still have at least 11 million illegals here most of whom are Mexicans. When they start to leave in large numbers then we can talk.

Mexicans are down a million partially offset by gains in other groups.

11.3 million was the last Pew number and it is the number quoted by most sources.

Pew is not a reliable source.

Pew is virtually the only reliable source. Everything else is pretty much fantasy.
