TUCSON - The U.S. Border Patrol said a new zero-tolerance program aimed at increasing the consequences for people who sneak into the country is working well.

The initiative is aimed at stopping illegal entries into the country by increasing the punishment and forcing illegal immigrants to think twice about trying again.
Arizona Republic article

It seems to me that the timbre of the Arizona Republic is turning against illegal immigrants

Alway's thought it was zero tolerance for illegals. This country has far more damaging things to worry about, that Illegal's should be way down on their list.

Until Mexico gets a strong economy that pays well, those dudes will continue to flock across the border. I know of people who have crossed numerous times, yeah you can jail them for a few months, but they'll keep coming back. They know prosperity and they know poverty, and they don't want the latter. One sector will jail on a second offense, but the human smuggling trade moves to another sector which doesn't have this policy. This has been reapeated since illegals have first started crossing, from the city to the desert and back again.

They are avoiding Arizona-------at least for work.

Note though that many illegals are passing through to other states------the number of 'drop house' busts is skyrocketing here in the Phx area.
