The United States sent home a record 273,00 people in 2007 after staging high-profile workplace raids nationwide, arresting both illegal immigrants and those who hire them. Local police have helped fill detention centers with undocumented migrants stopped for traffic violations.

As the global economy slows, governments in rich countries are coming under increased pressure to act tough on immigration. While the European rules do not lay the groundwork for workplace raids like in America, they do contain contentious measures such as providing for long detention periods.

The effect will still be the same though...........basically making it a living hell for illegal immigrants in any of the subject countries.

If anything; Spain in particular is having a huge illegal problem------to the point Madrid has been asking for help from the EU in curtailing it.

If the above quote is true, I would not be able to tell here in El Paso or in the Las Vegas area. Things go on as usual. It will take some time I suspect to put a dent on this massive problem
