"Illegal crossings have slowed"??! They must be kidding.

And, the 12 million they talk about are probably what they consider "legal", and there's another 30 million who are illegal that they fail to mention.

Uh; here in Arizona, I see far fewer Spanish speaking Indians (most Mexicans/Central Americans are of at least partial Aztec, Mayan, etc. heritage) compared to a year ago.
