U.S. border authorities no longer apprehend illegal immigrants only as they enter the country. Now they're catching them on the way out.

Immigrant rights groups and other critics say the crackdown is a sad reflection of growing anti-immigrant sentiment in the country.
This is my favorite line in that whole story, so sad some people still can't see (or choose not to see for various reasons we are all aware of) the difference between an immigrant and an illegal alien. Kind of disrespectful to legal immigrant to be lumped in the same group as illegals. I seriously doubt there is a growing anti-immigrant sentiment, but would welcome an increase in anti-illegal immigration sentiment. Just my opinion.
