TUCSON - The Border Patrol experienced a turning-point year in Arizona in 2008, with increased manpower, resources and technology bringing dramatic drops in illegal immigrant arrests, top officials say.

They're confident more is on the way in 2009, in part because of a continuing shift away from a policy under which most illegal immigrants are automatically allowed to return home after being apprehended sneaking across the border.

The victories continue to grow

The bad economy obviously plays a major role in this positive news.

It's quite bittersweet: we'll either have a good economy with floods of illegals entering or a bad economy with illegals leaving.

Hindsight being 20/20: the 2000's were really not good economic times; normally the working people (blue collar folks) see part of the prosperity----------not this time.

Between the do-gooders and the greedy employers----------many of us were undercut by criminals from other countries.

Once we get the border in place and make it EXTREMELY hard to enter illegally then the next time the economy swings upward all Americans can prosper. Not just wealthy Americans and the families of Illegal Aliens who send the money out of the Country for good.
