Too bad. The walls are also closing in on millions of U.S. citizens, but no one seems to give a damn.

A worldwide economic crisis coupled with a surge in border enforcement at the end of the Bush administration is snuffing out the American dream for thousands of immigrants, legal and illegal, advocates and researchers say.

The winds buffeting immigrants, who are struggling for work and cutting the money they send home as the recession deepens, are described by advocates as a troubling bellwether for America, the premier global destination for migrants.

“The reality is that we should be very concerned when America is no longer a place where immigrants want to go,” said Charles H. Kuck, president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. “You don’t want to be Russia.”

On the positive side, the illegal aliens will likely be deterred from entering the country during the global recession.

But if that happens then the greedy, hypocritical and selfish Mexican politicians and elites will be required to provide for them both financially and socially! As a result the US taxpayers will be subsidizing fewer illegal aliens! How horrible is that?!!!

I just saw a piece on National News Media about Russia. It seems they have too many illegal aliens and the public and youth are trapping them and beating the hell out of them. The illegals are running scared. The piece I saw, showed young Russians beating the wholly crap out of an illegal and they said, the government condones it and does nothing to stop it or help the illegals in their country. Personally I think that would be kinda fun.

Frankly: I hope it does not come to that...........

If nothing else: since most illegal aliens are 'brown' Hispanics; any person who looks the part would be at risk irrespective of actual race/ethnicity/legal status.

I agree. I'm fully opposed all illegal immigration but I hope that it never results in any discriminatory ethnic/racial violence. That'll only exacerbate the problem.

In addition, doing so would also give more fuel to the ACLU, MALDEF, La Raza, MEChA, etc. to generalize all anti-illegal activists as "racists/bigots/nativists/xenophobes" which they love doing so much.
