The report by the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies, released yesterday, said the illegal immigrant population decreased 13.7 percent, or 1.7 million, from a peak of 12.5 million in the summer of 2007 to 10.8 million in the first quarter of 2009.
Number of immigrants in the country on decline - Framingham, MA - The MetroWest Daily News

The less illegal criminals in this country the better.

All that's needed is a longer recession and higher unemployment and we may be seeing more illegals self-deporting.

I honestly hope that the recession continues into 2010 and considering that Obama's stimulus package has done little to no good at all the illegal alien population may start declining at a faster rate.

The only thing about a continuing recession, is that the businesses, are looking to cut overhead. The first to go will be the Americans that cost more. This will leave illegals doing most of the subcontract / contract labor. It is already happening here.

Yea and what about the illegals that have children and those children are in gangs. Those are now American citizens and we have to deal with them. I see so many having babies that it doesn't seem to make a difference if they have stop coming here. The ones that have made it, are having babies at a fast rate of speed and leaving it to the taxpayers to pay for those children and they are just staying and using our welfare if they can't work!!.

That's something to take into consideration as well.

Those who are probably more likely to leave will likely be the male illegal aliens who are trying to send remittances to their families back home.

I guess I just don't understand their way of thinking. I was listening to NPR the other day and their was an illegal and she was complaining that she might have to go back to Mexico, after being busted in a raid in a meat packing business. She didn't know what to do, because her kids where born and raised here and she wasn't going to leave them. They know nothing about Mexico and she doesn't want to take them back.

She acted like it was Americas fault for her coming here and having children knowing she was illegal. Shes the one that did a dis service to her children not AMERICA.

Why would you EVER have children to live in another country and think you deserve all the convinces of that country with out earning them.

As things here become more grim for Americans----------I can safely that more and more legal 'tools' will be used against the gangbangers up to and possibly including stripping away US citizenship if they are Anchor Babies (both parents here illegally).

Hint: illegal aliens tend to have the emotional maturity of children----------no cause and effect when caught/punished for their crimes hence their whining.

Yet....there was no problem for her coming to a country she knew nothing about.

Maybe if she can figure out who the fathers are, they'll take the kids off her hands.

Well, maybe there is still hope for our country. It's not the legal Mexicans that I want out, it's the gangs they got to go.

We here in Idaho haven't had any problems, but now there's a few cities that no one will go to, unless you have to due to gangs. The worst part is that the Boise area was warned 10 years ago and they just brushed them off as wannabes.

Actually, she was saying that both her husband and she were illegal and working at the meat packing company when it was raid. They are both waiting trial. Makes me wonder how they are making a living. Oh, yea we as taxpayers must be paying.

Sure they are allowed to collect welfare while waiting trial. With our system so jammed up it could be awhile.
