As for drug runners, my very good friend has it from a high-up BP official that the runners are prohibited (by the drug lords) from causing harm or death to any American, with a penalty of death on return to Mexico. This is because the lords know that an American death will bring in the National Guard, which would effectively shut down the smuggling.

Not 'illegal immigration' related per se; but, the above info is interesting in why the drug cartels and by extension, the coyotes are really watching their manners on our side of the border------------they intuitively realize that the repercussions would be ghastly otherwise.
