I am so tired of all the threads regarding this phony photo. Instead of starting new ones, can people actually look to see what's already there?

Uh oh, improper "termage". Can't say illegal aliens anymore, must say "undocumented workers".

Sorry. BTW.. I am a photoshop expert. Easy to recognize this fake.
Error Level Analysis Results (http://errorlevelanalysis.com/permalink/c8761ab/ - broken link)

It works by resaving an image at a known quality, and comparing that to the original image. As a jpeg image is resaved over and over again, its image quality decreases. When we resave an image and compare it to the original, we can guess just how many times the image has been resaved. If an image has not been manipulated, all parts of the image should have been saved an equal amount of times. If parts of the image are from different source files, they may have been saved a number of different times, and thus they will stand out as a different colour in the ELA test.

It is worth noting that edges and areas red in colour are often depicted as brighter in the ELA tests. This due to the way the photos are saved by various programs. It is not proof that image was manipulated.
Maybe it's fake, maybe it isn't - but according to this method of analysis there is no issue with the "owe" and "give us" portions of the image. What other methods of detection are there other than just looking really closely?

Look at the direction of the sunlight in the photo. The sun is hitting the guy from behind, yet according to th the sign which he is holding at a different angle, the sun is coming from his right side. Two suns I guess.

It's as believable as a pic or movie of people waving Mexican flags, many with American flags upside down or stomping the US flag on the ground.

Yea, how did you come to the conclusion that she is an illegal immigrant? I thought they didn't speak English
