Fewer people want to sneak into the country.  The number of people caught sneaking in is at the lowest level since the 1970’s.

The Border Patrol caught 705,000 people along the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal year 2008, which ended Sept. 30, according to new agency figures. That’s nearly 2,000 a day and the lowest number since 1976, when 675,000 people were caught entering illegally between San Diego and central Texas, the figures show. 

 

Border is taking credit, saying they’re being tougher on illegal immigrants.  They also say the weak US economy is discouraging migrants.  So, all those who can’t stand undocumented workers coming here, you should say a big “thank you” to our president.
