I'm not aware of illegal immigration increasing. Airports and seaports are pretty strict on who can even go on airplanes and cruises. I think the Mexico-US border and tourists visiting the US may overstay, but the statistics on illegal immigrants probably remains pretty static.
That is BS and you know it. Our current govt encourages illegal immigration every chance it gets
And it is true, that Obama and his ilk do encourage illegal immigration. They have said as much when they choose who to deport and who not to deport. If you are a good illegal, we will let you stay. Do you honestly think this doesn't encourage more illegal immigration?
I have read reports that 2.9 million illegals came forward to accept the amnesty. At this point in the US we have between 11 million and 20 million illegal aliens. Do you think amnesty solved the US problems since then? Nope it has gotten worse and has exploded since the 80's.
About three million illegal immigrants were granted legal status through this act
Hey, dummy, that's the 'last' immigration reform bill signed into law in 1986. That's over one-quarter century old. OLD and outdated. Do you understand? The public wants a NEW IMMIGRATION REFORM LAW. NEW.
Our May 2013 survey found that 75% believed immigration policy needed at least major changes, with 35% saying it needed to be “completely rebuilt.” Yet the broad public agreement that immigration policy should be revamped was not matched by consensus on how to deal with illegal and legal immigration.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — President Barack Obama has designated nearly a half-million acres of rugged desert terrain along the U.S.-Mexico border as the nation's newest national monument.
The proclamation on Wednesday heightened criticism from some lawmakers in the West and local law enforcement agents who see the move as a threat to security in a region where the influence of Mexican drug cartels, human smuggling and illegal immigration are all apparent.
Thread title: What should be done about illegal immigration?
Federal Law Enforcement
A federal law enforcement agency is an organizational unit, or subunit, of the federal government with the principle functions of prevention, detection, and investigation of crime and the apprehension of alleged offenders. Examples of federal law enforcement agencies include the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Secret Service, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF). BJS has surveyed federal law enforcement agencies seven times since 1993. The 2008 Census of Federal Law Enforcement Officers (FLEO) included agencies that employed full-time officers with federal arrest authority who were also authorized (but not necessarily required) to carry firearms while on duty. The officer counts exclude officers in the U.S. Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and the Transportation Security Administration’s Federal Air Marshals. Findings are based on the 2008 Census of Federal Law Enforcement Officers.
