At a time when illegal immigration has returned to the political spotlight, figures released Wednesday show a sharp decline in the number of undocumented migrants crossing the U.S. border, in what researchers are calling the "first significant reversal" in 20 years.

Don't believe it for a minute, just a smoke screen on their way to amnesty.

Is it truly a drop or just a drop in the area they are looking at? Let's get real. You block off one entrance point and they will move to another. It is like water. You make one point harder to leak through, the water will go to the next easiest point.

Why of course there been a drop according to studies and very soon expect to hear the Sec of Homeland Security and OBAMA "DECLARE THE MEXICAN BORDER SECURE" and the NM Governor Certify it.

Why the USA does not have a problem of being INVADED BY FOREIGN INVADES across it MEXICAN BORDER or landing of FOREIGN INVADERS on it's Coastlines only a few poor hard working Mexicans do so, so they can harvest lettuce and send a few pennies to their hungry children---afterward which they return home themselves.

Therefore the very very few ILLEGAL ALIENS in the USA SHOULD BE GRANTED AMNESTY.

Yeah-----preparation is being being made to try to ram another ILLEGAL ALIEN AMNESTY thru Congress.

Horse droppings is more like it! Which BTW is what the invaders bring with them too. It's time for a civil war. Buy guns and ammo. Learn to use them, and be ready.

Agreed. Someone has to defend the country from these illegal alien invaders, lock and load.

I border crossings are truely down, it is because of the economy NOT enforcement.

Besides "down" is NOT good enough. STOPPED is what we are looinig for.

Regarding the picture of the border guards, the uniform color looks odd to me, does it represent something? Like the UN? Anyone know?

Pew has been estimating the number of illegal aliens for years. Their numbers have always been on the low side. It is still unclear how they can estimate the number of people who remain in this country when their visas expire since they use census data.

Unemployment in this country hits 9.6%. This country needs the jobs that foreign nationals hold in this country. It's time for Obama to stand up for the citizens of the United States.

Let's create some jobs for our citizens. Send ALL illegal aliens home! No excuses, No exceptions. Stop issuing new and renewal "Temporary" work visas until the unemployment rate is less than 5%.

"The number of illegal immigrants coming from Mexico has remained steady over the last several years, but there has been a significant drop in illegal immigrants from the Caribbean, Central America and South America, the study found."

If you read between the lines increased border security has nothing to do with the decline, except perhaps increased border security on Mexico's southern border. I guess Mexico got tired of illegal aliens from Central and South America comming through Mexico to take jobs away from illegal Mexicans in the United States.

Right you are!

Whenever the media call illegal aliens "undocumented migrants" we know we're being BS'd.
