Thanks to all the usual suspects (the Democrats and all the other leftist looney tune moonbats) and thanks as well to all the unusual suspects (so- called conservatives and even our own president, George W. Bush!) you may soon have to start brushing up on your Spanish. Read the entire article titled "Holidays Inspire a Rush to the Border." Here's an excerpt:
Though 2,000 border patrol agents will be added over the next five years, they do not address the reason immigrants come illegally, he said, adding, "We have to have the will to go after the employers."
With the Mexican economy faltering and Mexicans believing that the Bush administration will offer blanket amnesty to illegal immigrants, more people entered the United States illegally last year than any other since Sept. 11, 2001. Officials estimate that three million people entered the United States illegally last year, a majority of them Mexican.
The business of smuggling people has become so lucrative that drug-style cartels are in the game. As a consequence, murder and kidnapping have skyrocketed in Phoenix, the main hub of the smuggling business. An illegal crossing costs upward of $2,000.
"Stand on the border around Christmas and you'll see what a joke the immigration policy is," Mr. McCubbin said.
Not all news is bad on the border. In a ceremony on Monday, 90 wild parrots smuggled into the United States were repatriated to Mexico, a gift from the American government.
One cynical border official sniffed that the parrots, too, would probably make their way back to Los Angeles after Three Kings Day. [Emphasis mine.]
