Amnesty Proposal Triples Number of Illegal Aliens Crossing Border

It’s like legalization is a magnet or something. But we know that can’t be true because we were repeatedly told by amnesty advocates that illegal aliens would not show up just because we promised to legalize them.

But someone neglected to tell them that.

Arrests of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States have nearly tripled in recent months — in anticipation of Congressional efforts to enact comprehensive immigration legislation, border patrol agents told CBS News Wednesday.

“Once the first group gets across, they call their family, they call their friends and let them know, ‘Hey the time is right, come on over,’” Border Patrol agent and union representative Chris Cabrera told CBS News.

In March, 7,500 illegals were arrested in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas — which includes McAllen — Cabrera told CBS News. That’s up from 2,800 in January.

In February, nearly 4,800 illegals were arrested in the Rio Grande, the local news website The Monitor.com reports.

In fact, agents in McAllen used their station’s carport to process nearly 900 illegals caught over three days in March, according to the Monitor.com.

Why not? The incentive to invade the country has multiplied more than threefold. Why shouldn’t illegal migration get at least a threefold boost?

The CBS report included surveillance video showing more than 40 men, women and children crossing the border illegally from Mexico during the night.

“The people in Washington think they have this idea that the border is safe, the border is secure,” the Border Patrol agent said. “I think they need to come down here and take a look.”

They did.

    That photo of Chucky Schumer and McCain… what do you want to bet Lindsay is jealous of anyone that close to his squeeze?

  • Hmm.

    But, I just read today in the WSJ that there are fewer illegal entries now than at any point since the 1960s. Which is an estimate. Based on the number of nationwide apprehensions. Through 2011. Which might be related to the lack of jobs here.

    But probably not, because Look! Extreme Border Militarization Security Overkill! Securing the border WORKED!

    So, may as well amnesty the harmless trickle of Mexicans who continue to cross our border.

    I picked up a great one from J.D. Longstreet of OmegaDispatch.com, 'double-agent Sen. John McCain.'
    What do your think? Perfect or what?
