    Less arrests =/= less people coming in illegally.

    Have their methods or resources changed significantly enough to explain the difference? If not, it sure does equal exactly that.

    All it means is less people are getting caught. It could be because of lax law enforcement efforts, reduced budget, or increased craftiness or different tactics by smugglers.

    Either way, less arrests =/= less attempts.

    There's significantly more border agents now than ever before.

    There's been more money budgeted for it than ever before.

    In the article it mentioned that coyotes have "skyrocketed" their fees for smuggling people across the border. According to free market principles, doesn't that mean demand is down and/or it's getting harder for them accomplish the same thing?

    Also affecting less attempts is the lack of jobs and the crash in the housing market. Construction jobs have been one of the largest employers of illegals and that industry still hasn't recovered.

    They're building tunnels all the time now. Thats probably their best way across. Even a 30 ft concrete wall may not work. Unless they dig down a 40-50 ft foundation
    I say build the wall anyway. From Brownsville to San Diego. Put a superhighway on top. Maybe some hotels & theatres. Make the very bottom of the foundation hollow enough for a person to walk and take XRay pix under the wall to look for tunnels.

    Then round up every beaner inside the USA and tax the shit out of them like the rest of us.

    Damn it. When I saw that "round up", I thought you'll have the balls to finish that sentence the way you really want to finish it.

    Are the crossing stats based on recorded arrests?

    I'd like to see some more graphs and charts on the subject, please.

    (preferably of the ''pie'' variety)
