Study Blames Enforcement for Illegal Immigration

"U.S. policies and laws aimed at improving the nation's immigration system have unintentionally spurred more immigrants - authorized or not - to stay in the United States, according to a new paper released today," says News10.net.

"The paper, 'Unintended Consequences of U.S. Immigration Policy,' released by Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, seeks to explain the reasons behind the surge in immigrants from Latin America since 1965, placing blame on the elimination of a legal - but vilified - migrant worker program, intervention in wars in various Latin American countries and more difficulties in entering - legally or otherwise - the United States."

The best authorities can do is point to the number of crossers apprehended each year by the Border Patrol. Officials used to use a rule of thumb that for every person apprehended, another three or four successfully evaded capture and made it through," the Washington Times writes.

"The recent decline in apprehensions would suggest fewer people are trying to enter the U.S. But the fact that deaths have remained high could mean that traffic has shifted to different areas, but remains steady."
