Under Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code, "Improper Entry by Alien," any citizen of any country other than the United States who:

The 28-year-old man accused of fatally shooting a Dallas police officer is an illegal immigrant and had been arrested for making a terrorist threat, police said Tuesday. Juan Lizcano, a Mexican national, was arrested Sept. 11 and accused of making a terroristic threat. He was arrested and accused of driving while intoxicated five days later.
Lizcano has never been held on immigration charges, according to police. After threatening his girlfriend with a gun, Lizcano killed officer Brian Jackson, 28, on Sunday, police said. Background checks revealed that Lizcano was in the United States illegally, but police don't enforce immigration laws, department spokesman Sr. Cpl. Max Geron said. In the United States, only Florida, Arkansas and Alabama allow police to enforce immigration laws, Geron said.
10,000 arrive a day you say. And how many depart according to your sources? Most go shopping in Brownsville, Laredo, San Antonio, or other cities leaving positive foreign exchange in American shopkeepers tills before going home to enjoy their beloved "progressive" American goods. 10,000 allies crossing a border is not a threat any more than having 10 friends come over for dinner would be. Especially if those friends come to buy more than they eat, as in a business dinner.

You would be in serious trouble if you kicked all your illegals out of the country as they do all the jobs that other poeple wont do. I belive your economy would be in a much worse state because of it.
