Immigrant crossings into Arizona on the rise

The latest figures show that Arizona, which is about to put into effect the nation's toughest immigration law, also is the only border state where illegal crossings are on the rise.

While tightened security and daunting fences in Texas and California have made Arizona a busy crossing corridor for years, migrant smugglers now are finding new ways through the state's treacherous deserts.

New U.S. Border Patrol statistics show arrests on the Arizona border were up 6 percent — by about 10,000 — from October to April, even as apprehension of illegals dropped 9 percent overall. The agency uses arrests to gauge the flow of migrants; there are no precise figures on the number of illegal crossings.

Statistics from the Mexican side also show a rise in illegal crossings through Arizona.

Grupo Beta, a Mexican government-sponsored group that aids migrants, helped 5,279 people from January to April in the area across the border from Douglas, Ariz., compared to 3,767 in the same period last year, said agent Carlos Oasaya.

Overall, illegal immigration through those two states, New Mexico and Arizona has declined from nearly 1.2 million in 2005 to 541,000 last year, according to the Border Patrol. In Arizona, illegal crossings fell from 578,000 in 2005 to nearly 250,000 last year — before the recent rise.

Today we had Mexican Presidente and Obama try to instill in American Viewers that Illegal Immigration is on the decline. That was just another spin job on the newest numbers that the AP is reporting on.

Because of the threat of new enforcements, Illegals are trying at a faster pace to get into the US as they feel they might not get a chance to get in on any Amnesty Laws if such a law gets passed.

In reality, Any one claiming to tell you numbers are down and decreasing for Illegal entry, Just point them to this article.

I have some important info for you. Everything Obama says is a lie. He is a pathological liar. If you want to know what he is up to just take his words and say the exact opposite. Remember when he said he was going to give us a transparent government and then to show us that he passed a healthcare bill that we had to wait until it passed to see how darn great it was? So if he says there is less immigration that means there is more and he wasnts even more. If he says its good for the economy it is meant to collapse it. If he says its for your health it is either to kill you, over tax you, or to control your behavior. Dont blame him though, because he is a Progressive and so he cannot help himself. Its like a mental illness.
