The northward flow is down 13 percent for the first quarter of 2009. That should be good news for Californians, who are broke due in no small part to the impact of illegal immigrants and sanctuary cities.
The economic crisis, combined with a more fortified border, has led to what may be the first drop in the U.S. illegal-immigrant population in years.
There is nothing much to be optimistic about with a 13% decrease except for the direction it is going. Which is down. That’s a good thing. But it also means that there were 137,497 illegals that did enter the country in the first quarter. Down from 159,024 in 2008. I wonder how many of those were terrorists?
