Yahoo! News - Despite new technology, Border Patrol overwhelmed

More than three years after the terrorist attacks in 2001, the 11,000 men and women who serve as the border's front-line defense are overwhelmed. Despite an influx of new technology, such as underground sensors and cameras that pan the desert, agents catch only about one-third of the estimated 3 million people who cross the border illegally every year.

Did you catch that - 3 million per year! And it is quite possibly higher than that. With both Bush and Vicente "The Sly" Fox ACTIVELY ENCOURAGING illegal immigration to the U.S., the problem will only get worse. This is very sad. Some democrats and republicans are starting to realize the mess that the border is in and have begun catering to the huge constituancy of Americans who support a closed border policy (Hillary, Newt). Honestly, I really fear that only another catastrophic attack which eminates from terrorists crossing the Mexican border will be enough to get our politicians to seal it up...
