And They Said It Couldn't Be Done

I'm surprised everybody missed the big report in the Arizona Republic about the results of serious, albeit piecemeal, efforts to control smuggling and other illegal entry into the U.S. Putting illegal border crossers in jail, passing an employer hiring law, new fencing, more eyes on the border, and the much touted demand for workers drying up has led to a 40% drop in repeat offenders and fewer illegal crossers.
