As Amnesty Looms, Illegal Immigration Picks Up Speed in Arizona

You're wrong. Katie is right. This is not about illegals who are changing states. This is about illegals who are coming over the southern border from Mexico. Illegal entrants become illegal immigrants when they're not caught by the Border Patrol. They absolutely, positvely DO ad to the number of illegal immigrants in the United States. No amount of fuzzy math or label changing will change that fact. Pinal County, the county mentioned in the article (did you even read it) is in southern Arizona. It's the most frequently travelled county of illegal immigrants in Arizona. Your comments defy logic.

During his State of the Union address last night, President Obama touted the lowest illegal border crossings in 40 years, but with amnesty looming and border enforcement most likely coming after citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants, law enforcement officials in Arizona are seeing an uptick in activity.

"We are seeing an uptick in bodies as of the last couple of weeks. We are starting to see large groups again in our AOR [Area of Responsibility]. The groups are up into the 20 to 40 range," Pinal County Sheriff Department Lieutenant and SWAT team member Matthew Thomas tells Townhall.
