Mr. Chapman neglects to mention some of the other factors that have contributed to the present situation: A vast increase in the quantity and leniency of social programs, especially in California; the activities of the ACLU and other liberal groups that have lengthened many deportation cases into years-long affairs; failure to complete the border fence, so that though crossing at traditional high-volume spots has been made more difficult, crossing at remote spots has not; the threat of Al Quaida and similar groups getting operatives into the country via the border since 9/11/01. Mr. Chapman's preference is apparently open borders in a country with a vast welfare state. Doesn't sound promising.
