Illegal immigration has slowed in recent years, with the Border Patrol recently recording the fewest arrests in almost 40 years. But many people worry that the Mexican border, the most popular crossing point for newly arriving illegal immigrants, still isn’t secure more than a decade after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

    In a Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2011 photo, Arizona State Sen. Russell Pearce, R-Mesa, left, prepares to address the media in Mesa, Ariz. after losing his recall election bid, as Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpiao, right, stands by his side. The ex-legislator who championed Arizona’s illegal immigration law says he has no regrets but that he’d like voters to give him a second chance. Ousted in a November 2011 recall election in which the immigration issue was a major focus, Russell Pearce is now running to return to the Arizona Legislature, where he was Senate president when ousted. Pearce faces what appears to be an uphill climb as he faces prominent businessman Bob Worsley in the Aug. 28 Republican primary for the state Senate seat for a redrawn district in suburban Mesa.

    A police officer patrols a detention centre for immigrants in the Amygdaleza suburb, western Athens April 30, 2012. Greece opened its first purpose-built detention centre for illegal migrants on Sunday in Athens, a week before a national election where illegal immigration has emerged as a key issue. Amygdaleza is the first of about 50 camps that Greek officials say will be built by mid-2013. It consists of dozens of containers that were originally set up to house people hit by natural disasters such as earthquakes.

    Protesters march past the Maricopa County Sheriff's jail in protest against Arizona's illegal immigration law, SB1070, Wednesday, April 25, 2012, in Phoenix. Supreme Court justices strongly suggested Wednesday that they are ready to allow Arizona to enforce part of a controversial state law requiring police officers to check the immigration status of people they think are in the country illegally.
