Listening to the GOP White House aspirants, voters might not know that the number of illegal immigrants in the United States is down, attempted border crossings are at a 40-year low and President Barack Obama has deported undocumented workers at twice the rate of his predecessor, according to The Star. Border crossings are at a historic low, deportations are at a historic high, yet every Republican presidential candidate says the first thing we have to do is secure the border, said Frank Sharry, executive director of America s Voice, a Washington group that wants immigration enforcement to focus on serious criminals and national security threats and wASHINGTON When it comes to illegal immigration, Republican presidential candidates are talking like it s 1999. With slight variations, the top GOP candidates back mass deportations, tough state enforcement laws and extending the 1,100-kilometre fence along the U.S.-Mexico border, where illegal crossings were near their highest back in 1999. The top Republican candidates also oppose giving most illegal immigrants a path to legal residency. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
