No Problemo?
Is the illegal immigration problem really solved?
Montgomery Advertiser -- April 24 
Number of US illegal immigrants from Mexico drops
CNN crew watches demonstration of the Sonic Barrier during a visit to American Border Patrol's ranch on April 9.
    The number of Mexican immigrants living illegally in the U.S. has dropped significantly for the first time in decades, a dramatic shift as many illegal workers, already in the U.S. and seeing few job opportunities, return to Mexico.
    An analysis of census data from the U.S. and Mexican governments details the movement to and from Mexico, a nation accounting for nearly 60 percent of the illegal immigrants in the U.S. It comes amid renewed debate over U.S. immigration policy as the Supreme Court hears arguments this week on Arizona's tough immigration law.
Red DotAmerican Patrol Report Comment
    Major newspapers are playing up a recent study of Mexican immigration.Red Dot - the day before the Supreme Court takes up Arizona's immigration law. No surprise here, but will the American people buy it? No. They are tired of decades-long lies about illegal immigration and they want proof.
    Today on the Situation Room, CNN reporters will talk about the Sonic Barrier -- new technology that can count the number of people who cross our borders. This technology should be deployed and, when the people get proof that the border is secure, we can talk about "immigration reform."
    In the meantime, the Arizona law should be upheld and other states should follow suit.
