Quick blurb on illegal immigrants out of work

CNN posted this story about an illegal immigrant having to return to Guatemala because he couldn't find work here. According to the story, our tougher immigration stance may be a contributor.

Immigration experts say it's not yet clear how large an immigration exodus of Latin Americans is under way. But they say anecdotal evidence suggests day laborers, like Pablo, have begun packing -- a result of the economy and tougher immigration enforcement.

Hmm, I thought we needed a new immigration policy. I guess just better enforcement is working fine, along with a sour economy.

There are unemployment numbers for everything from manufacturing to health care. Now we need to add another one for illegal immigrants.
