This article focuses on illegal immigration into the United States. There are about 10 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. today and most of them work with willing employers or as day laborers. Before restrictive immigrations laws in the 1920s, immigrants came through entry stations and were easily kept track of. The author claims that with our current technology we should be able to do a better job of patrolling the border and keeping track of visa holders.
