Finding the silver lining

Apparently the current financial crisis does indeed have a bright side.

(CNN) -- The flow of undocumented immigrants into the United States has slowed in the past three years, a major think tank reported Thursday.

The Pew Hispanic Center report cites no statistical reasons for the decreased rate. It notes the U.S. economy has suffered a downturn and greater immigration enforcement measures have been enacted, which a Pew survey "indicates has generated worry among many Hispanics."

That's one way to put the brakes on the illegal alien issue. Set Wall Street afire and the border problem seems to dry up. I wish someone would have thought of this sooner.
