The number of illegal immigrants in the U.S. is actually closer to 20 million, according to former Border Patrol agents who issued a letter this weekend disputing the count of 11 million that the government and most top private demographers use.
Crossing a bombing range doesn't seem to make sense at any time — but in the Southwest, the Barry M. Goldwater Air Force Range has become a key route for drugs and illegal immigrants looking to avoid detection as they make the trek into the U.S.
Deploying 20,000 more U.S. Border Patrol agents along the southwestern border as proposed in an immigration reform bill passed by the Senate would be "a huge waste of resources," according to former border agents, who say that money should be used to track down dangerous criminal aliens nationwide.
"The more likely figure is 18-20 million and rising daily," Zack Taylor, chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, Inc., said in an open letter dated Sunday.
"To even contemplate another amnesty without verification of this basic information is malfeasance in governance and fraud on its face," Mr. Taylor said.
