Not Quite What It's Cracked Up to Be?

An upcoming report in The Washington Times says that, according to the Congressional Budget Office, the Senate bill will only decrease illegal immigration by 25% a year.

In fact, even that figure strikes me as optimistic. If we don't have excellent border security, and people figure out that illegals are receiving permanent temporary status in one business day under the new regime, what's to guarantee that floods more of illegals -- people who otherwise might not have come -- won't come streaming in?
