  1. I think illegal immigration was an ongoing problem. I didn't find any specifics about how "bad" it was -- but it's natural for any country to want to enforce its laws.

  3. It looks as though there was an increase in Mexican immigrants in the 90s. As the U.S. economy prospered, more low-paid workers were needed to produce our food.
