Fed Chairman Bernanke seen as ‘Man of the Year’ in the fight against illegal immigration

After reviewing the accomplishments of officials of the Department of Homeland Security, Customs, Border Patrol, Immigration, and the Internal Revenue Service, it appears that Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve, has done more to remove illegal aliens from the U.S. in the last year than any other person or agency involved in the effort to end illegal immigration.

"Thanks to Chairman Bernanke and his policies to destroy the American dollar, our economy has collapsed; we are in a major recession; and illegal aliens are fleeing our country like rats off of a sinking ship," said U.S. Border Control Chairman Ed Nelson. “It's a brilliant strategy,” he added.

More than 3,000,000 immigrants have stopped sending money back to family members in their home countries during the last two years, the Inter-American Development Bank said. Growing numbers of Latino immigrants are also considering returning to their home countries in response to the poor economic conditions in the United States. The IADB survey of 5,000 immigrants from Latin America found that only half of the Latino immigrants in the U.S. now send money regularly to relatives in their home countries, compared with 73 percent two years ago.

Money transfers to Mexico have started to decline, reversing five years of spectacular growth. In the first quarter of this year, transfers to Mexico dropped 2.9 percent from the first quarter of 2007, the first significant decline since 1995.

Latino immigrants said life in the U.S. has become more difficult, with 81 percent saying it is harder to find a good-paying job, and 40 percent saying they were earning less this year than the previous year. Over all, slightly under one-third of the immigrants said they were thinking of leaving the U.S.
