The article focuses on the impact of increased border enforcement on undocumented immigration in the U.S. based on a report from the Public Policy Institute of California. The report indicates that migrants attempted to enter the U.S. through remote areas due to increased enforcement in urban areas. Only 11% of undocumented immigrants returned to Mexico within a year of arrival in the U.S. in 2002. The border strategy improved the possibility for a migrant to be stopped by the Border Patrol.
