The American Immigration Law Foundation (AILF), in an immigration law-reform brochure (accessed Sep. 12, 2007) entitled "Immigrants Aren’t Undermining Our Nation’s Security. Flawed Immigration Laws Are," expressed the following:

“Illegal immigrants are not terrorists. They want to come legally to do the jobs Americans don’t want, but our broken immigration system doesn’t allow that to happen. If there were legal channels for these migrants to use, the government could concentrate on identifying the real terrorists. Instead, the government is wasting money and manpower trying to keep out the immigrant workers the U.S. economy needs. That makes the job of finding a terrorist like finding a needle in a haystack.”
