11. I read somewhere it had like 80,000 around 911
And ironically, the only and most logical response to improving security after 911 would have been a better watch list and better enforcement of the watch list. Two of the hijackers were on it. If that list can't be enforced, why are we worrying about 6 million Mexicans picking lettuce and other such jobs? You'd think the terrorist watch list would come first.

Making Americans returning from Canada or Mexico show passports does zilch. Why would a terrorist go to Canada first and sneak in from there as an American citizen when he can come to the U.S. directly on his Saudi passport with his visitor's visa, and still be around weeks after going on the terrorist watch list? (Let alone overstaying the visa).
