Can any attempt to seal our borders make a significant difference to the flow of immigrants?

Yes. Operation Wetback did. It was the 1965 Immigration Act that brought back high levels of immigration after the 1924 Immigration Act had clamped down. Immigrants also start to self-deport when they believe the risk of being deported is great.

Operation Wetback resulted in a large amounts of arrests but did not hinder future flows of immigration.
Most of the data seems to indicate that cracking down on the employment of illegla immigrants is much more effective.

I agree, those are interesting points. This task is meant to help Afghanistan repress the worrisome, if predictable, expansion of its opium economy, it will greatly hamper NATO's effectiveness.THx,
