Illegal immigration and the economy

Instapundit and Kausfiles seem to relish that the illegal immigrant “problem” is solving itself because the economy is in the tank. Thats weird, because I recall the argument being that illegal immigrants come here for the copious welfare benefits. Anyways, if there is indeed a connection between a hot economy and an increase in illegal immigrants seeking jobs (which is historically true), wouldn’t increased desire to migrate here be a good sign? As I’ve said in lectures, the day folks are no longer willing to risk their lives to come here is bad day for our economy.
