Illegal Immigration Numbers Dropping

Graph of the day, from Kevin Drum:

Now this rate of decrease can certainly be blamed on the economy.  But the fact is that fewer illegal immigrants are coming to the US (200,000 a year vs. 850,000 a year in 2001-2005), and more are leaving to return to their countries of origin.

Politically, Obama is being accused of supporting illegal immigration and not enforcing legal statute.  Surely we can dismiss this notion now, right?
