In November of 2007, Oklahoma's state law H.B. 1804 took effect.

The law prohibits illegal aliens from getting driver's licenses and specific government benefits, it prohibits the sheltering and transport of illegal aliens, and it allows local police to enforce immigration law in the normal course of their duties. Several months later, it certainly looks like the law has been successful. FAIR (the Federation for American Immigration Reform) has reported that since H.B. 1804 was enacted, 100,000 illegal aliens have left the state of Oklahoma, either returning to the home country or to another U.S. state with more liberal laws.

This shows the effectiveness of state laws designed to crack down on illegal immigration, which show what can be done when a government is determined to enforce the law.
