Illegal immigrants with legal children: Easy answer
Make a law that a child who is an American citizen but with illegal immigrant parents has to be deported back along with them if he is under 18. That's all. The child is a minor and has no voice.
If I could leave my country and come to America when my parents made the decision, why can't the children of illegals?
Go talk to your democratic breathren. It'll never happen cuz they need the votes.
I guess Democracy requires breaking the rules.

First generation immigrants are some of the worst nativists around. "What's good for me, is not so good for you."
I note that when I drive through the "Mexican" part of Denver, that several billboards are promoting Sean Hannity's radio program. Hmmm.
Oh, and the whole debate about everyone is an illegal immigrant in America because Indians were here first doesn't apply. If it did, then why can't I go run through Bush's ranch? Why can't Trump share his wealth with everyone? Finally, why does majority get their way? All those things didn't apply when Indians ruled this continent.
Simple. The Bush's and Trump's of the world, took the land, sometimes by force, sometimes not, drew lines, and said "It's mine. It's ALL mine".
What these illegals do is tell American capitalists: "You don't have to follow fair market rules, just pay me 1/3 of what you are supposed to and I will get the job done". Illegals are driving a fair system down the tubes. We don't need better deals on goods. We need a fair system.

Deportation is a very difficult, and very expensive process. It aint happening.
This one's tough because I don't think anyone really wants to set the precedent of forced deportation of lawful citizens. That one puts us all at risk for deportation.
I certainly don't have all the answers, but I do know that we must be assertive with whatever we decide. On the next go 'round, we can't let some offenders go, then try to catch others. Once one person slips through the cracks, others will follow -- people will begin to think that it's OK to not follow the rules. Whatever we finally decide, we must enforce it consistently.
