Should address the family issues. Strict laws are separating families. US should consider allowing visitor visas while pending petitions such as 1-130 is there. Considering the process takes too many years . Families might not even be alive by the time visas are received. Therefore humbly request for tourist visas to be given with a bond from the US relative if neccessary.

Who is rallying for the families who have had members killed by illegals? Who is rallying for the families whose breadwinner's job was undercut by an illegal? Illegals, whose families get torn apart, do so as a result of their own actions. They chose to ignore our laws, knowing that the day could come when this would happen. They need to shoulder the blame for their own choices...period. No tears.

it's like this...

there are over 6+ BILLION non-usa citizens in the world.

how many do we let in. how many can we take in without harming those already here?

we currently grant usa citizenship to 1+ million each year. more then any other country in the world.

our unemployment rate is double digit. and the country is going through some really tough times right now financially.

if we go bankrupt by allowing more then we can deal with, does that make sense?

if he applies for legal entry WHY NOT? why not legalize himself with in our laws? you are a citizen and paying taxes like all citizens why haven't you helped him legalize himself? he probably doesn't want to legalize himself many don't they just want to be absolved of all wrong doing, pardoned etc and demand amnesty.

I agree, they don't want to put forth any effort in rectifying their status, they want to be gifted with our citizenship because they think we owe them a living. All they know is gimme, gimme.
