Probably they need to wait so as to have a very large number maybe 100 million illegal immigrants before they could act on reforming the system and secure the borders,who knows?

They will keep coming as long as our government keeps inviting them and rewarding them. Enforce the laws and they will not come. It would be much easier and cheaper to secure the border if there were fewer criminals trying to cross.

You're so full of crap. These people are net takers in our economy not contributors. Educate yourself and amnesty is the worse thing we can do in today's economy. It never makes sense to reward lawbreakers. We don't need these people for anything with 23 million Americans out of work. The only ones benefiting from them are the greedy employers by increasing their profits while passing the social costs of these lawbreakers unto we the taxpayer. Learn something!
