We would all like to be more consistent and follow through with what we say. Parents find that challenging to do with a single child much less 11 million people somewhere amongst 300 million. I don't condone illegal immigration or lawlessness of any kind. Our borders need to be secured, period. It is, however, uttlerly impractical, regardless of your views about amnesty, to deport so many. Since deportation isn't a reasonable option we have to find other options. The current bill before congress isn't perfect but it has some decent provisions. It offers a path to citizenship which includes a fine, a waiting period, and ensures that no illegal will become a citizen ahead of anyone already legally on the path to citizenship.
