How about we start pushing for freezing of criminal activity, including illegal immigration

I've got an even better idea. If these people don't want the suffering of family members being separated, then don't break our laws in the first place by coming here illegally. Problem solved.

Every illegal alien here knows that's part of the risk they take in deciding to break our country's laws. And if a hold was put on deportations, there would immediately be a new huge influx of new illegal aliens. And that is the last thing we need while still in an economic recession. Finding new jobs is still a problem here.

If anything, deportations should be increased, thereby discouraging new illegals from coming and then giving back those jobs to actual American citizens.. Deporting the entire family is also an idea that would also keep them together.

What the US needs is a freeze on importations.

Our stumbling economy will never recover with the continued influx of immigrants, both legal and otherwise. We just don't have the jobs for them, considering we have millions of unemployed Americans sitting home, not only not paying taxes by who draw billions in unemployment benefits from the US treasury... money that has to be borrowed from mostly foreign sources. Are we nuts or what?

Amnesty and non-enforcement have been our policy for 28 years, it's failed to solve the problem, and just made it worse.

The part that is broken is prevention and enforcement, yes please fix it.

I am a first generation American of LEGAL immigrants. They did the waiting and forms and paying of fees.
