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

Amnesty and non-enforcement have been our policy for 28 years, it's failed
to solve the problem, and just made it worse.
"Immigration advocates, supporters rally across US in push for freeze on
deportations"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?
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.
