Illegal immigrants will be more willing to assist in policing operations putting dangerous people behind bars if they have no fear of being deported.
Unless you believe every single illegal immigrant is a violent and dangerous person you should support this viewpoint.

The Constitution starts "We the People of the United States,". There is a process to becoming a legal immigrant, it ends with U.S. citizenship. It is not and shouldn't be legal for a person to come here and stay indefinitely without becoming a documented citizen.

Are they declaring their own little Civil War with the USA? Frankly, seceding would save the federal government a lot of money as they continue to kill off their own citizens and hire mafia as leaders. Wonder why Obama isn't saying much about his "home" state-and arn't Michelle's family still there?
To defy a federal law will cause Congress to pass laws to punish them by removing financial aid-and Illinois has already destroyed their economics. They will have to capitulate-don't they know they are punishing their own people?

If he did that,, he's basically violating the law. How can one claim it's against the law to follow the law? Makes no sense. I feel for you, having to be in a state where that happens. Not like we can all just ove whenever we want.
You are correct, too, that raising taxes for citizens is the only real way to pay for these criminals.
Its a 10th Amendment issue. If state law disagrees with fed law, state has authority as long as none of the other 10 amendments in the Bill of Rights are violated.
Immigration really should not be the big issue that everyone makes it out to be. The lack of jobs and over burdened welfare system is a problem caused by government melding with private sector. Re-establish a separation between business and state (just like church and state), and the economy should be healthy enough to handle immigration.
Gang violence is a problem with the justice system being too soft combined with the unconstitutional war on drugs.
We should never look to the feds to solve our problems.
