Well, the reality is that illegal immigration has been declining for the most part for the last decade.
It's still an issue. Yes, we need the immigration laws massively updated and refurbished.
No, we don't need to have open borders and "just let anybody come in."
Yes, we need to enforce the laws.
No, we don't need to unneccessarily separate families and imprison children.
As far as coming to the US? Like you, I think that problem is going to solve itself.
We are in the midst of a transformation. Parts of it will be violent. It will not turn out like anyone imagines.
Thanks for your words, Bo. You're one of the lights!

The Supreme Court ruled Thursday for the Trump administration in a key immigration case, determining that a federal law limiting an asylum applicant’s ability to appeal a determination that he lacked a credible fear of persecution from his home country does not violate the Constitution.
The ruling means the administration can deport some people seeking asylum without allowing them to make their case to a federal judge. The 7-2 ruling applies to those who fail their initial asylum screenings, making them eligible for quick deportation.

Before the comments of 'they don't have rights' I'd like to remind you all that everyone in America is protected by the constitution, regardless of immigration status.
What constitutional rights do undocumented immigrants have?
In the ruling, Justice Antonin Scalia wrote “it is well established that the Fifth Amendment entitles aliens to due process of law in deportation proceedings.”
Do undocumented immigrants have the right to a day in court? The Supreme Court answered in 1896
[A]ll persons within the territory of the United States are entitled to the protection guarantied by those amendments, and that even aliens shall not be held to answer for a capital or other infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law.

Just make their day in court short, like 3 days. Breaking immigration is only a mistermeanor as I understand it. Terrrible.
