The Department of Homeland Security is systematically reviewing thousands of pending immigration cases and moving to dismiss those filed against suspected illegal immigrants who have no serious criminal records, according to several sources familiar with the efforts.
Richard Rocha, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman, said Tuesday that the review is part of the agency's broader, nationwide strategy to prioritize the deportations of illegal immigrants who pose a threat to national security and public safety. Rocha declined to provide further details.

Could not agree with you more! It also strikes me that it's become by and large "politically incorrect" to express opinions that endorse tighter immigration control. It seems these days you'd be better off in some cases saying "I hate babies" than to admit you think we have an illegal immigration problem.

Plenty of people worried about their jobs can see the problem. It's just that they can do nothing about it. They cannot change the policy and some will indeed lose their jobs (that have not yet lost their jobs) to these illegals and more or less have their lives ruined. But the US government wants that to happen.
wish them all the well as long as they follow the guidelines for doing so.
