The immigrants come to America for a better life, and very few of the immigrants are criminals.

No wall!

Alexis de Tocqueville said that one of the great things about America is that people could start fresh in America. No matter your social standing in Europe, you could rise to the top in America. And even former prison convicts found success in the New World. You could clean yourself up, and study, and wear nice clothes, and work hard, and rise in social standing. Just because you start out poor, does not mean that you have to stay poor in America.

Disney is working on a new movie about a Mexican who came to California to pick tomatoes, and now he is one of the top brain surgeons in the world. He was poor, and now he is wealthy and respected.

Not all Mexican immigrants/illegal immigrants become brain surgeons in the US;

“He showed up every day, and he did his job. He was patted on his back. They turned a blind eye to the reality of documentation,” Richards said.

Investigators say they believe Rivera was in the country illegally when he abducted Tibbetts as she went on an evening jog, killed her and dumped her body in a cornfield.

Best to seal the borders and make sure that people already in the US, and who are seeking to enter the US legally, really are who they say they are.

"Legal immigrants" and "illegal immigrants" are two different things.
