Our immigration system is "broken".
I have a different idea. If you are an illegal immigrant, and you miss your family, go back where you came from.
You come to America legally -- we welcome you. That's great. You want your family here? They can get in line.
The immigration system isn't broken, but the border is. Border security is broken.
If you broke the law to get into this country, you are a criminal. You don't have any respect for our laws or the rule of law. Why would I want you here? Odds are, when we have some other law you don't like, you will feel free to break that one, too.
We understand that you came to this country because your own country is messed up. There's a good chance it's messed up because there is no respect for the rule of law by the people in power.
That is not an import we want.
You're not that important. We can get by without you.
