Can't we just make it easier to do it legally instead of with no control?

Yeah, its called Dept of Immigration. If you call them, email them, go to their website, go in person, they will tell you exactly what you need to do legaly to come work here and/or become a citizen. IF you pay a immigration lawyer you are TOTALLY wasting your money. They make immigration look scarey in the movies but its the customer service branch. Border Patrol, ICE, etc are the law enforcement division. Immigration is there to help.

On STX, speak with Mrs. Peterson. I don't know what her title is, but she is the most customer friendly person I have ever run into. We did my daughter-in-laws green card without benefit(?) of a lawyer. It took just about 6 months from sending in the first paperwork to getting the green card. And that included one month where they tried to send the paperwork back to our PHYSICAL ADDRESS.

This would make a good 60 minutes type news report. What DOES it really take for someone from Mexico to be able to work here legally?

It's a bit of an oxymoron for a country that enshrines the natural rights of people to be free in its Constitution to even have the concept of a "legal" vs "illegal" individual. I can understand minimal controls to keep criminals out but I get the sense that it is currently very difficult for honest and hardworking people not born behind the US side of the line in the sand to exercise their rights as human beings (and no welfare is not one of those rights) on the US side of that line. Maybe I'm wrong, hence why I think a news documentary report would be interesting.
