Illegal immigrants in the United States are generally considered - even no one in the political class admits to that publicly - are a lower caste of people.
Here is another article from the Business Insider, speaking to tough conditions into which illegal immigrants often find themselves. Now the U.S. government is working on deporting literally millions of them. Some advocates claim such action is done too fast to allow for illegal immigrants to hire lawyers to properly protect their rights.
Government sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, have said the new campaign by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency marks an expansion from mostly targeting individuals to pursuing families with undocumented members who have already been ordered to leave.
I say maybe. Nobody seems to be talking that the USCIS rules don't offer many options for the illegals to legitimize their being in the United States. Here is a review of how can illegal immigrant become legal. These options are scarce. Green card through marriage seems like a viable path, assuming one's immigration violations are not too heinous. Green card seekers' asylum claims are hard to prepare and prove; they must meet certain requirements spelled out in the immigration laws. Immigrants' language barrier doen't help either.
Once deported, unfortunately, these folks may not be allowed into the United States for up to 10 years and their prospects in seeking better lives for themselves and their families drop precipitously.

The article below goes into detail about how one's stance - and changes in such stance - can affect one's political future. This fact highlights the fact that an immigration reform is needed for the United States. Needed badly.
In the US, the country founded by immigrants, a path to permanent residency and citizenship is too restrictive. Often unrealistic. One can argue the broken immigration system is the reason behind such large number of illegal immigrants. Why not reform the system to make it hard and reasonably expensive but still possible to immigrate? Reviewing migrants' paperwork will allow the US to assign the newcomers social security numbers, request acknowledgement of the tax and employment laws and possibly charge special immigration fees for the benefit of enjoying living and working for wages available here in the US? Perhaps, "regulate" vs. "forbid and restrict" is the solution to the immigration problems in America?
