Why is the issue of illegal immigration a good example of the intergovernmental relations mess in the US?
Illegal immigration has made many US citizens jobless, as most of the low-paid and unskilled jobs are taken by the illegal immigrants. The crime rates have also increased due to drug trafficking and other acts. This puts the life of innocent citizens at jeopardy. They cannot live safely in their own native country.
There are disagreements on immigration issues because some think that the efforts to control immigration are inherently anti-immigrant.

There are also disagreements on the number of immigrants that can be be absorbed into the US and the categories of immigrants who should be…
No. Having a child in the United States does NOT affect the parent's immigration status. Once the child is 21, that child can petition for the parent to be given a green card, but the mere fact of an illegal having children who are US citizens does not confer any change in immigration status for that illegal alien. Thus, the illegal alien parent can easily be deported. The child may also be forced to leave…

Who is responsible for housing illegal aliens pending a hearing or deportation back to their home country?
There are very, very few US citizens who want to stop immigration. Many of us want to put an end to illegal immigration. We are a nation of immigrants; we all have immigrant backgrounds. Immigration is and always has beena good thing. But people shouldn't think that you can become a US citizen just by entering the country. There aren't many nations on earth where citizenship is open to anyone who simply arrives there.
Immigration itself is positive, and nothing but positive. Every single person in the US has immigrant background at some point, if you consider that when the US was established, there was no person for whom it was not a new nation. That's the positive. The negative is that illegal immigration is a violation of federal law. If I violated the law, I would expect to be held accountable.
Immigration has been shaping the US since the 18th century onwards. Economy, productivity, efficiency and development of exceptional skills are the positive effects of the immigration. However, it has also put the environmental resources and health care, education system under severe strain. Another troubling thing about US immigration is the illegal immigrants problem. They usurp the jobs of the legals and the citizens thus leaving them unemployed.
When it comes to immigration, US is the most preferred destination. This is because the country offers a secure life, job and a better place to live in. Illegal alien problem is due to the fact that many people (economically down) from Mexico, Canada cross the borders with the hope of a better future in the US. Either they are ignorant of the complex immigration process or they are not bothered to enter legally.
