Very much the same as any immigrant wishing to obtain permanent resident or citizenship status. Please visit the United States Citizenship And Immigration Services website for information pertaining to personal circumstances. http://www.uscis.gov

About a half-a-million immigrants enter the U. S. every year by illegal entry and border crossing card violations. There are also some immigrants that overstay their visas and become illegal.

Children can be citizens on their own. For example- illegal alien gives birth in the U.S., the illegal mother is still illegal but the child would be a U.S. citizen.

No there is not a statute of limitation for immigrants. If they are in the country illegally, they can be arrested and deported at any time. Someone can't sneak into the country and hide in order to become legal.

It's not actually illegal, but it's also not especially likely.

If you are talking about an specific number of illegal immigrants you know personally, Well there is not much you can do. You have to be a company/corporatio n to sponsor unknown illegals. It is also almost impossible to get employment visas for uneducated, unskilled immigrants.

Europe has become the new home for many millions of immigrants, legal and illegal, from other parts of the world. A substantial part of the population growth is from these immigrants and their offspring.

The term "amnesty" in US politics, and presumably when 2016 Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz uses it, typically refers to the idea of giving the Illegal Immigrants in the United States some sort of pardon for the crime of illegal border crossing. It can be as minimal as ceasing the deportation proceedings of Illegal Immigrants, but is usually a reference to a "Path to Citizenship", where the Illegal Immigrants will be able to apply to become US citizens under certain conditions set out by law.

Unless the illegal immigrants are able to provide enough evidence to attain refugee or asylum status, it is IMPOSSIBLE for an illegal immigrant to become a citizen under current US law. For example, I knew a good man that had 3 kids, a wife, and a stable job; yet, he was still be deported when pulled over for a traffic violation. However, they CAN go back to their country of origin, apply for a work visa wait a few years and become a resident and then go through the naturalization process.

Its not illegal to have but it does become illegal when used.

It should. It would give the state a little more money. Not to mention that it would reduce the number of illegal immigrants.

The issue of illegal immigration is a sensitive one. Many citizens of a nation feel that deportation is appropriate for illegal immigrants, as it is both mandated by law and viewed as a personal right of the nation to permit only those who pass qualifications to become naturalized. Amnesty is generally frowned on by citizens, as they view it as capitulation or giving the illegal immigrants a free ride to citizenship status. Additional problems occur as illegal immigrants do not pay taxes but use the social programs those taxes are designed to pay for. This can result in exacerbating economic problems.

One of the issues that arise by granting illegal immigrants citizenship is that it would mean increased financial burden for the legitimate ones. BY providing amnesty, automatically opens benefits such as SSN and others. But some people favor this law by saying they are also human beings, why cant the government give them an opportunity to live.
