There are disagreements on Immigration issues because some think that the efforts to control immigration are inherently anti-immigrant. Others, including the US Commission on Immigration Reform, think that it is both a right and a responsibility of a democratic society to manage immigration so that it serves the national interest.

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 given priority.

And there are disagreements on how to control the US borders, on allowing children of illegal immigrants to attend public school, on allowing children born in the US to an illegal immigrant mother to have automatic citizenship, registration of illegal immigrants along with having them pay taxes and learn English, and holding employers accountable when they deliberately hire and exploit undocumented workers.
