Sure, and if we all trace our roots back far enough, we'll find immigrants, some legal, some not. Some would go so far as to say earth's original settlers were interplanetary aliens.

I absolutely agree with you. Yes, a really large proportion of undocumented immigrants is a huge problem that we must fight and eliminate with absolutely moral and legal solutions. One of the important aspects in this matter is a concept that I recently read about at https://samplius.com/free-essay-examples/daca/ Deferred Arrival Measures for Children, better known as DACA, is a policy that allows people who were brought to the United States as children to obtain a permit, which is renewed every two years. This permit protects them from deportation and allows them to obtain a work permit. Do you think this will give a positive result?

One could argue that European immigration to the Americas was due in part to a failed immigration policy of the Native Peoples...😎
