The laws in place to allow immigrants into our nation is a flat out joke. It should not take 2-3 years to be approved for a visa and ten years to finally be approved as a US citizen. America was born on the backs of immigrants and to punish cities for allowing our tradition to continue is preposterous. In addition many times parents bring their children here, albeit illegally, and once those children are grown and realize they need papers, the process is ridiculously difficult. Even to the point of deportation for the children when they did not chose to come here to begin with.
