This would be when they turn to crime.

Exactly. Take care of us first.

They've already turned to crime. They have gangs (MS-13, for example). They drive drunk or drive without licenses or insurance, or all three. They engage in ID theft or use fake SSNs, both of which leave the true owners of those SSNs in a world of hurt. Not to mention many of them engage in welfare fraud.

If we make it impossible for them to find work or access any freebies and they turn to crime, then they go to jail and then get deported.

That ALSO scares me that they might get so comfortable with their families that they just end up living on the lam and not show up to their hearings. the gov't has already proved inept in dealing with even those who commit the least crimes.

I think people who want to help so bad like you should do it through non-profit organizations, red cross, or something like that in addition to volunteering. I don't think taxes should be raised, especially for this. Money sent overseas is enough and there are plenty of domestic issues to take care of first.

Border patrol says that over 90% don't show up for their hearings after 15 days.
Yet they keep giving them these "permisos" and releasing them into society.

Yet medicare, social security and veteran's benefit funds are all in the red and the cry is to cut those programs.

You'd pay for taxes so that illegals are taken care of yet approve of cuts to programs for citizens.
Seems very anti-American to me.

But I guess that is the goal for the globalists.

And then "oh, poor people, they should be DACA recipients!" and you will have those new permanent residents requesting GCs for the rest of their families. Again, this country has limited resources, many domestic issues already, and an aging population. Not the time to receive people that don't even get proper health screenings (And don't even get me started on the slap in the face received by legal immigrants... )

What most governments would do, would be to put bureaucrats at the border, tell the child immigrants to get in line A, and say to each immigrant, "please show your papers." Then, when the child immigrant says "I don't have any papers," the bureaucrat would say "please go to the end of line B." And the child immigrant would grow up in line B.

Does the USA have a shortage of bureaucrats or what?
