They need to highlight the costs, the negatives and explain that it is not only the drug dealers but the undocumented law breakers that are eroding our country.

They need to change public opinion and we will see the calls for Sanctuary cities whither away. Right now the Right is seen as a bunch of meanies that want to tear hard working families apart.
No, its up to The Left to adapt, because The Left support unlawful behavior.
And if The Left don't adapt, it makes no difference anyway.
The Law will prevail over The Left and America will win possession of its borders.

The time they are wasting to write these stupid bills should be used to draft and implement comprehensive immigration reform.

If talking about ending birthright unless at least 1 parent's a US citizen and so on, I def agree about immigration reform.

Reform of course in your mind being an amnesty.
Reform should be in raising the bar of who is acceptable.
Removing the redundant paper work.
Streamlining the process.
Increasing the penalty for violators.

Grant amnesty and strictly enforce the other points after. I'm sorry to disappoint you but 11M illegals will not be deported. We Americans would never accept that.

An immigrant who marries a U.S. citizen must apply for a green card (U.S. permanent residence). This is a long process involving many forms and documents. The immigrant can be refused entry if he or she is found inadmissible, perhaps because of a medical problem, criminal history, past immigration violations, or the U.S. immigration authorities' belief that your marriage is a fraud to get a green card.

After successfully obtaining a green card, the immigrant spouse can, after three years as a permanent resident, apply for U.S. citizenship. (This assumes that you're still married and living together when the immigrant applies.
If not, the waiting period changes to five years.

You are speaking for yourself. I have no problem with deporting all illegals and the sooner the better. They are criminals that took a shortcut and ignored and disrespected our immigration laws. Their names need to go in a file to NEVER be allowed to become American citizens. We have enough criminals in this country already. No immigration reform is needed to make it easier for lawless people. Amnesty was wrong the first time and encouraged the lawless. We need law and order and the illegals need to realize that actions have consequences.
