They are granted legal status. They can then apply for a Permanent Resident Card and eventually be naturalized as U.S. citizens. Once approved they have every bit as much right to be here than anyone else.

That was in reply to a poster that said he preferred legal or illegal immigrants to American citizens who are Trump supporters. You agreed with them. I said that I don't prefer any foreigners whether they be here legally or illegally over my fellow countrymen no matter who they voted for. I never said that legal foreigners don't have a right to be here.

Pelosi should welcome illegals. Why pay unionized city workers to scrape poop off the sidewalk when an illegal will do it for less than minimum wage? The city of SF could save a fortune.

We’re talking about people requesting asylum, which I must constantly remind people on this forum is a legal form of immigration under U.S. law.

Not sure that asking for asylum is really an immigration path. Immigration to me is applying from one's country, filling out papers, paying fees, etc. and waiting till they are approved to come here. Asylum seekers do none of that but I'm not saying that if they are granted a hearing within our borders that makes them illegal either but they only have a temporary stay until their cases are heard unlike legal immigrants who are granted a permanent stay.

Immigration “to you” isn’t immigration according to U.S. law.

My point was that U.S. immigration law doesn’t necessarily agree with you.
