The problem with illegal immigration is not that they are stealing “our jobs” (as if you have a claim to a particular job), because I bring skills to the table that no illegal can match. No, the only jobs illegals are taking are unskilled labor jobs in the agriculture, service, and construction industries. If you are being replaced by an illegal, it is likely because you have no real skills and are doing a job that a trained monkey could do. You should have paid attention in that math class instead of showing off to your friends that you could smash a can on your head, or that you could burp the National Anthem or down a beer bong in 3 seconds flat.
The REAL problem with illegal immigration is that they are drawn here by free money from the American taxpayer, and thus increase the amount of money that the government needs to keep the program going. This creates an even larger dependent class that will vote in even more politicians who will steal freedoms to get more money to give away, ad nauseum, ad infinitum.
The way to stop illegal immigration is to stop the gravy train. Stop giving money away, and it is no longer as lucrative to come here and live off the funds from Uncle Sugar.

When you pay for something, you tend to get a lot of it, is economic axiom.
When you remove the incentive (money), the activity will stop.
The same goes for all of the "welfare" programs available to citizens and legal immigrants.
Tighten the restrictions and a lot fewer people will find that they "need" public assistance.
Ben Franklin even talked about that.
"I am for doing good to the poor, but…I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed…that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer."
