No arguments found. Add one!
There are two extreme and opposite positions here.
The reasonable solution is in between.
1. Build the wall to stop the illegal immigration.
2. Deport all illegals who commit serious crimes.
3. 5 - 10 - and 15 year prison sentences for returning deportees.
4. Let the rest stay, give them visas, let them pay taxes. No vote.
5. Those who wish, may take their proper place in line and apply for citizenship.

I think you make some fine points, specifically 4 and 5, which in my opinion would be very beneficial for this economy and its people. My main concerns with 1-3 would be the cost of both deportation, building the wall and keeping people in prisons. I think creating a form of visa that would get them to pay taxes would help cover some of the cost but not all however giving them an opportunity to apply for citizenship without fear of deportation would drastically decrease the amount of illegals here.

I forgot you're the resident trailer thrash American who's home schooled by grandma and your education stops there ...
Your own US state department has a lot to say on it ; how do you keep getting things consistently wrong ?
The U.S. Department of Agriculture states that, “about half of the hired workers employed in U.S. crop agriculture were unauthorized, with the overwhelming majority of these workers coming from Mexico.” The USDA has also warned that, “any potential immigration reform could have significant impacts on the U.S. fruit and vegetable industry.” From the perspective of National Milk Producers Federation in 2009, retail milk prices would increase by 61 percent if its immigrant labor force were to be eliminated.
Echoing the Department of Labor, the USDA, and the National Milk Producers Federation, agricultural labor economist James S. Holt made the following statement to Congress in 2007: “The reality, however, is that if we deported a substantial number of undocumented farm workers, there would be a tremendous labor shortage.”
In terms of overall numbers, The Department of Labor reports that of the 2.5 million farm workers in the U.S., over half (53 percent) are illegal immigrants. Growers and labor unions put this figure at 70 percent.
OUCH , you truly are a thick fuck , do you ever research anything ?
The nonsense I come up with comes from The pew research centre which a fair proportion of educated people do tend to accept as pretty accurate :)
