Illegal Immigration

Illegal Immigration has recently become quite a hot topic, particularly with the increasing visibility of the Minuteman Project. Illegal immigrants tend to enter the United States in search of jobs and for family connections. I've heard conflicting findings regarding the economic impact of immigration. However, the economic impact really doesn't factor into the issue for me. What grates on my "law and order" side is the idea of people entering this country in violation of our national laws. However, I am moved by the hardships that illegal immigrants face and I hate the idea of deporting someone who managed to create a good life here.
