    AILA doesn't benefit from "more immigration",

    The American Immigration Lawyers Association is made up of immigration lawyers, and you are trying to convince me that those same immigration lawyers do not personally benefit from increased levels in immigration, and do not personally lose from decreased levels in immigration.

    Right now you're basically deported right away, no lawyer, no case nothing

    Yet according to my latest numbers of the 316 illegal immigrants arrested at Bianco, 116 of the illegal immigrants are still in the U.S. fighting deportation, and 16 have been granted legal status -- two years after the raid.

      because they have lived here already. People who jump the border are deported right away.
      Also our system has an emphasis on family members, meaning that those people who were granted citizenship probably had LEGAL CITIZEN CHILDREN.  What would you do with a mother and her four year old LEGAL CITIZEN CHILD? Seperate them and put the child on Welfare?
      16 out of 316 isn't bad numbers considering DHS actually deported an American citizens by accident in the Bianco raid. Some of those people I'm sure, were mistakenly held and than later released.
      The raid in Bianco had people from several countries. If DHS catches people from El Salvador should we dump them in Mexico? No, we can't legally.
      That's why there are 116 "fighting deportation". We're trying to figure out what to do with them.  And while that happens the government fits the bill.
