Your position really isn't much different

from what Rand is talking about. He's talking about working out a deal with the Democrats (They do control the Senate.) - they give us tighter border security, we give them legalization for law-abiding illegals who are already here. Rand does not support letting violent criminals who are illegal stay in this country, much less get put on a path to citizenship. We can't leave things as they are, otherwise, the illegals will keep coming and the only way to get tighter border security and deportation of alien criminals is to give them something they want on this issue. I'm not really for legalizing adults who came here themselves, but, I do get the argument about people brought here as kids. The important thing though, it to make sure that border is airtight while we're legalizing them and make the process as quick as possible.

Once the current illegals are weeded out and the law-abiding ones legalized (not automatically citizenized), there should be a no tolerance policy. You sneak into the country illegally, you get deported - end of story.
