We know that people from South America want to come to America for a number of reasons. If we did a better job of facilitating them, then we have a better opportunity for control. Ellis Island provided this in the early 1900s and we could direct Immigrants there because they were arriving by ship. But today, if we provided transportation and facilities and personel placed strategically along the border, (make the process easier), would significantly fewer cross illegally? Now, someone reading this will cry out; Who is going to pay for it!, the old tactic to dismiss an idea without examining the possibilities and benefits and potential solutions. I have thought about funding and I do have ideas...but before we move on to the "whos gonna pay for it debate", would it work if it were here right now and what would it look like?
