Illegal mexican Immigrant
It's hard to adjust to a new life in a different country when you have lived the majority of your life in another country. If you've worked hard, paid taxes and happen to be a decent citizen, then why deport them to a new country? How would you feel if you are working hard, paying your taxes, and contributing to society but being denied citizenship?
The life of an Illegal immigrant...
Life as it is , is already difficult for a legal citizen, now imagine the life of an illegal immigrant. Illegal immigrants are not allowed access to the same benefits of a U.S citizen. Illegal immigrants usually work in the most difficult jobs and get paid minimum wage and they can't complain or ask for a higher price due to the fact that they don't qualify. In most cases they come to America for a better life leaving their loved ones behind and they don't have anyone but themselves in this country.
Illegal Immigrants population

In 2012 Australia received a total of nearly 15,800 asylum (the protection granted by a nation to someone who has left their native country as a political refugee) claims, up to 37% from the previous year.
The country's Department of Immigration and Citizenship states that the Migration Act of 1958 requires any non-citizen or person which is unlawfully in Australia to be detained.
People without a valid visa are considered unlawful--including children. Migrant children, especially asylum seekers, have been detained in immigration detention centers for months or even years.
The Australian Government has responded to human rights complaints by removing children from detention centers and into community detention, or local housing. However, as of last February, there were still 1,062 children in the detention centers.
Amid all the controversy, reports indicated that preparations have been made to bring children back to the notorious Curtis Immigration Detention Centre, which closed down in 2002 due to riots and protests. Re-opened in 2011 and currently holds only adult single men. A portion of the center could be declared an "alternate place of detention," which the government does not define as detention center.
