ABSTRACT
An illegal or undocumented immigrant is an issue that has bedeviled Congress for the past few years. It is an issue that has become a high profile focus of the states and particularly the states that are most effected by illegal immigration such as California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. This is not a new issue, and solutions in the past, such as amnesty, have not solved the problem of an ever growing influx of illegal immigrants across the Mexican border. This paper looks at the convoluted issue of illegal immigration and the inadequate Congressional response to resolving this issue.
