Aliens may be admitted into the United States as immigrants or as nonimmigrants, depending on whether they have been granted lawful immigrant status.

I shed many tears watching the refugees trudging, exhausted, across hundreds of miles, with tiny children and a few possessions in hand. The “reception” they received was often callous, sometimes hateful.
The situation was inexcusable in an era when massive human migrations are common, and the world should be prepared to quickly care for and shelter massive numbers of people.
Until recently, most of our leaders and journalists made the issue of security along the U.S.-Mexican border the focus of failures of the immigration system. They ignored the fact that it has been estimated that some 40 percent of the illegal aliens present in the United States were aliens who violated the terms of their admission by overstaying, working on jobs they were not legally authorized to do, failing to attend schools for which they were admitted to attend or committing serious crimes.
