Challenge of illegal migration: how to respond?

Should illegal immigrants be allowed to stay in the US? If so, on what conditions? RT’s “The Resident” asked New Yorkers what they think the government's reaction should be to newcomers searching for a better life.

Many of those surveyed agree that the issue should be decided on an individual basis i.e. depending on what the immigrants bring to the country. Others, however, were categorical in their criticism, saying foreigners take jobs away from native citizens and thus should be prevented from doing so.
