What are your thoughts on illegal immigrants?

Before answering, I want to share this story. My mom came into the country legally. Her family filled out forms, and waited patiently for over 20 years. When the time came to move, her family was split apart; a few relatives are still waiting for their turn to enter the country today. She paid her dues and supported her family on two jobs. So every time she hears about illegal immigrants getting rights to vote or flying under the radar by using financial aid, she fumes. Her problem with this is simple, “Why do they get a free pass, when I didn’t?” Families coming illegally risk deportation and uprooting. If done the right way, there would be no risks and they wouldn’t have to live in secrecy. So what are your thought?
