Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
"A key element of the Border Patrol’s ongoing efforts to deter illegal entry was the implementation and expansion of Expedited Removal to all Border Patrol Sectors. It is a removal process, which requires the mandatory detention of select classes of illegal migrants who can be removed from the U. S. without recourse to an Immigration Hearing. This class includes aliens who are present in the U.S. without having been admitted or paroled following inspection by an immigration officer at a designated POE, who are encountered by an immigration officer within 100 air miles of the U.S. border, and who are unable to establish their physical presence in the U.S. for the two-week period prior to the date of encounter."
