Why are ILLEGAL Mexicans still living in America ILLGALLY ( as in broke the law).?

I dont understand this If you come here illegally that means you VIOLATED AMERICAN LAWS. So if that iss the case why are they not sent to jail and charged like any other law violation? Americans will be just fine without ILLEGAL people. So dont say " We take the hard jobs that nobody wants" Just come to America the LEGAL way. dont break our laws and then ask for benefits from my tax dollar.

The only way to stop illegals coming to the US to work and not pay taxes on it is to start fining the people who employ them. The more illegals they hire the bigger the fine. They say that they take the jobs we won't, then they can pay taxes on the money they earn just like we all have to.

Marijuana was illegalized without any testing or research done to actually help control the Mexican population here in the US back in the 1930s.
