We cannot compare illegal to legal. Illegal immigrants are not getting gc every year. After 20 years they are getting a chance. That too govt has to do something. It is impractical to deport everyone. That is the reason for USA is trying to resolve the issue.
Legal immigrants are not asking one time deal compared to illegal. Probably if we ask one time 1 millon gc + 140k gc every year that can be easy to achieve. But we are asking unlimited H1b and unlimited gc every year. That is not possible and not practical. Also jobs for legals are just 10 to 20% in numbers compared to illegals(low tech jobs). We also refuse to address some of the issues in H1b. We are not givng solution for slow economy(that time number of H1b and Gc numbers should be reduced based on supply and demand). So there is no surprise there is oppostion for legal immigration
