How would you all resolve the illegal immigration issue?

Comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship. Folks are already here and there are several sectors of the economy that depend on them: agriculture, construction, hospitality, etc. Iíd rather they be allowed to come out into the light as productive, taxpaying Americans.

Default Obama officials concede role in slow $20 Harriet Tubman bill rollout: report

Obama officials concede role in slow $20 Harriet Tubman bill rollout: report

'After Democrat lawmakers and commentators spent months hammering the Trump administration for supposedly delaying the release of a $20 bill featuring abolitionist Harriet Tubman, several officials appointed by President Barack Obama have reportedly admitted that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has followed the Obama timeline for producing the new currency. ...

But a current "high-ranking government official" appointed by Obama, as well as a former official, confirmed to The Washington Post that the Tubman bill had "had "always been scheduled for release toward the end of the next decade." ...'

There is no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there are instances in which that will happen this time.
..."

My answer would be start putting money back into those countries. If you want to stop them from coming here, make it so their home is worth staying at. But I would also not spend insane time debating/working on it, as I see much larger threats to our country than illegal immigration. We need to address global warming and do it in a big way, and fast. So I would invest back into the countries, and move right on to real threats to our country and planet.

How would you put money into Mexico? How do you make sure that another sovereign nation uses that money appropriately? You can address climate change and immigration.
