Are U.S immigration policies fair?

Background Info.

U.S immigration has been more of a now then ever before although it has been a problem since about 1965. There are two sides to this story; the southerners (foreign), and the U.S leaders with the citizens. The southerners have good reasoning when it comes to immigration; work conditions are very poor, they don't get paid nearly enough for their hard efforts in these harsh environments. While the U.S citizens and political leaders are against immigration. Less people are allowing immigrants into the country because they are illegal aliens and don't belong

Final thoughts

After researching this topic I believe the dangers overwhelm the benefits and just the fact that it could allow terrorists into the country. Especially after the ISIS threats. It would be so much easier for them to get in. For that reason I believe U.S immigration policies are totally fair. But I could see how someone could easily think otherwise. Like how it is basically torture in the eyes of the Mexicans. I mean with the pay rate and with the working environments, I agree with that. But the safety of the country is not worth comprising.
