why doesn't america enforce its immigration laws?
there are millions of aliens in the united states. there shouldn't even be one.
why are countries like japan and israel allowed to follow their immigration laws but we americans aren't.
israel treats its illegal alien population with extreme brutality no reason we can't do the same here in america.

The history of the United States, a country in North America, began with the settlement of Indigenous people before 15,000 BC. Numerous cultures formed. The arrival of Christopher Columbus in the year of 1492 started the European colonization of the Americas. Most colonies formed after 1600. By the 1760s, thirteen British colonies contained 2.5 million people along the Atlantic coast east of the Appalachian Mountains.
Fast forward to current times and "We The People" from different lineage, race, etc. strive to show the world that we have strength and fortitude to embrace all who come here.

Israel allows workers to cross its wall to take jobs. It lets everyone come legally if they legitimately need to come.
The U.S. can't enforce its laws because its laws don't allow enough immigrants to come legally. Israel's laws do.
Japan is a different. Japan really can't enforce it's laws, and is effectively dooming most of its population in the attempt. Because of inadequate immigration and a low rate birth rate, the number of workers in Japan is expected to drop too low to care for all the elderly in Japan. They are trying to develop robot caregivers so that their citizens don't die when this happens, but I don't have a lot of hope for the project. Japan is an excellent example of the dangers of not having immigration, a problem that the U.S. also faces.

The US is built on immigrants, who almost wiped out the original people.

First realize that what is currently happening is the global Left is encouraging and even paying people in Central America to travel to the USA and enter by making false claims for asylum or refugee status. Hundreds of thousands of people are doing at RIGHT NOW and it is overwhelming the immigration authorities.
Another factor is Obama deliberately left unfilled hundreds of immigration judge positions, and he did that so there would be a huge backlog of cases. People can only be held in detention facilities for X days without a hearing, so when the time limit is reached they have to be released. They get a court date to appear for their hearing, but only about 3% attend their court date. The other 97% vanish into their ethnic groups and just live as illegals.
Both political parties are at fault for allowing the gaps in the employment laws to continue.
Some Republicans have corporate masters who like being able to hire illegal aliens, it is not many, but there are enough of them so that even when the Republicans had the majorities in both houses of Congress the ones with corporate masters could block reforms.
The Democrat Party wants to be able to use the millions upon millions of illegal aliens to overthrow our two-party system so they can replace it with a one party (Democrat) dictatorship. It is treason in slow motion. .

The US doesn't enforce its immigration laws because both political parties are owned by the CEO class. And the CEO class needs as many illegals as possible, in order to drive down wages for everyone.

American was created by immigrants, legal and otherwise. Most of us haven't forgotten that, or the ideals that this country was formed on as written on our Statue of Liberty. So if you're a critically thinking person who believes in holding one's self to a higher standard, perhaps you can understand the conflict on this issue.

Immigration is good for business; good for diversification of the human gene pool (helps share good genes) etc.
Cultural diversity helps foster creative problem solving, as people from different backgrounds see the world from a different POV, thus ensuring that there is a greater overall view-scape in that multicultural society.
Increases in population generally equates to greater economy, as greater population density means more competition for work, and a better employment situation for businesses (*not so much for workers who have to fight harder to get and keep employment).
So overall, the US government doesn't want to restrict immigration because ... companies don't want to restrict immigration and companies have the most influence upon government because they provide the US federation as a whole with economic activity.
As for Israel, do not forget that they mainly restrict the movement of Palestinians, not immigrants. Actually, Israel has been letting many Jewish migrants from Africa over the decades *(and elsewhere) to bolster the Jewish population with the area.
If you want to live in Israel and you hold qualifications etc., it's not much harder to gain immigration than in the US.
The less qualified you are, the harder it generally is to get a legal immigration status. This is partly because there are far more low-skilled economic migrants than higher skilled ones, so the competition for entry is higher.
Like many things in life, the system restricts or grants because of situation.
BTW, brutality against a culture or a peoples is a great way to start a terrorist movement.

It is pathetic when left wingers bring Melania Trump or some Europeans overstaying the visa. Even when it comes to legal immigration, it is hispanics, africans and asians who get overwhelming majority of the visas. Therefore, they are more likely to overstay than some handful of Europeans. 1000 illegals sneaking in everyday. Far left wants to grant them citizenship.
Israel has a wall and they are very strict when it comes to illegal immigration. Yes. It works for them. They care about their country and their people. They depend only on their Israeli citizens for vote.
@ Yoda - You are a dingbat. How is any of your rant related to enforcing immigration laws and border controls ? You can't use what happened centuries ago to have open borders today.

Ask Melania Trump. She illegally overstayed her work visa. Fortunately had a sexual affair with a married man who illegally purchased a "genius" visa for her so he could illegally import her immigrant parents and illegally provide them all with American citizenship.
