I believe the law should be followed. If mass immigration were legal I'd have no complaint.
An influx of a foreign culture threatening to marginalize American culture including language.
An influx of a minority group threatening to make my ethnic group the minority.
The impact of illegal immigration on the American economy.
The impact of illegal immigration on the treasury.
If fear illegal immigrants will exhibit criminal/violent behavior

A lot of these apply for me, though the wording of them are questionable.
I think the law should be followed, and by ignoring or excusing those that don't follow the law it is an insult and afront to those that have as well as putting a wrench in a system that is meant to work in a particular way. However, I don't think mass immigration is a good thing and would complain about that; just not on the basis of it being a legal violation (Since it wouldn't be in such a case).
I do think an influx of foreign cultures that are not looking to assimilate into american culture in a "mixing bowl" style but are instead seeking a multi-cultural approach where there is a distinct desir to be IN America but to still live AS a [fill in country of origin here]. A prominent example of what I'm talking about is UFC Heavy Weight Champion Cain Valezquez, who despite being a United States Citizen comes out with the Mexican Flag draped around him routinely (it's common for many fighters to come out in their countries flag). I think the "mixing bowl" notion of America is a powerful one, but a true "multicutural" one that isn't AT LEAST based on the notion that those who have came here are american first and foremost, and their "heritage" is second to that, is not.
I don't really care that whites are becoming a minority in this country.
I do have an issue with the potential drain on the American economy and the general impact on the mindset relating to jobs in the US. It saddens me to both see our unemployment numbers and then here the BS about illegals doing jobs "americans don't want".
The illegal behavior thing I don't really care much about, as much for a difficulty dealing with illegal activity potentially due to their lack of presense in the system possibly causing issues with it. I'd be more worried about the national security aspect of it, with it being necessary for a country to have an understanding of who is coming in and out of the country.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
I think that there should be a process (easier than the current) in place to allow people from other countries to become citizens of our country. Those who don't follow the process should be immediately deported without exception.

Just keep looking for the mushroom cloud. For one. Who knows who is getting through.
It destroyed south Florida. Seems no one remembers the Cuban influx of criminals.
other - my biggest problem is that it's illegal
