There's no need to give those who actually entered illegally citizenship; they should be given a modified greencard that is ineligible for eventual naturalization.  That, however, should not prevent their children who were brought in as minors with their parents, from being able to naturalize.

Probably a practical measure, but it won't satisfy those who think they can all be deported.

I realize that.  However, one can only hope that with enough patient, hopefully persuasive, talk, those whose reactions are based on sound-bites rather than reflection can be persuaded to be a little more practical.  After all, I cannot think of anything as impractical, or as misguided, as trying to round up millions of people and herd them like cattle.  In fact, if I recall anything from history, that sort of strategy has been pursued only by the likes of Pol Pot, Mao, Stalin and, of course, Hitler.  I would hope that, when it comes down to brass tacks, most Americans are loathe to find themselves in such "august" company.
