Should Illegals Be Shocked Upon Deportation?

With the new shift in deportation, we saw the Latino community flip out when a woman who was in the US since 14 was deported.
This is one sample case: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2017/02/10/mexico-warns-citizens-new-reality-after-undocumented-mom-deported-arizona/97750450/
When a person knows that they are in the US illegally and have been for a long time, I lose sensitivity when they have not taken steps to become a citizen. I know that the process is not easy, but you have to at least work on it.
It is not a secret that I despise T-Rump, but this is an area where I support his position.
If you are an illegal alien, please start the process to getting your green card and hopefully citizenship. We want you here, but you have to do it in the correct way.

Immigration, both legal and illegal, is bad for the economy and job growth.

A study by the Center for Immigration Studies, as reported by the Washington Post, has echoed reports done during the Reagan administration, proving that immigration is bad for the economy. All job gains since the year 2000 have gone to immigrants, while native born worker unemployment numbers continue to increase. With the current immigration reform bill on the House floor including a “Path to Citizenship for all Illegal Immigrants” should we be inviting in more job seekers when the present population can’t find jobs?

How do we help Mexico fix itself?

We have major problems in this country with illegal aliens.
The largest source of illegals appears to be Mexico and her Southern neighbors.
With the various governments being so corrupt, how do we help them straighten themselves out?

Obviously we cannot afford to be throwing money around, but would we be able to invest in programs with the goal of slowing (hopefully stopping) the flow of illegals?

Where do we start? No, the simplistic approach of shut down the borders is not a valid answer. We need a more productive discussion.
