The Us already has some of the most liberal immigration policies in the world. I'm not a conspiracy fan, but this sole fixation on the US as if we're the ones who are backwards in allowing immigration comes off to me as a way of getting more people friendlier to the idea of weakening US solidarity on the voter roles.

There was a Youtube video of a TED Talk where a guy points out the impossibility of fixing "broken" countries by allowing unchecked immigration into the US. Yet here we are, more and more illegal immigrants every day are moving in and the country doesn't care that it's playing havoc with security and peace in high immigrant areas.

On Wednesday, ICE Union president Chris Crane told PRNewswire: “Any American concerned about immigration needs to brace themselves for what's coming. This is just one of many new ICE policies in queue aimed at stopping the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws in the United States. Unable to pass its immigration agenda through legislation, the Administration is now implementing it through agency policy.”

Crane continued: “ICE and the Administration have excluded our union and our agents from the entire process of developing policies, it was all kept secret from us, we found out from the newspapers. ICE worked hand-in-hand with immigrants rights groups, but excluded its own officers.”

...

Crane said: “The desires of foreign nationals illegally in the United States were the framework from which these policies were developed. The result is a means for every person here illegally to avoid arrest or detention, as officers we will never know who we can or cannot arrest.”

Perhaps, most troubling are the “secret” orders under which ICE agents are reportedly now operating.

“Our officers are already under orders not to make arrests or even talk to foreign nationals in most cases unless another agency has already arrested them; you won't find that written in any public ICE policy,” Crane said.

The notion that the US should shape its policies to help fix other countries is anti-American.

The purpose of a free country's immigration policies is to welcome individuals willing to escape broken countries, not fix anything. That is why the US started out by welcoming immigrants, and moved away from it as it became less and less free in general: to help individuals by giving them a refuge from tyranny and unchecked bureaucracy. Bureacracy like an ICE agency and their employees' union.

Are they talking about fixing "our" broken country or other countries?

Gotta love Examiner stories though...
Of course, the DREAM Act and so-called Comprehensive Immigration Reform (amnesty) have been defeated many times in Congress, due to public outrage.
Actually, there's pretty broad support for immigration reform, even among Republicans. Fox News conducted a bipartisan poll last year about it:

A strong majority of Republican voters favor a path to citizenship

In December 2011, Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and Republican pollster Shaw & Company Research conducted a poll of 911 registered voters for Fox News. The poll has a margin of error of +/-3% across the full sample,+/-5% among the Democratic subsample and +/-5.5% among the Republican subsample.

Two-thirds of voters support a path to citizenship; less than 20% support mass deportation. When asked “what government policy should be toward illegal immigrants currently in the United States,” 66% percent of voters said that the government should “allow illegal immigrants to remain in the country and eventually qualify for U.S. citizenship” if they meet requirements including a background check and learning English. Only 19% of respondents elected to “send all illegal immigrants back to their home country.”(Thirteen percent of voters supported a guest worker program.)[Fox News]

A strong majority of Republican voters favor a path to citizenship. Among Republican voters, 57% chose the path to citizenship option described above. Only 26% of Republican voters said that the government should send all illegal immigrants back to their home countries.
