"Why don't they just come legally?"

A HYPOTHETICAL CASE STUDY

35 year old Dreamer, #DACA expiring Mar 2018. Came to US with parents at age 4. No criminal record. Never left US.
Goes to see an immigration lawyer his family's been working with for years.

Privileged, because most cannot afford counsel. Though they're "lawbreakers," the government doesn't provide them lawyers.

Let's figure out how to help our Dreamer!
"Leave and come back legally."

Leaving will trigger a 10 year bar to reentry. A waiver (forgiveness) exists, but our Dreamer doesn't qualify. He has no kids or spouse who are US citizens or green card holders. An uncle is, but that doesn't help.
