Here's what I see to be the core issues for discussion. Feel free to add your own take on this list:
1. Which/how many individuals should be given the opportunity for citizenship? What should the conditions for citizenship be?
2. Should existing domestic policies be reevaluated in light of the large number of foreign-born individuals already in the country, "legally" or otherwise? What changes will be required once a proper course of action on Issue #1 is decided upon?
3. One big wall or a series of smaller walls?
4. In what ways can the issue of immigration be used for leverage in the partisan political arena, both in the area of courting new voters from immigrant populations and supporters thereof, and in using discussion of immigration policy as a rhetorical tool to shame and marginalize the opposing party.
5. They took are jerbz.
