My 11-point Immigration Solution

I support increased legal immigration. Our great land can invite those who love liberty, religious freedom and want to work and prosper to come and be patriotic citizens.

I support increased legal immigration. Our great land can invite those who love liberty, religious freedom and want to work and prosper to come and be patriotic citizens. Let them come to pledge allegiance to the Constitution of the United States of America, to the flag and to the Republic for which it stands. Let them come to learn English and to be loyal to no other country. The government has created several immigration problems including keeping undocumented workers together with their families without giving them legal status. It has been permissive in law enforcement and allowing children to be born to illegal immigrants in the U.S. We must promote legal immigration and end illegal immigration. We can achieve this by:

  1. Respect states’ rights and American citizens’ civil liberties
  2. Promote legal immigration and punish illegal immigration
  3. Secure all borders and points of entry
  4. Deport all who have criminal records
  5. Establish English as the national language to insure cultural integration and loyalty to the U.S.
  6. Document immigrants for travel, work, and voting status
  7. End all social benefits for illegal aliens
  8. Grant legal work status to persons arriving and living in the U.S. prior to a specific date
  9. Allow those granted legal work status three (3) years after the specific date in #8 to apply for citizenship, behind those already legally in line
  10. If those granted have not qualified for citizenship by the specific date in #8, they will be deemed illegal aliens
  11. Those arriving without proper visas on or after one year from the specific date in #8 will be considered illegal aliens Let us follow Theodore Roosevelt’s challenge of 1907:

 

In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American . . . There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag . . . We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language . . . and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

  1. how would you secure the boarders and what would you pay for it with and why not punish the employers by using the laws we already have

    • These are good questions deserving good answers. There is a multitude of ways we can implement in order to secure our boarders including, but not limited to enforcing existing laws, immediately deporting anyone entering illegally, engaging every local community and by making it a federal offense to hire undocumented workers. This final approach would solve most of the problems almost immediately. This should be funded before and instead of foreign aid and before perpetuated welfare programs. The federal government has caused this problem and it must solve it by getting out of doing what the states should do and then focus on what the federal government should do. Amnesty is not the real question to be resolved, but the very constitutional integrity of all three branches of the federal government. They can only be brought into check by repealing the 16th and 17th amendments and providing adequate and additional representation in the U.S. House of Representatives.
