Yes – ILLEGAL Immigration. Stop calling law breakers immigrants, they are illegal aliens.
Because the elected are intimated, politically correct, or just plain weasels – citizens are forced to form policy for them. Let’s have a discussion!
Secure the borders. I don’t care how, how much it costs, what it looks like, or who files briefs opposing it – either America is a sovereign country or it isn’t. The status of anyone here illegally does not change until the border is secure. “Secured borders” means to the standards of citizens, not to the standards of politicians. This means no possible way of sneaking in to stay. Land deemed unfit for tourism because of drug cartels is not acceptable to Arizona or the rest of the country. Deportations should continue until the border is secured. Accelerating the pace would probably get the border secured sooner.
Illegals here now who crossed the border after turning 18, have NO path to citizenship ever. They broke the law. In almost every other country they would be in jail! This country can not reward law breakers. They must work with an assigned social security number designating them as a guest worker. They are not eligible for welfare, food stamps, public housing, or any other benefits from the government. They will not be eligible for tax credits which provide income above the taxes paid. Chain migration is not allowed. Illegals will NEVER have the right to vote. Illegals will pay into the social security system, but they will NEVER be allowed to collect social security. Consider it a penalty for breaking the law. They must be deported if convicted of a felony. The only path to citizenship is leaving the country and applying to enter. Applying for a guest worker social security number is mandatory, even if they don’t plan on working. Think if it as “registering” with the government. Failure to register qualifies for deportation. If a Constitutional Amendment to this effect is needed, let’s do it. Enough of the pandering from politicians unwilling to take a stand.
Finally, for the children brought to this country by their illegal alien parents –
- be educated in America
- pass all current requirements for citizenship
- renounce citizenship of any other country
- apply for a guest worker social security number as listed above
- have not been convicted of a felony
- be fluent in English
- not receive ANY financial support originating with taxpayers
If all conditions are met and they desire to be citizens of the United States, they can apply and be fast tracked at age 25. The age is strictly arbitrary, we can’t punish the kids forever for the crimes of their parents.
