Thoughts on Immigration Reform
A lot of great things have happened since President Donald Trump took office. Stocks are up, jobs are up and unemployment is at the lowest it’s been in a long time, crime rates are down, illegal immigration is down, unwanted insurance is no longer being crammed down peoples throats, salaries are up and taxes are lowered.
The issues that will be ongoing are immigration and anti-terrorism. Here I will give my thoughts on the current immigration crisis. I will cover a few things that many Conservatives agree with and Liberals will hate. Thats life isn’t it, you win some and you lose some. Even some Conservatives may not agree with the my methods of madness; but I am ok with that too. I never cared to please everyone; only to do what I feel is right legally, morally, and ethically.
First, my thoughts on DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). It should have never existed. It was a bias program that was racist in nature. It did not benefit the American society as a whole. It was only designed to benefit Hispanic minorities; many of whom were not born in the United States. There are millions of US citizens of other races who could not benefit from DACA. Are America’s legitimate children citizens not Dreamers as well? I was not pleased about the bias ways Obama’s presidency one bit.
Second, Send illegal immigrants back home to their nation of origin. There are many immigrants applying for residency and work permits the legal way. When illegals come to the USA illegally they lower the quota’s that Embassy’s are allowed to approve through the state department. It makes legal immigrants wait longer. It is not fair for those who are not skipping the line.
Many of these Illegal immigrants are Criminals. They have committed murder, rapes, illegal weapons trafficking, illegal drug sales, many are gang members, forced prostitution, and human trafficking. They are a drain on the American tax payers. Many come and end up in jail or on welfare unable to legally work. Welfare is a privilege that should have never been allowed to anyone without a valid visa. Criminals should be implanted with a non-removable chip. That way they can not legally return on false documentation.
For the illegals immigrants who came and have not broken any laws other than immigration’s laws; I would give them 90 days after being identified to save up and go back to their native country before being forcibly deported. I would not yet black list them since they were probably trying to do what is best for their family. This will help them to survive in their native country while they apply to return legally.
Third, I agree with having a new secure wall; Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) should take advice from Israel. We need one that cannot be climbed or tunneled under. We need a merit based immigration system that only allows immigrants that will be beneficial to American society. Perhaps immigrants should start requiring sponsors. If a business hasn’t accepted them as labor already then they shouldn’t come.
If you have a legitimate problem with a foreigner and you suspect that he might be illegally within the United States; call immigration. That does not mean you should be a dick to your neighbor that you know is legal and just don’t like. Do not waste the time of immigration; but if you see something that is not right, do something, say something. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) can be reached at 1-866-347-2423.
My end Statement: I don’t mind foreigners coming to the United States seeking a better life for themselves and their families. I just ask the people come legally and with peaceful intentions. Pay taxes and be a contributing member of society. Don’t come if all you want is a free ride on the social systems and to drop off anchor babies as a reason to stay. For years I have believed that the United States should do away with Automatic Birth Right Citizenship. The only legitimate citizens should be born to parents where at least one parent is a United States Citizen already. Otherwise just give them a birth abroad certificate and give them ninety days to get the new child added to the Visa’s or sent to their nation of origin.
Let me know what your thoughts are? How would you manage immigration?
