Default An Illegal Immigration Solution

I'd like to see what some of the ideas here are.

Public sentiment and logistical issues prevent some options:

1. Mass Deportation - this is simply impossible given the lack of resources in law enforcement.

2. Open Borders - this is not a solution that Americans will approve, and its not a viable solution for the country. This would lead to a collapse of the infrastructure of border states, and later, the country. Not a solution.


Okay, the plan that I think would work...

1) Close the Borders - construct a fence. Increase law enforcement presence on the border including tunnel-detecting and breech-detecting technology.

2) Establish Naturalization Path - a) require knowledge of American politics, history, the English language, federal laws, and local laws...establish naturalization classes for a cost, b) pay naturalization penalties for breaking the law (its important to reestablish the law as the standard)

3) Enforce Immigration Law - begin fining employers who employ illegal aliens, begin deporting criminals, begin deporting all illegals who do not meet the naturalization standards (immediately deport felons imprisoned or not), and after a grace period that allows families to raise money for naturalization process, begin deporting those who do not follow through with stipulations that the path to naturalization can be continued if money is raised in Mexico.

etc.

Anyway, that's my take on some of the issues. What's your idea?

a fence will not do anything, but there needs to be actual deportation of illegal people, if yyou enter the country illegally you should not be given free reign to do wahtever, you should be kicked out if caught.

I think it is pretty simple to solve the problem of them over here. Fine the hell out of the businesses that hire them. Nothing happens to the people that hire them right now that is the problem. It would need to be a huge fine also.

The real problem is, are people ready to take there jobs?

{point} Will Americans pull weeds all day for minim wage

Next are American ready to pay the price increase ?

I think the real problem lies in the fact that most Americans want to nothing and get paid big money for it. I mean its the American way.

Just my two cents. Flame on !

not exactly, americans want to get paid enough money to live on, and getting paid minimum wage is not enough to live on. though some lazy asses want to keep popping out kids to get more money on welfare or sit in social security offices all day, a good percent of america is willing to work.

Not to get off topic here but I have a solution for that also. If you are on any kind of Government aid then you must get the five year depo shot and be drug tested.

I am not entirely sure mass deportation is impossible. Difficult, but not impossible.

Anyway...

I do not believe law breaking should be rewarded with immediate citizenship. Require all illegals residing in the US to register and apply for work visas.

End anchor baby immigration policies...this was done for former slaves. No other country has this type of law. A baby born in the US is American if a) parents are natural-born American citizens or B} American through legal immigration.

Any illegal with a felony is immediately deported. He or she will not be allowed to legally work or live in the US.

Those who are illegal but otherwise clear to be US citizens if they so wish have a choice. Either apply for a visa to work, or apply for citizenship. If they do neither, they go back to the country of origin. If they pick citizenship, they go to the end of the line as far as becoming a citizen, but will be issued work visas and must pay all fines and fees and engage in the process legal citizens must adhere to to become American.

The border will be closed except at already recognized border crossings (SD, El Pasp, Brownsville). Anyone caught crossing the border will be arrested and charged with a felony, disqualifying them from any future attempt at becoming a US citizen.

Business that hire illegals can risk 5 million dollar fines, regardless of the business, and not a single, one time fine. Per illegal employed by that business.

Being that it is illegal in Mexico for noncitizens to demonstrate against the Mexican government, adopting this stance here would be beneficial. Non citizens have no say in the actions of the American people or their government. They want to be heard? Apply for legal citizenship.

Prosectue La Raza like the KKK or NeoNazi groups. Why be specific in which hate groups we watch?

Its pretty f-in simple how you fix. And no politician from either side of the aisle will touch it with a 20 foot pole.

People come here for jobs. Pure and simple. All the solutions that are offered up these days deal with attacking the flow of immigrants. But there is almost no attempt to go after the corporations that hire illegals... and pay them 2 dollars a day with no benefits. And when someone makes a token effort to go after those hiring illegals, its Joe's Law Service, that employs 5 illegals. Meanwhile the major corporations have thousands on their role. But, since they make large donations to both parties, no politician will go after them.

So, get rid of the jobs, and the illegals flowing into the country will dry up. Pretty simple.

What exactly is meant by "closing the border"?

The surface earth is a contiguous landmass. How exactly do you close it?

Don't tell me build a fence. Because prospective illegal immigrants aren't going to see a fence, and say .... aww shucks, there's a fence here, lets forget about it and go home....

Post armed troops on the border? Any idea how many soldiers will be needed for the entire length of the border and how much this will cost? And is it guaranteed to be more than 50% effective? Can't have them in 50-mile intervals since it doesn't solve anything. And then what about ship jumpers? You have to close the seas too.

For the record, no country in the world has been able to solve the illegal immigration problem.

Also, illegal immigration is not a problem afflicting first world countries. Even third world countries have illegal immigrants from poorer third world countries.

So if you can find a viable serious solution, a lot of folks will want to hear from you.

Swear to god. But maybe there shouldn't be since folks apparently don't know how to post stuff there, and since the mods are evidently not interested in moving stuff there.

/shrug

Oh well.

As for the solutions, some of these are actually doable and palatable, even to me, a middle-of-the-road progressive. I have zero problem working with people who want to be here and want to be citizens.

And for the record, you're not "rewarding them" for breaking the law. The path to citizenship is effing HARD. It's long, and not fun. I'm guessing the lazy folks who are unwilling to go through the entire process will give up and take off.

Or, Mexicans could build up a real infrastructure of businesses, products, services and jobs for their own people.

Crazy thought, I know.

How is it that Canadians were able to build out a viable, functioning economy and Mexico couldn't?

You take away the demand for illegal labor. Enforce harsh penalties on businesses that break the law by hiring illegal labor. The only way you can stop it is to take away the demand. They will find a way to get past whatever layers of bureaucracy or fences we put up in their way.

Everyone else: Don't b**** when the prices at restaurants, hotels, fresh produce, and any thing else that is dependent on illegal labor to make it cheap go way up so that you can't afford them anymore.

Mexico had a larger and better trained army than the US in the early 1800s - a series of ****ty leaders led to the loss of half its territory and then another set of ****ty leaders led to the squandering of its remaining natural resources by foreign interests and then another set of ****ty leaders tried to fix a ****ty situation half-assedly. That brings us to the current day
