How to Fix America’s Immigration system
First - Immigration into the U.S. is a privilege, NOT a right.
People who support ‘open borders’ or declare that ‘no human is illegal’ are ignoring reality. There are BILLIONS of nice people around the world that want to escape poverty and persecution. Should we allow everyone in? The U.S. cannot save everyone in the world. We will only destroy our economy, our way of life and become a third world nation.
Vetting refugees/immigrants is nothing new and it’s not immoral. In 1919, the U.S. deported 249 anarchists to Russia.(1) Putting a temporary ban on admittance to the U.S. from Muslim majority countries until proper vetting procedures can be put into place is a smart move by Donald Trump. Since most terrorist attacks around the world are by Muslims, Trump has a moral obligation to examine Muslim immigrants more closely.
Second - How many immigrants/refugees should we let in?
This is really the deciding factor on implementing a rational immigration policy for the U.S. Immigration into America MUST be limited to what our economy can absorb and doesn’t displace American workers. Some politicians (mostly Democrats) claim that wanting to limit legal immigration is racist or xenophobic. NOT TRUE. We need to do what is in the best interest of the American people. Immigrants can enter the U.S. only if we allow it.
Third - Illegal immigration must end!!
Every country has restrictions on immigration and controls their borders to prevent illegal immigration. Any country that will not control their borders is no longer a sovereign nation. Immigrants who come here legally deserve our respect and support. Illegals don’t. Illegal aliens do NOT have the same rights as citizens. Narrow minded liberals who support “rights” for illegal aliens have a flawed concept of right and wrong and are doing great harm to American unity and to the rule of law. Supporting illegal entry into the U.S. is treason against America’s core values for over 200 years. Yet, these traitors act like illegals did something great by coming here illegally!

Most illegals seem to be nice people who work hard. While we can sympathize with their plight up to a point, being a nice guy doesn’t change the fact that you are here illegally. If you rear end another car, the police officer will not let you go because you’re a nice guy. We should also keep in mind that a lot of illegals are “nice" only because they are on a public relations campaign to get Americans to be sympathetic to their cause - amnesty. However, if you tell an illegal they don’t deserve amnesty and should be deported, you will quickly find out that a lot of illegals are really not nice people. In addition, illegals bypass the medical exam legal immigrants receive. Areas with high concentrations of illegals have seen outbreaks of diseases that were eradicated in America decades ago.(2)
Amnesty would result in 12 million illegals becoming legal - here to stay. Based upon the 1986 amnesty, on average five legal immigrants were added to the population for each person who received amnesty.(3) So the 12 million could add another 60 million legal immigrants in the next two decades. Would you prefer to live jam packed in a huge metro area crammed with millions of people - like India or China - or live in a place with some breathing room? How much more farmland would you like to see turned into housing developments or apartment complexes? We are FULL.
Some illegals have a baby in the U.S. which automatically makes them an American Citizen. Illegals use “anchor babies” as their “get out of jail free” card to hide behind. ‘Anchor babies’ being born a U.S. citizen must be outlawed!
Giving a blanket amnesty to illegals makes a mockery of all those who want to enter legally or have entered legally. Why should these people play by the rules when the law breakers get a free pass? If you believe we shouldn’t deport illegals, we have a question for you: Would you mind if your job or a friend’s job was taken by an illegal alien??
Fourth - Should the U.S. allow some illegals to become citizens?
Do to Obama’s refusal to enforce immigration law, there are two groups of illegals that we probably should allow to become citizens. While they are certainly criminals for being here illegally, the real criminal is Obama who put America into a corner on this issue. Illegals who have lived in the U.S. continuously for 10 years or so and DREAMers - children brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents and now they are adults should be allowed to become citizens under these conditions:
1) No criminal record or gang affiliation. 2) If they have or are serving honorably in the U.S. military. 3) If DREAMers are self supporting or doing well in school. 4) Renounce in writing all loyalty and allegiance to the country they came from - mostly Mexico. This was required in the past and needs to be reinstated. See Naturalization papers from 1889 and 2005. 5) No dual citizenship. It’s fine to be proud of your heritage, but you can have loyalty to only one country. Must be willing to sign a document renouncing citizenship to the country they came from. 6) Pay appropriate financial penalties.
If these conditions are met, they can stay in the U.S. and become proud Americans like immigrants in the past. Everyone else is systemically deported. In addition, anyone who honorably served in the U.S. military becomes a citizen.
Fifth - What kind of immigrants/refugees should America accept?
Many immigrants of the past were more patriotic then native born Americans because they had firsthand knowledge of the tremendous freedom and opportunity they had in America. These proud immigrants wanted to leave their native country behind and embraced America. Their loyalty was to their new adopted country of America and they didn’t demand special favors. They wanted to wave the American flag and insisted that their children learn English so they could be “real” Americans. These immigrants were a tremendous asset to America. For instance, there are millions of Americans of German descent and they took up arms against their ancestral homeland in World Wars One and Two - with thousands dying or injured. They did this because they were proud Americans of German descent, NOT Germans living in America. This is the type of immigrant we should accept.
Sadly, we now have Immigrants who are American in name only. They are unamerican in their hearts and anti-American in their conduct. They have an agenda that can only be described as treasonous. NEVER before in American history has a group of people flooded into America (both legal and illegal) who despise our country, our people and our heritage. These hate-America immigrants mostly come from Mexico and Muslim countries and are really engaged in an unarmed invasion of America.
Mexican American traitors fill American soccer stadiums, cheer for Mexico and boo the US team and our national anthem. They wave the Mexican flag, disrespect the American flag and have attacked Americans celebrating the 4th of July. They demand bi-lingual access and insist that America should be bilingual. Hundreds of thousands of Mexican immigrants and supporters have demonstrated under a sea of Mexican flags in U.S. cities demanding welfare rights and amnesty for Illegal immigrants. Immigrants of Mexican descent need to do what’s right and get rid of these false loyalties to the country they fled from.
The issue with some Mexican invaders is they believe the southwest U.S. is occupied Mexican land. This idea stems from the fact that Mexico lost these lands after the Mexican American War - which Mexico started. The truth is, the southwest US in NOT historically Mexican land - it is historically INDIAN land. The Spanish stole it from the Indians. Mexico is 100% responsible for the Texas rebellion of 1836 and started the Mexican American War of 1846.(4)
Muslims are infamous for refusing to assimilate. Every time Muslims become a majority in a country, they impose Sharia Law, establish a Theocratic dictatorship and non-Muslims no longer have any rights.
To sum up, this traitor class of immigrants have NOTHING in common with traditional immigrants. People who don’t share our values should not be allowed into our country.
