That's more than I can say for myself. I don't want them to come in at all. Any of them. At this point I even want lawful immigration severely reduced. And I want the immigration act of 1965 repelled.
Constitution states anyone born within the borders is a citizen by default. That is the law the founders laid out. So I don't think their should be any debate about letting children or adults who were born here stay. It's only the ones here illegally that should be forcefully, removed.
That being said there should be some kind of statue of limitations. I see some guy the MSM is putting up all over the news whose been here 30 years. That doesn't feel right to deport him.
Why are you so anti-immigration?
I think we should naturalize any and all persons who are here illegally that are proving to be productive citizens or are fighting to be productive citizens. Let's deport all the leaches and slugs that have been tainting our welfare system into a battle ground for votes while creating an addicted population to red and blue. Randomly picked migration is unfair (to immigrants and our country) and dangerous, especially when foreign countries won't even pay attention to the crimes of their own citizens/aliens to relay to immigration.
Legal immigration is a great thing; brings in potential to fill in holes and as long as it's all merit based why not get the talent? I know and have known quit a lot of people who I think should get deported for forcing others to pay for their life when they're capable and don't. And have known a lot of illegal immigrants who are hard working and just care about life, and will even take pride in America for the opportunity it will give them. If they want to take the job while our own citizens refuse (and there is a good portion who would rather be homeless/on welfare than work), then how is it logical to refuse them?
We should have that wall built up and ICE greatly built up to counter the raging drug and gang warfare that is spilling through the Americas (and then make Mexico a Protectorate of the USA and clean up the country because they obviously can't and are losing it horribly). Then we should change our immigration policy to be more open borders concept (but no illegal immigration [greatly reduced by an attractive immigration system/strong security]) that would be in flux related to our unemployment rate and economic growth rate. At the same time revamp our welfare and judicial systems to promote rehabilitation, community and self-sufficiency. Hell, give everyone a basic income which would provide the foundation for everyone to live. Now I feel I'm ranting...
You make some good points, showing that this is a very complex subject. There are no easy answers, imo.
One of your points mentions giving immigrants jobs that our citizens refuse. I think that you're on target with it being a good idea to overhaul our welfare system. The current system seems to feed off of inherent laziness of people.
One counter argument to the idea that we need immigrants to take jobs that our citizens refuse, is that if immigrants weren't driving down the pay for certain jobs, then citizens may be more willing to take those jobs. And also, if our corporate tax rates weren't among the highest in the world, then we wouldn't be losing jobs to businesses relocating.
