Thoughts on improving the immigration system
There are countless issues that affect the current immigration policy of the United States. The following issues, if addressed, could help to deal with this national crisis.
I believe even the most liberal among us would agree that entering the United States without the proper documentation is breaking the law. I know of no neighbors that leave their doors open or unlocked and invite anyone walking by to enter without permission.
States, cities and local jurisdictions that declare “sanctuary” status regarding cooperation with ICE and immigration law should not receive federal funding for local law-enforcement?
The current federal “E-VERIFY” system must be used more effectively to substantially fine employers that hire undocumented immigrants?
The policy of issuing drivers licenses to illegal immigrants must be ended. This policy could enable those with political leanings toward terrorism to rent large trucks that could be used to mow down innocent citizens on our streets and sidewalks?
More must be done to secure our elections. You cannot rent a truck, get a prescription filled, receive medical treatment, get a library card, apply for Medicare (even with a Social Security card) or receive many other services without a photo-ID. We should not be permitted to vote without proper ID?
Many who enter the United States illegally and without proper medical screening pose a potential health risk by reintroducing onceeradicated diseases (measles, whooping cough, tuberculosis, etc.) back into the United States? This is a serious medical concern that must be addressed.
The policy of “chain-migration” which allows those who immigrate to the United States to sponsor many of their relatives should be revisited and modified or eliminated?
The “lottery” system which places potential immigrants on a list to enter the United States should be discontinued as this does not bring in the best and the brightest, but the “lucky” into the United States?
