ITT: Improvement on the Immigration Laws of America.

I think that, instead of deporting illegal immigrants, we should give them the option of joining our military, and let them earn their citizenship that way. If they truly want to be American Citizens, I can think of no better way of making them prove it.

Both of my parents are immigrants, so I know what I need to know. I'm not talking about those who come in legally, because they can, i'm talking about those from Latin America who come in illegally, because they have no other choice.

It's one thing for immigrants to come here for work

It's another thing for immigrants to come here for welfare.

If we got rid of the welfare state, I could care less about the immigrants that come here. But since that will never happen, it is better for our borders to be closed.

You could also streamline the process of legal immigration and actually make it possible for young people to migrate to the US legally. TIME had a flow chart in this back in 2011, which showed basically that, unless you had immediate family in the US, or were filthy rich, you had essentially no chance of getting in legally. That means that highly skilled, motivated young people from all over the world, people the US needs, are barred from migrating to a country they may hold more loyalty to than their own, because the legal immigration system is so utterly fucked.

I agree. Our system is quite flawed, and it prevents hard working possible citizens from ever having hope of entry, while we have lazy, useless "homegrown" citizens, who do nothing but waste time, money, and resources, while they protest mere taxation.

Yeah, I love the US, but I know I have fuck-all chance of becoming a citizen under the current system unless I marry a US Citizen, and I'd like to marry because I want to spend the rest of my life with someone, not so they can get me into a country by way of loophole.

We have illegal immigrants given a status card
They are allowed to stay in the untied states, but they won't be allowed to buy anything over 250$
And they won't be allowed to have a job
However, they will be allowed to do work for the government.
While they work, they will have to go through at least three people to work for
After each one has approved of them, they will put a mark on this card.
After the third (or however many) mark, they will be american citizens and will have the same rights.
Also, we will remove the law about only natural born americans being allowed to run for president.

Would that be $250 in general (i.e. $250 in groceries), or any item over $250 dollars?

Weekly spending limit
#2786 to #2784 - Mentoman (07/01/2012) [-]
And they wouldn't be able to roll over any unused money, or could they do soe, up to a total limit of 1000?
#2793 to #2786 - sahakid (07/01/2012) [-]
The second one
And it's for each additional person who is unable to work for themselves
So children, elderly, pregnant women are added, with the limit to 1000

That sounds pretty reasonable, but where would they be living? We want these people to live better lives, which they cannot do if they have to sacrifice they cannot escape similar living conditions that they would have experienced in their home country (i.e. the barrios)
