I think security first before amnesty is still a bad deal. A government that sues states for trying to crack down on illegal immigration while ignoring states that encourage illegal immigration will never be trusted to secure the border in exchange for amnesty regardless if its amnesty first before security or security first before amnesty. Immigration reform should never have any amnesty,dream acts, pathway to citizenship, a promise to pay fines in exchange for legalization or any other form of amnesty period. Immigration reform should only consist of measures to discourage illegal immigration and the discourage the encouragement of illegal immigration.

2.

-enroll yourself into school
-enroll your minor kids into school
-apply for welfare,food stamps,section 8 housing and any other tax payer assistance for yourself and or your children
-get a business license,fishing/hunting permit,building permit, license to practice law, food handlers permit, gun license(in states that require a permit to buy a gun),concealed carry permit(in states that require a license to conceal carry) or any other tax payer funded service
-open a bank account, cash a check, use a credit/debit/pre-paid card, apply for a loan,or wire money.
-rent,borrow,lease or buy property
-rent,borrow,lease or buy a motor vehicle.
-get legal documents for yourself or your children.
3.Mandate E-verify for every employer,school and government office.
4.Repeal part of the immigration and nationality act of 1965 that allows for the chain migration of relatives other than spouse or minor children.This would virtually eliminate anchor babies.
5.Seeing how many of these people here illegally came her on a visa and let it expire we should also cut off visas to citizens of countries we have the most illegal immigration problems with until those numbers go down.
6.Any elected or appointed official who encourages illegal immigrants will be thrown into prison,permanently barred from any elected or appointed office, be denied any legal licenses and etc.
7.Hire enough border agents to actually secure the border and arm them.
8.Anyone caught aiding illegals should be thrown into prison.It doesn't matter if they are simply leaving water out in the desert for illegals or smuggling them.
