This would benefit the immigrants by giving them an actual interest in their new country and the prosperity thereof.
There should also be a huge tax on the amount of money that immigrants can earn here and then take out of the American economy by sending that money out of the country to their relatives in other countries where it is then spent.
Everyone needs to have a personal stake in the country and it's become obvious that it doesn't happen voluntarily.
It seems upside down to simply allow immigrants to come to America and start criticizing how those who built this country are taxed in order to obtain more government services for themselves.
And, what, people born here somehow earned all those benefits just for the sake of being born here?
