    My immigration reform plan

    1) Every illegal immigrant in the US will fill out a piece of paperwork giving their name, DOB, etc.

    2) Upon filling out the paperwork, they will be automatically enrolled in the current line to become a US citizen, and they will be granted permanent legal status until they become US citizens (providing they commit no serious felonies)

    3) There will be no new citizenship line created; the current illegals will be sent to the back of the current line to become a US citizen. If this line needs to be sped up, it will be sped up. However, the illegals do not need to go back to their home country or anything; they just need to fill out a piece of paperwork.

    4) If the INS finds them and finds out they haven't filled out the paperwork, they will be given the paperwork and instructed to fill it out. No one will be deported for filling out the paperwork.

    So you basically just give citizenship to the millions who came to the U.S. illegally? This will not solve the problem just make it far worse while simultaneously spitting ion the face of anyone who came to the U.S. legally.

    Not just no, but hell no. Every single illegal in this country who came here for any reason whatsoever needs to be thrown out of the country, period. While I'd like to see them denied citizenship forever, I'll settle for being sent to the back of the line and having to wait years before returning. Anyone on the list who comes back into the country illegally for any reason will be denied citizenship, and/or shot.

    If you don't care enough to follow our laws, I don't want you in this country.

    Great plan, I would make this minor change:

    Step Number: 2) They will then be put on a bus and transported permanently back to Mexico.

    Steps 3) and 4) are then deleted.

    Any illegal immigration plan that doesn't include moats, crocodiles, and a modern day take on Einsatzgruppen or the KZ system is weak sauce.

    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    This doesn't really address visas being given out to foreign nationals who want to come to the US, but personally I think it should be very easy to get a work visa or something.

    I mean, why shouldn't anyone just come to the US and sign the papers? Why worry about visas and green cards?

    Well, they'd have to illegally cross the border first, which is very dangerous. I'm not against increasing security at the border, maybe that could be part of the plan. I don't think that people would suddenly decide to risk their lives crossing the border simply because of an immigration reform plan. The people who would take that risk likely will do it regardless of our immigration policy.

    Re: My immigration reform plan

    I don't think a single way can be found that is fair or right.

    I think for people who were brought here at a young age there should be allowances made. It's not like a 4 year old has any say in where their parents take them or has any sort of 'home' to go back to. They may have spent the majority of their lives here and understandably would consider themselves from here.

    For those who came when they were adults a different system needs to be devised. They knew what they were doing was wrong. I can see a relatively stiff penalty or even deportation being done.
    There is only one basic human right, the right to do as you damn well please. And with it comes the only basic human duty, the duty to take the consequences.
