Immigration Policies needed for the American People to support
On Immigration ‘Reform’ – Requirements we will need to support
Some thoughts on immigration policies put together that must be stated up front about the problems in immigration – people who call for “comprehensive immigration reform” seldom mean it. That goes for both the open borders Left and the Crony Capitalist Chamber of Commerce and cheap labor business cohort.
In truth, no one in the open-borders/crony coalition wants anything approaching comprehensive immigration reform. Advocates are embarrassed about the present mess at the border not because thousands of foreign nationals, many of them unescorted children and teens, from Latin America, without skills or education, are flocking illegally across the border after largely taking the amnesty cue from Barack Obama, but because they are doing so in such dramatic fashion that the influx has awakened the sleeping giant that is the American people and exposed illegal immigration to be a callous enterprise, promoted by a coalition of self-interested political operatives, commercial concerns, and ethnic con artists.
So, if reform could be done, what should be included in this immigration reform?
We have put together several issues we believe could well be a starting point for new immigration policies:
Such legislation would first have to make border security and Interior enforcement the top priority. And then perhaps a guest worker program could be worked out, which would entail several requisites.
A. – Guest Worker Program:
Canada has good program where –
1. All temporary guest workers will be recruited and hired through agencies IN THEIR ORIGINATING COUNTRY. Allowing hiring from within the US causes a massive incentive for illegal presence in the US to look for work. So use of local employment agencies in originating country will be mandated.
2. Guest workers would be allowed to be in the US for no more than 6 to 8 months, and then must return home through entry, exit system of verifications.
3. ALL temp workers will remain “…under the jurisdiction….” of their originating country due to the 14th amendment. No birthright citizenship will be allowed as they are to remain under the jurisdiction of originating country as guests, diplomats and visitors to the US. You can NOT have millions of guest workers that then give birth where all are automatically given citizenship, which defeats the entire concept of a “guest worker”. Employers will provide/pay transport to and from their work site to originating country.
4. Originating country will be responsible for any and all medical costs associated with the workers.
B. – Other Enforcements :
1. The first step would be the completion of the fence. Fences do work. That is why, for example, former mayor of Los Angeles and open-borders advocate Antonio Villaraigosa (“We don’t need to build walls, we need to build bridges”) became the first mayor in Los Angeles history to insist on a six-foot-high security fence around his official mayoral residence in Windsor Square, or why the White House, the homes of Silicon Valley billionaires, and the vacation homes of the elite on Martha’s Vineyard all have security fences. How odd that we are lectured about the Neanderthal nature of secure borders by elites who are about the only ones in America who demand them around their own estates. Perhaps ask Mr. Zuckerberg of Facebook about this. He has purchased all the surrounding homes around his….so others may not encroach on him.
2. Second, the Border Patrol would have to turn back all who crossed illegally and then let that be known. Border “Patrolling” is not what they are currently doing. A more accurate term for the present agency would be “Border Ushers” who simply direct these illegals to their appointed seats at OUR table.
3. Third, until deterrence is established, more guards would have to patrol the entire border area. And the more the border was made sacrosanct, the more underworked operatives in the interior could be redeployed to the border.
4. Massive INTERIOR Enforcement will be required via E-Verify and or national ID that is Verifiable. The E-Verify system should be adjusted to not just be used for employment verification, but also for any contract, home purchase, and auto purchase, or other as seen needed by individual states. The border will likely never be totally secured or closed and interior enforcement will have to be made strong at the business level. Social Security administration must reinstitute the “notice of no match” letters to businesses where SS numbers employees give are checked and if they do not match they are dismissed until they can provide correct SS numbers. A computer algorithm must be developed and used that would analyzed SS deposits for fraudulent use of multiple SS numbers in many different geographical locations by many different individuals.
With strong interior enforcement much less time/effort will be needed at border since the incentive to enter illegally will be lessened due to inability to work without proper ID and or authority through proper guest worker registration.
5. Employer/businesses must be held accountable for hiring illegals. First offence – $10,000 fines per employee, Second offense – $100,000 per employee and Third offence will automatically result in seizure of entire business and all assets sold off and shut down, then criminal charges brought against owner/CEO/Board of Directors. This is to get the attention of Chamber of Commerce and other low wage cronies.
6. Due to possibilities of Presidential Executive Orders undermining future enforcements, these enforcements must be tied together to any “goodies” in any bill.
Example being if any enforcement is reduced or E.O.’d out….then H1b visas will be cut in half automatically etc. One must automatically be tied to the other. Although, there is now some movement toward asking for a complete halt to H1b due to it being mostly a fraud. It’s mostly being pushed by lower wages, not an actual shortage of US workers. Jesse Jackson and other Minority leaders are prepping H1b reduction as a big issue. And the big tech companies have been caught lying about it and using illegal practices to get around it.
7. Entry-Exit Visa tracking and enforcement is mandatory.
8. Allow States to act on enforcement and experiment with various options according to THEIR own needs/wants.
9. Tax on remittances to Mexico/other countries to lessen their participation in pushing their poor illiterate citizens to migrate. Stop the monies-stop the push. Over 20 Billion dollars were remitted last year….that is why Mexico is so involved in this illegal activity. A tax on all remittances is recommended.
10. Move to Needs based and cease all familial/diversity and random lottery visa based immigration. Only immediate family can be attached. No extended families. Otherwise you have a never ending inflow. Need based is priority.
11. A very hard and serious discussion needs to be had on Birthright Citizenship. An illegal action such as illegal presence in a country should not infer to anyone a path to legal citizenship by birth. They should remain “…subject to the jurisdiction of…” their originating country per the 14th amendment and not therefore be automatic citizens. Most other countries have done away with this in their countries due to the high level of movement available with today’s travel technologies. Stop birthright tourism industry. One should not be able to obtain a legal right through an illegal act.
12. Another hard discussion needs to be had on – is there a real need for ANY immigration? The so called shortage of STEM workers is and has always been bogus. There are 5 million STEM workers either out of work or working in areas not in their STEM fields. We needed immigration 80 years ago to fill out manual labor and farm needs….that is no longer the case and has not been for some time. We have 98 million folks OUT of the labor pool. Every study has found no need for Tech worker immigration. The only reason found has been – LOWER WAGES. And that is not a valid reason. Some of the most fabled names in the tech business (Apple, Facebook etc.) have conspired to fix the wages of their highly qualified engineers by forming illegal non-competitive hiring pacts, so it’s hard to tell just how pressing the demand for engineering talent really is.
13. Do not fall for the oft heard phrase “we are nation founded by immigrants”. That is not true. When the Europeans came here, there was NO Country in existence to “immigrate” to. And those who came here were Explorers and Conquerors. Not immigrants.
14. The Temporary Protected Status program must be phased out and all who have been allowed in must be returned to originating country. Do you know that NO ONE has EVER been returned from this program? So it is NOT temporary.
If enforcement is not mandatory this will all have to be done again….as it has every time before. Non-enforcement has been followed up after EVERY legalization or amnesties.
Merit based immigration — is equally an anathema to those who call for it in the abstract. If legal immigration were to be ethnically blind, and based on merit rather than proximity to the southern border, the ethnic con artist industry would rise in revolt.
Racialist groups such as La Raza affiliates do not believe in true diversity, racial or otherwise. They do not want legal immigration to be based on skills or college degrees, which might result in a million Kenyan doctors, Czech engineers, Chilean nurses, Mexican architects, Punjabi programmers, or Korean dentists entering the United States.
Nor would the liberal or the chamber of commerce elite in general like such merit-based immigration. They are happy to have cheap unskilled labor for janitorial work, landscaping, nannying, field labor, and construction, with such a pool driving down the wages of others. But skilled professionals in law, medicine, business, and other professions would compete with the native elite. Paying a high wage for an American citizen to do housework while competing for a job with a foreign-born stockbroker, professor, reporter, or lawyer may not be what proponents of comprehensive immigration reform had in mind.
A legislative compromise always seems within reach. There is a vast DC lobbying/media complex that depends for its survival on “comprehensive” reform always seeming within reach — to keep the corporate clients paying the bills, to keep the grant makers granting, to keep reporters on their beats writing easy denunciations of DC dysfunction, to keep the whole capital consensus from unnecessary introspection (in which Republicans might have to rethink parts of their platform other than the immigration plank, while Democrats might have to consider what low-skilled migration, expanded in the service of cheap ethnic politics, is doing to their former working class base).
Many Americans would support giving aliens who came here years ago, who have always been working and paying taxes, and who have been crime-free a chance at a green card. With mastery of English, the payment of a penalty for their illegal residence, and certification of self-support, many would be eligible for a pathway to citizenship. However, the open-borders alliance wishes no deportation of anyone. Business leaders who might support deportation do not wish to be called racists. Ethnic activists do not wish to lose any constituents, especially those currently deeply dependent on government social services. And liberal politicians want poor illiterates as future constituents regardless of their particular circumstances.
It’s no longer possible to say our grandparents made it, despite their apparent disadvantages.
They were different people, and that was a different country and different time.
Nor can one rely on “education” or “assimilation” — what if the immigrants simply conclude that their views are just better than the domestic majority’s? I think many of the current residents may rightly say “We have nothing against immigrants; but we don’t want our rights changed by the arrival of people who have a different perspective on the world than we do.”
France, Germany and the UK are now experiencing the terrible fall out of unassimilated and expanding immigration of Muslims and are working to stop it. A very wary eye needs to be placed on further immigration from Islamic countries.
Letting in immigrant’s means you are letting in your future rulers.
The UK has just caught on to immigration frailties….and announced:
David Cameron announces immigration crackdown
Benefits for EU migrants will be cut off after three months, says PM, as he promises Coalition changes will ‘put Britain first’
UK is beginning to understand problem of massive cultural destructing immigration.
