How to implement open borders while still
advocating for “border security”? What
are the tricks?
Step1: Block the construction of a passive physical barrier at the border(s). Get migrants on US soil by hook or by crook.
Step2: Under the interpretation and application of current US immigration laws, regulations, decrees and related court rulings BORDER SECURITY WILL NOT WORK. Implement catch and release.
How does border security stop trespassers from
walking, running, jumping, swimming, flying onto US soil and taking up long
term US residency (for 2 to 20 years or more practically speaking)?
Step3: Allow a claim for asylum in the US for a catch-all any “humanitarian reason”.
How does border security stop asylum fraud?
Step4: Overwhelm the legal system.
And the intentional flood of the legal system
effectively makes the simple claim defacto legal US residency WITH substantial
taxpayer benefits for a very long time.
The worst case is a free trip home IF found
and deported. There is NO deterrent. What if shoplifters merely had to return
the stolen loot?
Wait, wait. There’s more …
While on US soil, the parents are REWARDED since any children born are given US
citizenship (of all things).
You have two years from the grant of your asylee status to file for your minor children under 21 and your spouse regardless or whether they are in the US or overseas.
Social Security Number and Driver’s License
You may immediately apply for an unrestricted Social Security card at a Social Security office near you once you have asylee status.
Can now apply for a Driver’s License
During the entire 8 months from the date you were granted asylum you are entitled to certain government benefits depending on the state in which you reside:
- Cash Aid ( very limited)
- Food Stamps
- If you are over age 65 or legally blind you may be eligible for SSI benefits.
Health care is NOT complicated at least politically speaking.
Over the past 7 to 8 years, people in a few states have grown increasingly dependent on Medicaid/CHIP and large ACA subsidies. Correlate those states with Senators opposed to repeal of ACA.
The neverTrumpers will never understand that his followers and voters did NOT vote for a personality and business style. They voted for a set of policies.
To end unfettered, illegal immigration and related abuses. Against wasteful big government. For a stable public AND private health care system. For public AND private ed. To stop human and drug smuggling at the Southern border. To rebuild AND employ inner cities where needed. For clean air and clean water, not an environmental political wedge issue.
Rational, affordable public policy. The list is long.
The Opposition (aka The Resistance) should explain why they are simply just opposed, and propose their policies.
There are maybe millions of Immigration Dreamers residing on US soil (within borders) in violation of US ICE laws and possibly others.
There are likely many 10’s of millions of Dreamers not on US soil, and not in violation of any US laws. Many are a few yards literally from US borders (Canada, Mexico) or just a plane or boat ride away. Many are in far more dire straits than US Dreamers.
Would a swap of some sort be an acceptable middle ground? All things considered. Will someone give up their seat on the bus?
If a swap, then not really another amnesty. Fair to those waiting legally. On balance, the humane issue is improved overall — The Left can’t possibly object. The Right gets all law abiding new people. Maybe some middle ground.
Add adult adoption and sponsorship to the equation. Relax child adoption rules and timelines.
Immigration has been a hot button, divisive issue for many years now. Just recently, an expensive Federal vs. State and Local government fissure has widened. The divide hinges on residency status, legal/illegal.
Question: Should illegal aliens (as defined by US law and more specifically ICE) be asked to voluntarily, in fairness to all, in good conscience, “come out of the shadows” and rectify their residency status, or leave? In other words, cure, correct, fix, remedy, remove their illegal status.
If leave is chosen, then a number provisions could kick-in. For example, assets could be sold tax free. Transportation provided free of charge.
