What should be done about America's illegal immigration problem?
--Temporarily stop the flow as much as feasible (I'm sure it can't be stopped completely for various reasons)
--Take care of the backlog of open inbound cases while simultaneously conducting a targeted deportation effort of every immigrant who has ever committed a crime on our soil and all who are suspected terrorists.
--Complete processing of the 6 year backlog of cases of those who are known to have crossed the southern border illegally, but have been released.
--Finally, revise and streamline the immigration process with the safety of American citizens as the absolute paramount objective.
--While all this is happening, complete the fence along the southern border and get our border security personnel working the way they're supposed to again.
--Finally, open up immigration again with the new, streamlined, and ultra safe for American citizens process.
All immigrants from the last 300 years must go back to the countries they came from. Start packing.
1) Deport illegals
2) Secure the border
3) Make it easier for people to immigrate legally
Give people a chance to come forward and take appropriate steps to citizenship without legal ramifications but within a time frame. Criminals and those refusing a legal path to citizenship should be rounded up, fingerprinted and deported promptly. Build a wall or some sort of better border security.
Build a wall then round up and deport
Build the fence
Enforce our immigration laws
Jail those coming here illegally and the deport. Don't give them a court date and let them go free.
Stop giving federal funds to sanctuary cities
No benefits for illegals
Make EVerify mandatory.
Make citizenship easier.

Check background, if anything criminal (not including crossing a line in the sand or a traffic ticket) send them back. Interview them to make sure they can take care of themselves or have a relative who can. If all OK give them a visa to work for a year. After a year if all still OK let them renew for 3 more years. If they again do OK let them apply for permanent stay. This is my overall idea, a few details such as right to get family come has to be worked out, but basically they just have to take care of themselves and I think it's good.
Build that wall!
Build a wall, punish companies that hire illegals, deport as many illegals as possible & make being able to speak English a requirement.
I wondering if anyone commenting below knows any mexicans? Maybe if you did you wouldn't believe all the bullshit the republicans spew about them?
I know a lot of Mexicans. People from Panama, Trinidad, Puerto Rico as well. What is you claim that Republicans have said about them?
They are rapists, and some i assume are good people.
That they receive sanctuary in cities then murder innocent people.
They take a few examples of bad behavior to represent the whole.
I know many, work with them, they are good hard working people with families and are instrumental in many small business successes throughout this country.
Which republicans have said that?
All i know of was Trump making some of those comments.
Agree that some of Trump's comments are not too well thought out. One could always pull a Clinton and argue that Trump's first five words of that statement shows he is not talking about all illegal Mexican immigrants and only the ones sent by Mexico. (What with a cloth?)
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best."
Almost every fox news commentator has claimed illegal immigrants are killing people.
I doubt that, unless you are taking a comment out of context.
I have heard them talk about specific incidents.
Fix/Enhance Immigration Tracking Methods
Create path to citizenship for illegals already here.
1) Application for Residence
2) Criminal Records deported
3) Must maintain employment
4) Limited access to benefits
Stop them from coming in. If a crime is committed, they go home. There should be no bail or release. Let the rest of them get legal, but no path to citizenship.
Relax regulations and streamline the path to citizenship and get these people working and paying taxes.
Texas conservative.... 🐘🐘 I wonder where you come out on this
Secure the southern border first, so as to make sure we don't have the influx of illegal immigrants that we have now, and immediately deport violent criminals. As for the others, I'm still formulating an opinion on what to do with them.
Build the wall, deport as many illegals as we can.
Path to legal status for those here. It will come with a process and a fine (since they did break a law). Tighten up border security to minimize future illegal immigration. Legal immigration should have the same security process and procedures currently in place.
Fix our pathetic immigration system to make it actually useable for all (or most) of the people who want to use it.
Build a wall. Round up 11 million illegals. Deport them back to their country of origin. Canada. Australia. Japan. Where ever.
I think you're an immigrant too...goodbye!
Provide a path to citizenship for those that want to stay and guest worker for those who do not. Contrary to what many people think is we need these workers.
Yes we do
Why wouldn't they wNt to stay? Honest question.
Enforce the law and build a huge wall that goes underground too! ☺️
