Ten Recommended Immigration Reform Steps


Submitted By Dr. Kevin McNamee

A letter was sent to the House and Senate with the following recommendations to fix our country’s illegal immigration problem. I don’t know if it will be read but consider this Writing Therapy. I encourage others to share if he or she likes the content.

Check List To Fix Illegal Immigration…

  1. E-Verify – Require all employers use E-Verify when hiring an employee. (Stops 45% of illegal immigration)
  2. Border Wall – Build a secure border fence along the US Mexico Border with agents to patrol effectively and monitor those entering and exiting the country. Use manned patrols, cameras, drones and sonar for tunnel detection. (Stops 55% of illegal immigration) 
  3. One Parent is a US Citizen – One parent must be a US citizen for a child born in the United States to receive citizenship. (Stop Maternity Tourist Citizenship).
  4. National Identification Card – Biometric National Identification Card which is tamper proof, using finger print, facial and iris recognition to verify the holder to be in the country legally and work eligible. It is identification for employment eligibility and proof of citizenship. (Note: Other countries use such a work identification card plus it reduced identity theft.)
  5. Legal Immigration Based on Economic Need – Legal immigration should be based on US economic need and not family ties. Use a similar point system in Canada as a model.
  6. Merit Based Legal Immigration – Eliminate family ties as the reason for immigration. Citizenship should be merit based and economic need. (See Australia’s immigration system as a model.)
  7. Lower the Annual Legal Immigration Levels – The number of legal immigrants admitted to the United States should be lowered to its previous level of 500,000 per year.
  8. Lottery System – Eliminate the random selection of the Lottery Immigration method. Citizenship is an honor earned by the applicant, not gambling or a game of chance like state’s LOTTO drawing. Immigration is not a Las Vegas game of chance.
  9. H2-A Guest Worker Program – Expand the guest worker program to fulfill the agriculture need. Note that automation is eliminating the need for farm workers.
  10. Sanctuary City/State Denied Federal Funds – If a city or state refuses to obey federal immigration law, all federal funding is withdrawn.
