My four-step program to end the illegal immigration problem. None of these would usurp the rights of any US citizen or legal immigrant.

1. Amend the Constitution to state that no child born in the US if EITHER parent is not a US citizen or legal immigrant shall be eligible for US citizenship.

2. Close the US borders entirely to entry by any non-US citizen without a valid passport. No exceptions. Require that any illegal immigrant in the US must leave the US within 90 days of the enactment of the law. No exceptions. Illegal immigrant parents with US born children would be given the option of either leaving the US with them, or leaving the children in the US to be put up for adoption. No exceptions.

3. Severely punish any US employer with both fines and/or jail time who is convicted of knowingly employing any illegal immigrant--say a $100,000 fine and 1 year in jail for each offense.

4. Enact federal legislation that stipulates that any person in the US illegally who is convicted of state or federal charges of committing a serious felony crime of violence (assault with a deadly weapon, murder, etc.), or is convicted of selling or distributing illicit narcotics or methamphetamines in the US shall also be charged in Federal Court with committing an act of terrorism against the United States, with a penalty of death if convicted of the federal charge.

Those four initiatives would spell the end of illegal immigration, as well as the end of the activities of illegal aliens in the drug trade in this country.

Please note that I did not use the words "Mexican" or "Hispanic" anywhere in this post. The laws should apply to ANY illegal immigrant to this country, regardless of origin.

Close the borders?

Why hasn't anyone thought of that before. It's so simple, really. You have to wonder why nobody has ever tried that, don't you? In fact, if you can accomplish that part, who needs the other three steps? The border's closed--you've won!!!!

I'm eagerly awaiting your four-step program to fix the health care system, especially

I take it that you mean that one parent is here legally for a US born child to qualify for birthright citizenship? If you mean that both parents must be legal; I have a problem with that being if an American women were out of country, got pregnant, then gave birth on US soil that her kid is an alien.

Otherwise: I agree with your post 100%.
