Ok, so I am sure this has been posted before, but my intuition tells me this topic will resurge in the next month or so; Shall we discuss the best way to reform immigration in the US?
Should it be a 20ft high brick wall spanning all boarders, or should it be a free for all? None of the above? Speak out!
I would like to see a better work visa system. Not all the "illegal immigrants" intend to stay here permentantly. Specifically those who come for seasonal work, but then can't get back across the border, or if they do leave may not be able to get back. Its crazy how it is in the favor of many corporations to keep the laws as they are, because it allows them to keep exploiting these workers, who are legitimatly needed. If they have a valid work visa, and a valid timeframe, then that would solve a lot of the problems. Shoot, it shouldn't be that hard, so many countries have a functioning immigration policy, I don't see why we can't study what they do and use that as a model for our country. Really, i feel it should be an easy fix, its just been politicized like everything else. Plus the masive use of fearmongering against anyone "foreign" is bull.
and side note, I have a good friend from Canada who due to some paperwork issues is currently "illegal" who works at a Mexican restaurant and is the only illegal alien working there. kinda funny..
You mean those things that they require you to do before you can become a naturalized citizen?
The only difference is that you want to make it that way when they initial enter, vs how it is done now.
If you are talking about people just coming in for work then sure, since I don't think there is anything like this involved.
Haaaa, some graphic of token elder corporate white guy!
Generations folks. Look at Egypt, generational.
