I would change my immigration policy as follows. New immigration policy: 1.) First priority, upgrade the US/MX border crossing prevention system by any combination of walls, fences, patrols and electronic measures until it is extremely difficult to cross except at established border crossings. (No system will ever work 100% of the time.) Change: US will negotiate with MX to achieve a treaty that involves both countries in building and financing the wall. The only way to force MX to pay for it is hardball trade barriers which will hurt US workers, US consumers, and of course hurt MX in many ways. IMO MX paying 100% will never happen and Trump is under a delusion he can make it so. Note that the US cannot afford the funds to build the wall without cooperation from MX. Call this a diplomatic challenge. 2.) End "catch and release." Immigrants serving prison time for felonies will be deported to their country of origin at end of sentence. All immigrants previously convicted of felonies will be located and deported to their country of origin. Immigrants caught crossing the border illegally will be deported to their country of origin as soon as practical, and held not released while awaiting transportation. All deportations will be to the middle of country of origin, not a border town. In the case of MX send them to Mexico City. INS will recieve orders to facilitate the above and adequate funding. 3.) Zero tolerance for criminal aliens. Immigrants caught and convicted of committing misdemeanors will be treated as above or if the offense is sufficiently minor will be directly deported to country of origin. Immigrants arrested for any felony or misdemeanor will be held while awaiting trial, not released back into the population. (Otherwise they'll just change their name and not show for the trial.) Restore Secure Communities and 287(g), that deputized police officers to act in a limited capacity as immigration agents. Deport Hillary Clinton. (Just kidding!) 4.) Block funding for sanctuary cities. This is his plan but I'm not sure he can enforce it. Write an executive order and see if it sticks. Otherwise send in federal agents to enforce laws that sanctuary cities won't enforce. Fund the program adequately. 5.) Cancel Obama executive orders on immigration. No change except vet ALL Obama executive orders and cancel any of them that don't make sense (probably most of them, maybe all of them). 6.) Suspend visas from certain countries with inadequate screenings, especially Syria and Libya. Extreme vettingd. No change from Trump's plan. 7.) Ensure countries take back immigrants the United States deports. You say courts demand they be released into US? Executive order time. Suspend all visas and immigration applications from countries that will not cooperate (my addition, the "stick.") 8.) Complete the biometric entry-exit visa tracking system. No change. Hunt them down and deport them if they don't go home on time. 9.) Turn off the jobs and benefits magnet. No change. Enforce E-Verify ensuring that employers verify prospective employees have the legal right to work in US, and establish SERIOUS penalties for businesses who hire workers who do not have the legal right to work in US. End benefits such as food stamps etc. to illegal immigrants. I would additionally add a program of INS random audits of businesses to ensure all employees are legal and prosecute if illegals are discovered. In the case of workers using forged identity papers to appear legal, immediate deportation to country of origin. 10.) Reform legal immigration. Allow reasonable quotas with consideration of the best interests of US citizens (not US workers, all US citizens). The rest are my own points: 11.) End the stupid talk about deporting 11 million illegal aliens. Right off you know it's heartless to deport illegals who have children that are US citizens, gotta find another solution. First off, sending the felons home and enforcing E-Verify will get rid of about 3 million or more in my estimation. They come here for jobs, and if they can't get legal jobs they will self deport. If they can't find legal jobs and have US children, too bad. Leave them here for adoption or take them with you. 12.) Establish a guest worker program to allow seasonal workers in, and use the biometric system to ensure they go home at the end of the season. 13.) I agree with Trump, if you entered the US illegally there will be NO PROGRAM to be granted US citizenship except to leave the US and apply via the legal immigration system. I depart from Trump in #14 below, in that those who qualify for #14 may stay in the US while their immigration application is being processed. If they eventually meet the requirements to be granted legal rights to become a resident alien and right to work in the US then let it be so. Otherwise stick in #14. 14.) Provide a path to legal residency and right to work for those immigrants who have obeyed the laws. Requirements will be (a) pay a monetary penalty, (b) pay back taxes including interest and penalties, (c) learn to speak English until they can pass a proficiency test. No chance for US citizenship except as provided in #13 above. 15.) As a goal, end the anchor baby policy. IMO any executive order would be unconstitutional. See if Congress can be manipulated into changing the law. With all of the above enacted it would IMO release a major part of the illegal immgrant problem. Accept that a partial solution is the best we can hope for. IMO if Trump continues without some changes perhaps as I suggested he will lose badly to Clinton, and we will have Obama II, and might as well change the name of our country to the United Progressive States of America, and "tear down those walls" (apologies to Reagan) and support a world with no borders. This is such a horrible change that America as we know it will cease to exist.
