yeah than this is a fuckin stupid idea.
one of the only things gifted to us by being born human is free will.. which to me means being able to go wherever i choose on this Earth... and locking people up for trying to move to another place to better themselves is a crime, then we are stepping on free will...
sorry i'll pass.
If you want to "better" yourself then a good way to start is by not going to illegal lengths to do so. Illegal immigrants don't seem to understand this concept. It's like saying, "I'm going to go back to school and get my degree." And then robbing a bank for the tuition.i just think it's stupid to try to lock people up for trying to better themselves... hippie i may be, but that's how i feel....
Illegal aliensyes, we can start with illegal aliens and the homeless. after things settle down, we can expand the program to gypsies, homosexuals, political opposition and anyone deemed inconvenient.
I like this game... I'm gonna pick Gypsies because they have magic!Illegal aliens
One of these is not like the others. Can you guess which one?

Open our borders?
I think we need to more or less open our borders.
Establish a clear, obtainable path to citizenship that includes civic service requirements. Make it hard work but obtainable for anyone willing to put in the effort, and they're taxed on any income while here. Immigrants to the US have a very long history of being (generally) hard working entrepreneurs who in the long run make our country stronger. In the short term there's almost always been some level of turbulence while they assimilate but in the long term we're a stronger people for it.
Anyone not willing to work for it can expect penalties harsher than the current non-penalty setup of deportation.
Apparently you failed US History.Open our borders?
Are you out of your fucking mind? Uncontrolled immigration would be a terrible thing for this country.
Within just a few years, we'd be up to our necks in uneducated immigrants looking to "better their lives," with the end result of dragging the US standard of living down to that of Mexico and other 3rd world nations.
Remember, Illegal Immigration IS a crime.
Apparently you don't live anywhere that has a large illegal immigrant population...they come here to improve their lot in life...yet bring their problems with them and turn neighborhoods and sections of cities into the same shitholes they left...Apparently you failed US History.
This I agree with. We were built on immigration. That is what made us what we are today. All countries should do the same, after all we are one Species, Human.They should make a lot easier to become a paying citizen of this country than it is right now. I have a lot of friends from other countries and it took them YEARS and cost a fortune for some of them.
If people are so upset with illegals not paying their keep then don't make it so fucking convoluted to be a tax-paying citizen of this country.
It's not right that people come here illegally but it's hardly difficult to see that the system in place creates these problems.
I have no problem with prisoners of violent crimes doing something like forced labor but illegal immigrants? Prisoners owe a debt to society. I don't know about illegals. It sounds awfully similarly to slavery...I have no problem with things like that. I've been looking at the number of prisoners in this country and thinking about how much labor they could be doing.
I like this better.I think performing labor (say building a highway, pouring concrete for high speed rail lines, any kind of infrastructure project) for x amount of time should be a pathway to citizenship.
