What do you think would be a good solution to our immigration problems?
Some people have lived here 25 years because our government let them by not enforcing our laws. What is a good solution? Should we deport anyone with criminal records but allow people who have lived here over 5 years to stay? Should we kick them all out and build a wall? What do you think would be good solutions to this complex issue? Also, what should be done about those that help illegals? There's a business that helps illegals find jobs in Seattle that is funded by the state and city. What about business owners and etc?

Turn off free medical, schooling, welfare and the ability to work in the US. Stop allowing children born here to non-citizens to be automatic citizens.

I would say to enforce the laws on the books, and punish those companies that hire them. Also no federal funding should go to sancuary cities. As for the illegals that are here currently, we need to take responsiblity for not enforcing our laws since 1986 (I would get here any way I could to support my family). We need... More

If you're here illegally, out you go, doesn't matter if you've been here 50 years. It's really simple--you're here illegally, you get thrown out!

I think immagrants who want to stay should have to learn about the culture and the lanuage and especially the laws of our country. They should also have a job. Because they are not citizens they should not get welfare or any other government aide.

A good solution would be to stick to the laws that are already in place regarding immigrants. Anyone breaking the law, such as staying past their visa should be deported. Very simply put and repeated "UPHOLD THE LAWS ALREADY IN PLACE". Like the country use to do. Second, elect a president that holds to the laws... More

If our laws are to be respected, they must be enforced, which includes illegally entering our country. Otherwise, no law should be obeyed and enforced, regardless of the excuse. Employers should be fined and even jailed. Foreigners should not benefit from American taxpayer dollars just because they were desperate... More
