Repeal the 1965 immigration bill. No more anchor baby's, and send them home. Then finish the fence, and put armed patrols on the boarder. Then come talk to me about "reform".

Reform refers to correcting something that is wrong. If Congress did what you suggest, that would be reform. Unfortunately, all Congress wants to do is make it a worse mess than it already is.

REAL immigration reform:

1) We need almost entirely EDUCATED immigrants; change our legal policy back to emphasize that, as it did before 1965, NOT family reunification, which has simply populated the permanently dependent underclass.

Hispanics have grown from 2% since 1980 to almost 16%; most are poor and undereducated-- a formula for socio-economic disaster and an expanding permanent underclass.

Attach green cards to graduate degrees granted in math and the sciences. If a legal Mexican woman earns a masters in computer science here, give her a Green Card!

2) Pass national E-verify to assure (and require) workplace enforcement...simple and inexpensive. WE show valid I.D. just to buy groceries or board a flight!

3) Finish the fully-funded border fence; it works in San Diego; it need not go the whole length of the border, as parts of the border are impassable. Our Border Patrol says it would work...they are suing Obama for ordering them to stand down from doing their jobs.

4) Clamp down on welfare services going ILLEGALLY to non-citizens....this is an IMMENSE problem, aided and abetted by the handout bureaucrats

5) Reinterpret the 14th Amendment PROPERLY...if an ambassador has a child here, that child is NOT a citizen...those who sneak across the border or overstay visas to push out babies here should not then have an "anchor baby" citizen child to snag welfare with

Do THESE things, and ILLEGALS will repatriate attritively, just as they got here-- at THEIR expense! Vamanos muchachos a Mexico!
