Why not just enact an "Immigration Reciprocity Act"? In other words, use the same laws of the immigrant's home country in their case. So anyone that comes from, say, Mexico would have the same laws that Mexico uses for their immigration applied to their citizens coming here. THAT would be interesting.

What a thought!

I take it you are not a Republican Representative?

Of course not. My plan uses common sense, and therefore requires a translator for anyone in elected office.

I'n sorry Rick but your proposals make no sense. We are trying to get something across that elected representatives lack the ability to even conceive. That a law is to be enforced by the goverment that passes it is bound by it , that it applies to everyone, and that Judges are legally bound to enforce it (a concept the judiciary completely fails to understand either)

During his SOTU address, President Obama touched on broad immigration reform principles and commended the work bipartisan groups in both chambers are doing to draft a bill. His tone seemed to indicate he would let Congress take the lead on immigration. “Send me a comprehensive immigration reform bill in the next few months and I will sign it,” he said during the speech. But on Saturday, the White House leaked details of its own immigration proposal, which Sen. Marco Rubio has called “dead on arrival.”
