How To Really Reform Immigration

cropped-flag-half-staff

A huge debate for the last few decades has been, how do we fix immigration in the United States.

You hear arguments from globalists that the Statue of Liberty basically says we have to take everyone.  Yet who is supposed to pay for them?

Our government has totally lost the plot when it comes to America.  They think we work for them and not them for us.  Well I have a simple solution for them.  I have the perfect plan to fix immigration in this country.  It is not racist, bigoted, Islamophobic or any other ist or phobic you can bring up.  It is simple common sense.

There are approximately 326 Million Americans in this country today, but it seems like the biggest fight is for 800,000 who aren’t.   There are approximately 11-13 million people here illegally, those who have crossed the border as well as those who overstayed visas.  So if you read that last sentence it takes the racist part out, because not all illegals are a certain race, nor of a certain country.

So here is how you fix DACA.  First off 800,000 people were brought here as children.  The original DACA was effective to those who can prove they were under 16 at the time they came to the US, and that have been here continually since June 15, 2007.  Now, let’s keep that date in mind because it is very important.

First thing, that date should be set in stone, it should not move, it should not update, and it should never change.  Otherwise if there is a possibility of renewal or update in time the borders are going to flood.

Second, anyone who is DACA eligible, MUST renew every three years, similar to how it is now.  There is no path to citizenship, by marriage or otherwise unless they go back to their country of record.  They can never take any benefits from the government, such as Social Security, Medicare, etc.  They will pay payroll tax, Social Security, Medicare in their checks.  They are NOT eligible to receive a rebate of more than the taxes they paid in, ever.  If at anytime they are not going to school (must pay out of state tuition), working or serving in the military, they cannot be renewed.  The only path for citizenship will be serving in the military for a minimum of 20 years and have an honorable retirement.

Finally if they are ever charged for any crime at all, they are deported, no questions asked, and at their expense.

There DACA is now solved.

Any others here illegally should be deported, either on their own or with the help of ICE.  If you enforce E-Verify, and hold both the employers accountable, as well as the illegal employees, there will not be any work for them.  So why stay?

Now to fix the rest of the immigration system.

First off you have to build the wall.  Not just to discourage illegal immigration, but also illegal drugs.  Will it stop all of it, no, but if it can stop a big part of it, it is worth the expense.  Studies have shown that the cost of illegals to American’s is approximately $113-134 Billion a year.  The cost of the wall, even high end is about $20 Billion, so not only would it save us around $100 Billion the first year, it would save us even more as time goes on.  Think about it.  The Democrats are complaining that the GOP Tax Cut would cost tax payers $1.5 Trillion over 10 years.  Fixing this problem would save us $1.32 Trillion over that same 10 years.  Plus if you want Mexico to pay for it, you can do it two different ways, you can charge or increase the amount for a visitor visa coming from Mexico, you can also take a percentage of any money sent to Mexico from people here.  But honestly I think the wall would eventually pay for itself in no time at all.

Now with the current job market expanding, and unemployment down to a 17 year low of 4.1%, three things can happen.

First, get able body people off welfare and put them to work, give companies incentives to go into poverty areas and rebuild, and you can train the population to be able to do the jobs.

Once that is completed then you can start a program to bring people in from other countries to fill available jobs.  These visas would be done similar to how DACA is done, you come in and can renew them every three years as long as you are employed, if you commit any crimes you too are deported at your expense. If you do it this way, it actually gives the government incentive to try to make a more business friendly environment in the country and everyone wins.

Next to the prisoners in our prison system, they need to be sent back to their country of origin and if the countries will not take them and jail them, we cut any money we are currently sending them.

Next you end chain migration, period.  If you get a green card to move here, you can bring your spouse and your children, period.  No mothers, fathers, uncles, aunts, cousins twice removed. Plus whoever thought a Visa Lottery was a good idea is an absolute idiot.

Finally, you end anchor baby status.  I would like the Supreme Court to state the obvious.  The Constitution of the United States only applies to citizens of the United States.  I do not believe our founding fathers wrote that document to cover the world, actually just the opposite.

If someone in Congress is truly there to represent the American People this is the only option that makes sense.  If they aren’t there to represent the American People they need to step down, or we need to remove them at the ballot box.  This is not a Republican vs Democrat thing because you have members of both parties who would be just happy if we had open borders and everyone can vote.  That is not what the Constitution was written for.

Common Sense Infrastructure Plan

AAEAAQAAAAAAAALDAAAAJDA5OTk5YTkxLTExNTctNDJhYy1hMTgwLTZmZTI5ZTUwYWIzYg

Our roads are in disarray, our airports are in bad shape, and now it is time to fix it.

President Trump is talking about a $1 TRILLION Infrastructure plan and I really have some ideas on how to make this work out good for everyone involved.  Let’s look at these projects one by one.

We will start off with the easiest one.  Airports.

Right now 93% of airports are government owned.  That is part one of the problem.  Why not sell them to private owners?  They can charge the airlines rent for space, which I am sure the government is hopefully already doing, and they can also control the space inside.  Let the new owners be responsible for upgrades to both the airport as well as the airstrips.  At the same time they can also take over for the TSA and Air Traffic Controllers.  If you have a business running the airport, their reputation is more on the line than the current joke of the government running it.  I have lost track of how many reports I have seen where TSA has about a 5% success rate finding weapons and such in tests.  There are approximately 376 major airports in the US, that is an airport with regular commercial traffic.  Mind you, they vary in size, but let’s say the government could sell them to a private company for an average of say $100 Million.  Mind you airports like Newark, JFK, Reagan, etc. could probably go in the $500 Million – $1 Billion range.  So we will average them to $100 Million for a low ball number, that would be an additional $37.6 Billion to the government and would save the government billions a year just in operating expenses. Pretty simple.

Next step, Schools:

This is one of the tricky ones, hard to put this in a private option, but I have an idea, that should apply not only to this one, but the rest on the list.  When this or any government funded job is bid for there needs to be two conditions:  First, they need to know up front there will be no additional money outside the bid, so they have to keep it within budget.  If they go over budget, they do it out of their own pocket, but if they can complete the job correctly under budget, they can keep the money and be put at the front of the line for similar jobs.  Secondly, they have to finish the jobs early or on time.  You can give them a small bonus for finishing early and put on the top of the list for future jobs, but they will get a fine if they are late and be moved to the bottom of the list for future jobs.

Next step, Bridges:

Fact is the countries bridges are in pretty bad shape. As of 2016 10% of the nation’s bridges were structurally deficient and needed repair.  And of the 250 most trafficked bridges in need of repair 85% were built before 1970.  So how do we do this without the government eating the entire cost.  First off the rules from schools apply, and you can do it 2 ways.  You can use a toll system, but there has to be limitations on what can be charged and for how long.  You can let companies build them for “free”, but with a written budget.  They can charge a toll on that bridge until they have received double their investment, then the toll is over.   Interstate/Highway bridges could be done the same way as schools, to keep tolls off the interstate.

Next step, Roads:

Here are my issue with toll roads, I have driven the New Jersey Turnpike, which is a toll road if you are not familiar with it.  It covers a good portion of New Jersey.  The road is in miserable shape, yet the tolls just go up.  So I am going to say this, for the interstate, use the schools rule.  For anyone wanting to do a road as a toll road, they have two options.  They can have the same deal as bridges, where they can make double their investment, or they can make triple their investment, but be 100% liable to keep the roads in good shape for a specific amount of time.  For companies who are wanting to set up a new location, they can deduct 120% of the expense to build a road to their new factory/store from their taxes.  Yes it may be a big tax break, but would you rather save the money up front and have that new business up and running, creating jobs, which in turn will create more taxes from the employees?  Or the government build the road, or worse, the company decide not to build a plant?

Finally, inner cities:

There are a lot of people in inner cities that are suffering from years of being held down and put into the poverty trap by the government, well it is time to release the trap and get them back to work.  For any business that sets up in and near inner cities, that business can be run with half the federal tax for a term of 5 years, but instead of 5 years in a row and they can move on, they will get that in year 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9.  If they do projects to improve the general area, they too get the 120% discount.

If you do all these things, you can get $1-2 Trillion worth of infrastructure done for about $150-300 Billion, put a few million people to work, and increase tax revenue to the government, so it is a win-win for everyone.   Plus by regulating the length of time for tolls, it would not hurt the people in the area that much.

Ending Illegal Immigration

First off this is not about Mexicans, I personally have nothing against them, and they aren’t the only problem.

This is not even about immigration, though that will be discussed as well in this.

This is about illegal immigration.

This needs to come to an end and I have solution to solve this problem.

There are estimates that there are about 11 million people here illegally.  I believe that number is low.

Now if you want to know how to end illegal immigration, here is how you do it.

First off if you are here illegally, you cannot work here.  If someone hires you, they go to jail too.  If you cannot come here legally, why do you think you should have a job here when there are still roughly 100 million Americans out of work?  Sure some of those are retired, some of those are in college, but I can bet you they aren’t all out of work.   Best way for America to end our own welfare program and save trillions of dollars is to have more jobs for Americans.

Of course the argument is that there are jobs Americans won’t do.  If you have a choice to work on a farm, or be homeless because the government hand outs are gone, you are probably going to be working on a farm.

Next, if you are here illegally you cannot go to our schools.  Again schools are paid for with tax payer money, if you are here illegally you should have no part of it.

Of course the argument for that is that the children came here not on their own.  Well then just as their parents are responsible for their upbringing, they are responsible to take them back to their home country.  If you give any path, such as DACA for them to stay, you are opening the flood gates for more to come here.

Next, if you are here illegally you cannot go to our hospitals or see our doctors.  Since Obamacare is government funded, it is once again tax payers picking up the bill.

Of course the argument is that the hospitals are required to take everyone.  No, actually they aren’t.

Next, if you come here illegally and have a child, that child should not be a citizen, and you should not be granted a green card, or worse, citizenship, just because you gave birth here.

Of course the argument goes to, but the Constitution says…..  Reality check folks, if you are not here legally, the Constitution of the United States of America should not apply to you.  The Constitution is for citizens, not illegals.

Next, if you come here illegally, you will never be granted citizenship, no matter if you go back to your home of record and try to get in line to do it the right way, the second you cross the border illegally, or over stay your visa, you give up any right to ever be a citizen.

Of course you have people who say they have been here for years, have worked hard and paid taxes.  Well I ask you this, if you are here illegally, and are “working” you have either stolen or made up a Social Security number, or are getting paid under the table and not claiming the income, so how are you really paying taxes?

Finally if you come here over the border, or over staying your visa, and you don’t have the cash to get back to your home of record I have a solution for that too.  Remember those jobs they said Americans won’t do?  You can do them, without receiving pay, until you build enough credit for a ticket back to your home of record.

I am not sorry when I say that may not sound fair, but you should not have broken the law to begin with coming here or over staying your visa.

Speaking of the law, right now the argument is that coming here is a civil offense and not a criminal offense.  Well it is time for Congress to fix that too.  If you come here illegally, or over stay a visa and are caught it should be an automatic felony.

You will hear the argument that illegals tend to commit less crimes than Americans in general, but the fact is, 1 crime by an illegal is too many, because that crime never would have been committed here, had they not been here.

If you do all those things, you will stop illegal immigration.  Not only that you will save the tax payers billions, if not trillions of dollars a year because you will be able to basically kill the welfare system, because people will not have an excuse not to work.

Sure, this all sounds pretty harsh, but why shouldn’t it?  If I went to another country in the world illegally, or over stayed my visa, I would probably be in jail.  So what makes illegals here special?

Of course we need a wall, and we need to be able to protect our borders.  Without a border we do not have a country.

God Bless America!

More Vegas Shooting Questions

It has now been almost 7 weeks since the October 1st Massacre in Las Vegas, and I think it is very fair to say at this point we have way more questions than answers.

I am not now, nor never have been, a conspiracy type guy.  I try to look at things logically. But even I am at the point I am really wondering what are they not telling us.

First off, why did the killer bust out two windows?

mandalay-bay-shooting-5

Now if you look at the pic above, I have circled roughly where the two windows were that he busted out and I have wondered this for 7 weeks.  If there was only one shooter/person in the room, why did they need to bust out TWO windows that they could get the same shot range from?  There isn’t really a single shot that could not have been made to the same spot from both windows unless he had decided to open fire on the Luxor, which he didn’t.  So why break two windows?

My next question is, they said they found a laptop in his room, but it didn’t have a hard drive, they also said that he had cameras set up in the hall to monitor if someone came down the hall.  So what did he monitor them with?  There are only so many inputs in a hotel TV, and without a hard drive he couldn’t hook them to his laptop because it wouldn’t have the software to run them without a hard drive.  So how did he do it?

Next up, they found his car in the parking lot, loaded with both more weapons, but also explosives, if he had really planned this out to the letter, as they try to make us believe, why would he block the emergency exits on the floor?  Because anyone with common sense would know you would not get down by an elevator.

The shooting went on for approximately 10 minutes and then stopped cold.  Now they are saying he started shooting after shooting the guard in the hall, now again, they say he had cameras in the hall to monitor if people were coming, and had thousands of rounds left in the room, but suddenly stopped when the police got to the door.  If he was willing to shoot the guard, and then shoot hundreds of more people at the concert, why not go out with a blaze of glory and open fire again at the police in the hall?

Why have we not seen more of the pics of the room, I understand not showing his body, but where are all the spent rounds?  I have seen quite a few videos of the shooting and I have yet to see any muzzle flashes coming from the direction of the room.  So unless he was sitting deeper in the room you would expect to see that, especially with that rate of fire.  What evidence do you have in a case you are swearing was a single lunatic that you need to keep private at this point.

How can a 64 year old man, who is a millionaire, basically be a ghost?  We know he was married, and had a lot of money, but that is it.  No social media footprint at all.  But what about emails, phone records, texts?  Why keep that info so tight to the vest?

Speaking of being married, where is his wife?  Did she go back to the Philippines?

Speaking of the guard.  The best witness they could have at the time, why let him travel to Mexico immediately after the incident, especially after he was hit with a .223 bullet at very close range.  A solid leg shot probably could have removed a good chunk of it, but yet he can go to Mexico and drive himself back.  So what is the real story and timeline?

What real info have we gotten since this incident?  Well the body count, and his name, that he used a bump stock and a timeline that has changed three or four times now, and I would not be surprised if it changed again.  We haven’t really gotten anything else and that is a problem.

Only reasons you keep this much information secret after almost seven weeks, is you know way more than you are letting on and trying to capture an accomplice, or accomplices.  Second, you realize that the public is not going to like the truth, and with the Mandalay Bay now facing massive law suits wanting to keep that information private for now, because you know the end result will lead to the Mandalay Bay shutting down, and maybe taking a couple more MGM properties down with it.

But again, I am not a conspiracy guy, but this certainly is one of those hmm situations.

Russian Collusion Or Not?

For the last year there have been rumors the President Trump and President Putin colluded to rig the election.  There is an FBI Special Counselor, and both the Senate and House have investigations looking into it.  But the one thing not happening is no one is looking at this with any common sense at all.  So here I am.

In this blog I am going to go over some pretty simple points and claims that have been made and ask some simple questions about them.

First point: Russia tried to hack the election and stole DNC Emails.

Here is where the whole thing goes off the rails from the start.  Do you realize just how many programs there are out there that mask or change IP addresses?  Now if I was Russia and I wanted to hack the election or steal emails, why would I leave traces such as my IP address?  Secondly the DNC emails were hacked because they were phished, not hacked.  Podesta gave whoever took the emails his password.  But I go back to my original point.  Russia has been spying for decades, as have we.  Do you think we leave IP traces?  Do you think a skilled hacker sitting home in his basement leaves his actual IP trace?  This is where this whole thing goes off the rails.  Also you have Julian Assange stating up front and quite clearly the information did not come from the Russians, and I don’t really care what you may think of wikileaks, but they have not been proven wrong in 11 years, why do you think they would give up their reputation now to protect President Trump or Russia?  The Trump Administration is actually trying to put Assange in jail, so why would he freely admit something to protect Trump?

Second Point: 17 US Intel agencies claim they know Russia Meddled in the Election, oh wait, maybe it was just three.

This was the running story for almost a year, and is still used by Democrat pundits in the media as talking points, that it was 17 agencies, when in reality it was only 3.  John Brennan of the CIA,  James Clapper of the DNI and James Comey from the FBI.  Do any of these three gentlemen even have any credibility left at this point? So again, what real proof is there?

Third and Final Point: Russia Meddled in the US Election.

This one is easiest of all.  Guilty as charged, but then again so is every major country in the world, including the United States of America.  President Obama tried to get Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel beat in his election.  President Obama also told the British people they would be moved to the “back of the queue” as far as trade deals go if they supported Brexit.  Yet there was never any condemnation of that from the media.  Countries have meddled in other elections since there was modern day press and communication.  I am sure Trump showing so much support for President Abe of Japan, President Macron of France, his dislike of President Neito of Mexico will all likely effect those elections.  Not saying they will change a lot of minds, but some may be changed.  Though the reality of any election on a national scale tends to come down to personality, plans, proposals and agenda.

So can we just stop with the nonsense and realize we have a country to take care of?  ISIS doesn’t need to really attack us on the home front, we are doing plenty of damage to ourselves without their help.

The Democrats, Party of Illegals, Not Citizens

The Democrats during JFK was the party of the middle class.  My how times have changed.  Now you have Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi claiming she will shut down the government unless DACA is approved.  She won’t talk about cutting taxes for Americans, other than to trash what the GOP is doing.  She says in one breath the lives of the DACA recipients are very important, but demands funding for Planned Parenthood that kills children.  She wants, and this is a running theme among Democrats in Congress, that she basically wants open borders, a path for citizenship for those who have came here illegally and yet plans that look out for American Tax Payers don’t seem to matter to her.

When is the last time you heard of a Democrat talk about cutting spending?  The only time they seem to care if about the debt is when the GOP comes up with an idea to cut our tax burden.  They had no problem running it up $10T in 8 years, and $15T in the last 16 years.  Mainly they talk about more tax increases and I have to ask, what gives them the right to take more of our money?

The Democrat party used to say they were the party for the working man, now they are the party of the lazy man.  Their ultimate goal is to get as many people on Government benefits (aka Government dependent), so any Republican or person running on the platform of looking out for the tax payers is suddenly evil because they may take those “benefits” away.  The Democrats want to get as many people, both citizens and people here illegally living off the government as possible.  They are not the Democratic party, they are Socialist in sheep’s clothing.  At least Bernie is honest about being a Socialist.

Here is the oath that someone takes when they become a Representative or Senator.

Oaths of Office For Federal Officials - Google Chrome 2017-11-11 09.53.54

Yet they basically are wanting to systematically ignore or rewrite the Constitution.  They have become a domestic enemy because they could care less about the American people, and can even care less about American Tax Payers.  You have liberal judges in the system making law, not interpreting it.  You have Congress mandating health care, when there is nothing in the Constitution to support it.

So who’s side are they on?  Why take an oath you have no intention of following?  Why run to serve the people and then rob them blind.  And yes, I understand it isn’t just the Democrats doing this, you have so called Republicans on the Open Border train.

Not sure what can truly be done, because in a lot of districts/states, if you are an incumbent you basically keep getting elected until you retire or die, or really mess up, even though I am not sure that even applies anymore when you have Representatives Maxine Waters, Adam Shiff, Ted Lieu, Debbie Wasserman Shultz, Frederica Wilson, John Lewis, Al Green, etc.

I am just tired of seeing our so called Government ignoring the fact they are supposed to be working FOR us, not AGAINST us.

How to Cut Down Mass Shootings.

First off the shooting in Texas was an absolute tragedy, with a ton of errors on what should of, could of happened to “stop” it.

First off this guy was deranged, yet calculated.  His goal was to shoot and to get away, or he would not have bothered wearing a mask.  The Air Force, during the Obama Administration screwed up by not reporting his Court Martial trial results to the FBI which would have stopped him from getting the guns to begin with.  But I think he likely would have found another way to get them.  Criminals are not scared to skirt the law to get what they need to commit their crimes.

There are only TWO things in common with the top 10 mass shootings in the last 20 years.

Las Vegas – 58 Dead.

Orlando – 49 Dead

Virginia Tech – 32 Dead

Sandy Hook – 27 Dead

Sutherland Springs TX – 26 Dead (so far)

San Bernardino – 14 Dead

Ft Hood – 13 Dead

Binghamton NY – 13 Dead

Washington Navy Yard – 13 Dead

Aurora Colorado – 12 Dead.

The only TWO things in common with all 10 of these murders.  First a gun was used by the killer.  Secondly they were ALL and in the case of Las Vegas I am talking about both the hotel itself as well as the concert were GUN FREE ZONES.

Now am I saying you have to arm every locale in the country? No, but I am saying the option should be there and no place should be listed a Gun Free Zone.  If you are wanting to cause maximum destruction you are going to go to the places with the least resistance.  If you have to wonder if the place you are wanting to attack might have someone armed there, you may think twice before going in.  Is that going to stop every mass shooting?  Again, the answer is no, because you cannot stop evil.  You could confiscate every legal gun in the country, and murder rates would go through the roof.  God gave us the right to protect ourself.  Not our country, not even our Constitution, but we have the God given right to protect ourself.

Thing is you have to have good guys with guns to stop bad guys with guns.  Mind you when those situations happen they do not get the same press as when the killer gets away or commits suicide, etc.  There are thousands of instances a year of good guy stopping bad guy.   The liberals are fast at the draw at calling out the NRA, but in reality none of those 10 above were members of the NRA, and in the case of the Texas shooting on Sunday it was a member of the NRA who stopped the murderer from killing even more.  Had he not been there the killer could have easily gotten in his truck and got away before the cops ever got there, and you never know when he would attack again.  Because his goal was not to get caught.  Why else would he wear a mask?  It was easy enough for him to case the inside of the church without ever stepping foot in it.  They put all their services on YouTube for those who could not go and to spread the word.  It was a small church so there really were no places to escape to.   If someone had been carrying concealed they would have at least had a chance.  That applies to all 10 of those shootings, even Las Vegas, because had the security guard been armed, or someone on the floor been armed, it could have ended the shooting sooner, especially considering the killer allegedly fired 200+ rounds into the hall before shooting out the window, because if the bullets could go through the wall out into the hall, there is nothing stopping a bullet to go through the wall into the room.  It may not have hit him immediately, but it may have given him more pause.

We do not have to turn the country back into the wild west, but people who want to responsibly carry, go through safety training, and practice at the range on a fairly consistent basis, should be able to carry where ever they want.  Because I am sorry, if someone comes in shooting at a place I am at, I would much rather at least have a chance to fight back, then to hope I become a helpless target.

When is the last time you heard of someone with a concealed carry permit actually committing a crime?  I can bet you now, you would have a hard time finding it, yet finding a case where someone carrying concealed has stopped crimes is fairly easy because it happens hundreds if not thousands of times a year .
