Working for logical immigation reform based on a stable population, a recognition of the finite nature of our natural resources and the adverse impact of continued growth on our quality of life, standard of living, national interest, character, language, sovereignty and the rule of law. Pushing back and countering the disloyal elements in American society and the anti-American rhetoric of the leftwing illegal alien lobbies. In a debate, when your opponents turn to name calling, it's a good sign you've already won.

22 Principles for Immigration Reform

1. The primary purpose of U.S. immigration policy is to benefit the citizens of the United States not all those the impoverished, disease-infested, crime-ridden neighborhoods of the world who might wish to come here.
2. Since immigration policy can profoundly shape a country, it should be set by deliberate actions, not by accident or acquiescence, with careful consideration to ensure that it does not adversely affect the quality of life of American citizens and their communities.
3. Immigration policy should be based on and adhere to the rule of law. Immigration laws must be enforced consistently and uniformly throughout the United States.
4. Non-citizens enter the United States as guests and must obey the rules governing their entry. The U.S. government must track the entry, stay, and departure of all visa-holders to ensure that they comply fully with the terms of their visas, or to remove them if they fail to comply.
5. The borders of the United States must be physically secured at the earliest possible time. An effective barrier to the illegal entry of both aliens and contraband is vital to U.S. security.
6. Those responsible for facilitating illegal immigration shall be sought, arrested and prosecuted to the full extent of the law and shall forfeit any profits from such activity. This applies to smugglers and traffickers of people, as well as to those involved in the production, procurement, distribution, or use of fraudulent or counterfeit documents.
7. U.S. employers shall be given a simple and streamlined process to determine whether employees are legally eligible to work. Employers who obey the law shall be protected both from liability and from unfair competition by those who violate immigration law. The violators shall be subject to fines and taxes in excess of what they would have paid to employ U.S. citizens and legal residents for the same work.
8. Those who enter or remain in the United States in violation of the law shall be detained and removed expeditiously. Illegal aliens shall not accrue any benefit, including U.S. citizenship, as a result of their illegal entry or presence in the United States.
9. No federal, state or local entity shall reward individuals for violating immigration laws by granting public benefits or services, or by issuing or accepting any form of identification, or by providing any other assistance that facilitates unlawful presence or employment in this country. All federal and law enforcement agencies shall cooperate fully with federal immigration authorities, and shall report to such authorities any information they receive indicating that an individual may have violated immigration laws.
10. Illegal aliens currently in the United States may be afforded a one-time opportunity to leave the United States without penalty and seek permission to reenter legally if they qualify under existing law. Those who do not take advantage of this opportunity will be removed and permanently barred from returning.
11. Birthright citizenship should be granted only to those children born in the U.S. who have at least one parent who is a citizen. Birthright citizenship should be conferred only when a child reaches the age of 21 or when he or she enlists in the armed forces for not less than four years.
12. Illegal aliens who are removed must take all minor children with them regardless of their citizenship or be charged with child abuse.
13. Any policy that grants blanket legalization to illegal aliens that permits them to remain and work in the U.S. is defined as amnesty.
14. A national objective of a stable population with a soft landing for our economy should be adopted by congress to be achieved within 20 years.
15. Immigration should be constrained by the needs for skilled labor with preference given to those who speak English.
16. Immigration and tax policies must be designed to enable the achievement of a stable population and a reduction in the U.S total annual production of green house gases.
17. Chain immigration must be eliminated. Relatives and spouses must apply for legal immigration as a family unit and must counted against the overall immigration quota.
18. Immigration policies must exclude any applicants with beliefs inimical to American democratic ideals and those who adhere to religious dogma or law which advocates violence against other religious adherents or the abrogation of human right for any U.S. citizens.
19. Population-driven economic growth is unsustainable in the long run and will increase environmental destruction and climate change.
20. In the 21st century, it is morally wrong for one people to displace,dispossess, subjugate,or exterminate another people or culture as we and the Spaniards and countless others have tended to do in the past to the indigenous peoples of the Western Hemisphere.
21. The natural resources of the U.S. and the world are not inexhaustible and that fact should govern our population and immigration policies.
22. It is extraordinarily selfish of all concerned with population and environmental policies to allow species like the magnificent polar bear become extinct.
