Ten Principles of Immigration

1. The purpose
of immigration policy is to benefit the citizens of the
United States.

2. As
immigration shapes the country, immigration policy
should be set by action, not accident.

3. Policy is
set by laws that are enforced.

4. There is no
legal right for non-citizens to remain in the U.S,
whatsoever. Non-citizens enter the United States as
guests and may be removed at will by the government of
the U.S.

5. The U.S.
states should keep track of guests while they visit.

6. Those who
enter the U.S. illegally or remain beyond the terms of
their visas are criminals and should be regarded as
such. Anyone doing so should be permanently barred from
entering the U.S. for any purpose.

7. Guests who
will not be accepted for return to their home countries
may be detained by the government until such time as
their home country or suitable alternative country will
accept them.

8. Adjustments
of status must take place in the applicant`s home
country. The only purpose bouncing among the alphabet
soup of visa categories serves is to feed immigration
lawyers.

9. There must
be numerical limits on immigration. Numbers determine
funding. If funding is set at one level and the number
of people allowed is set at a higher level, you have a
mess.

10. It is not
possible for everyone in the world to live in the United
States.
