*One : Reduce Overall Levels of Legal Immigration*
The US is the third most populous country in the world after china and india ; neither the world nor the US needs more humans .
Approximately 1.4 million permanent immigrants arrive to the US annually , which is approximately 120,000 per month !
Which size of bureaucracy does such an influx demand from the US taxpayer ?
In 1965 there was a quota of 150,000 , which was doubled to 300,000 and chain immigration was added for direct and extended family members (foreign wives and foreign husbands followed by their foreign families , ad nausea) , which was not subject to a quota , all first come first serve over job skill !
In addition to unemployment , there are concerns for the environment , encroachment on other species and limitations for natural resources .
*Two : Reduce Legal Visas to Host Countries Based Upon The Number of Illegal Immigrants from Those Countries*
The 2007 Center for Immigration Studies survey found that between 1980 and 2007 approximately 37 million legal immigrants came to the US , and 54% combined were from mexico , central and south america , with 1 illegal for every legal from mexico and central america and 1 illegal for every two legals from south america .
The US is responsible for its own legal immigration policies and by poignantly reducing legal visas to citizens of host countries , without granting amnesty , those individuals who are here legally from those countries and who want their family to join them , or those who want to come to the US from those countries , are most influential and capable of controlling , prohibiting , and especially not granting quarter to those who are here illegally .
*Three : Have Host Countries Grant Citizenship to The Child of Illegal Mothers at Birth*
Although the US Fourteenth amendment grants citizenship by manifest destiny of birth in a State and in these United States , congress should adopt the following endeavour for public policy of law .
If a mother is illegally in the US and has a child , the United States policy should be to secure citizenship for the child from the host country of the mother .
The policy would mitigate any humanitarian issue of family separation and also prevent parents without proper documentation from acquiring social subsistence for their children – who would otherwise be citizens , based upon their income .
