Scott Keller on Immigration

 


Change Dream Act so everyone wins

Q: Should illegal immigrants earn citizenship?

A: Support. I would significantly change the Dream Act such that everyone wins from all sides of the issue and get significant collaboration in the effort. We need to overhaul the INS, streamline it, make it more efficient, and size it such that they can handle the load. I am not in favor of a fence on the border but rather a working relationship with the people on both sides of the border to address the root causes of the problems.

Build arcologies at the borders that serve as fences

We propose building arcologies at the borders to regulate and centralize immigration and language education as well as job training and social services.

This also operates as a fence if you string up a batch of them across the border, but more importantly it gives immigration a home at the border.

It also most importantly allows us to insulate and protect ourselves and regulate flow better by stalling it out if it doesn't pass basic reality tests like speaking English or being employable.

It also allows the USA to meaningfully test and reality test potential applicants and see how they really do objectively to score... and reject those who are lazy or who have serious issues as bad investments.
