Seal the border; enforce the laws

We need to seal the boarder. Enforce the laws we have.

Feds have failed to enforce; enact E-verify nationwide

The problem we have in America is the lack of the federal government owning up to its shortcomings with regard to immigration. The failure to enforce the immigration laws over the years has cost local and federal government billions of dollars. I believe there are a few things that need to be done to help curtail this national problem:

Repeal the 14th Amendment to exclude illegal aliens' kids

Because of the 14th Amendment, if a child is born in this country and the parents are illegally in this country, the child is still a US citizen. Thus, the social services system must give benefits to the child. Should the parents be deported, the child would become the ward of the state. However, most of the time, deportation does not occur and the parents get a back door entry into the US. Bottom line: they jump ahead of those who are trying to enter the country in a lawful and appropriate way.

The 14th Amendment was enacted after the Civil War, to ensure the former slaves would not be deported and would have Constitutional rights. Now, we all can agree it took many decades to ensure freedom among the African American citizens. But we also have to acknowledge that the cost of absorbing those who are illegally in our country is not helping the budgets.

I believe there are a few things that need to be done to help curtail this national problem; [among them]: Repeal the 14th Amendment.
