We can't just stick our head in the ground and scream the system works. It doesn't and we have been shown that.

It is simply amazing to me that many of those in this thread that are in favor of everyone having to "show their papers" self-identify as "conservatives".
True conservatives demand minimal intrusion by the government into a citizen's day to day life.
This has a definite whiff of fascism to it. And we all know that fascism is far left wing, right?
And there isn't 'nothing' fascist about having to show our papers everywhere else in modern day life.

If you are here illegally you should have no more rights than the right to a speedy trial and deportation and basic human rights to avoid abuse.
A speedy trial, huh?
There's only 450,000 of them lined up. How many immigration courts are there? How many cases a day can each go through.
So, you agree that their rights are being violated?
I'm sorry...what? If the law is not being enforced, why is the backlog growing?
Currently our "great leader" chooses to not enforce this law
Since they are not legal citizens summary trials like i propose will work much better.

Fine lets go back to the laws before and see how you like it.
Fine by me my lineage dates back to the 1700s before there ever was a US.
But until we do some serious reform to the system people are going to do it. Building big walls and passing more laws, which I know you are ever so fond of, isn't going to do anything.
There doesn't need to be 'reform'. What needs to be done is laws ENFORCED.
The entire idea behind immigration law in the first place is to slow immigration to a trickle, and let the country absorb what it has. To make sure there are enough RESOURCES to go around.
In case people missed it. There's not enough to go around. This country doesn't need more people until it sorts out what it already has.

Well makes sense why you are not a judge, as that isn't how things work.
