Threaten drone strikes against any country who doesn't immediately and effectively put a halt to illegal immigration into our country. Start holding these leaders accountable - use sanctions, threat of force, embarrassment or any other means necessary
You have to take off the gloves to defeat a determined enemy. Deploying US troops along international borders for law enforcement support and anti-drug operations is well established and actually fully authorized by Congress. It just so happens these operations go hand in hand.
We also need to summarily hear/evaluate asylum claims vs. letting them come into the country. Those without hard evidence to back up their claim of State persecution (and only state violence) need to be turned away. Put them on a plane (with large groups) and fly them 3,000 miles away. Trust me they will get sick and tired of making the trip only to be assuredly turned away and sent thousands of miles to do it all over again
Demoralize them and eliminate their will to break our laws, defraud the United States, burden our system and violate our sovereignty. Put up signs and leaflets saying "The trip ahead is dangerous, you will not be permitted entry, your asylum fraud will disqualify you for life from every being admitted entry, etc"
Set up a minefield along problem areas, I guarantee nobody tries to cross it. Ask Cuba how well it works. Use layers of defensive emplacements AKA defense in depth. If we have to, go a couple hundred feet into Mexico for the purpose of preventing them from actually reaching our borders. Physically stop them. It isn't an invasion, it is just a security operation they wouldn't be consulted on or have any choice to accept/decline. But not an invasion...
Whatever it takes
The Asylum Filing Deadline Denying Protection to the Persecuted and Undermining Governmental EfficiencyThis definition is based on international law, specifically the 1951 UN Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees. The U.S. is not a signatory to this Convention, but did sign on to its 1967 Protocol, which incorporates the Convention by reference. The Refugee Convention requires state parties to protect people living within their borders and prohibits them from sending people to other countries where they would be harmed based on their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. With the Refugee Act of 1980, the U.S. brought the refugee definition into our domestic law. The refugee definition is found at section 101(a)(42) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA)
