I dunno give them some time to be creative and fair I suppose.
The last thing you want is everybody getting upset and the result is another "shutdown."
Some of the key things in mind about the border are
removing a plant from controlled substances act and southern states taking partial legalization measures for those 21 and over- this will likely help
in several areas:
* Should serve to reduce violence on the border while simultaneously reducing the importation of certain drugs and should focus more resources toward
stopping the flow of more lethal and harmful drugs.
* Should serve to reduce prison population and "human warehousing" in the US
* Should reduce any existing tensions and worries between citizens and police forces and possibly save lives due to a reduced number of home raids and
*Moves burn containers to checkpoints and other locations with heavy drug traffic
Creates a more catch a release type action- you get caught you get turned back
*takes a more humanized approach to border enforcement
*Fund the existing border patrol and ice agents
*Places additional agents at "weak points" on the border.
*Channels and encourages more people to use existing entry and exit points
*Prevents land ownership by immigrants in the US for a period of not less than 10 years *similar to Mexico*
*Respects civil and human rights of foreign citizens under US jurisdiction- includes food, water and some medical supplies for those crossing arrid
*Restricts the use of drones to a 100 mile radius on the border
*Grants and recognizes citizenship for those with no criminal histories, proven work history in the agriculture sector for ten years and children BORN
*Deports any immigrant with a violent
*Establishes a limit to the number of immigrants the US will accept yearly
Creates a triple purpose card
*Card serves as an immigrant ID/debit and limits the number of dollars sent to Mexico
* Promotes saving money for housing, bills and spending money here in the US in local stores and goods, as well as establishes an option for a childs
trust fund for college
* establishes at least an equal minimum wage and minimum age for immigrant workers
* establishes a fair hiring practice for us citizens who want to try their hand at "workin on the farm"
* Gets more US citizens into our agricultural sector including farm ownership, urban farming and agribusiness along with tax credits and start up
grants for mechanical and equipment assistance.
Wait some of that can go into the ag bills huh?
Now I'm never for much "pork" :/ but I really do think we need some sort of large water harvesting and water purification method for southern states.
Seems like they need water the most. Maybe its a bit extreme but a huge aquaduct could do people good. Create jobs, fill water shortages, transport
water to watersheds and such.. possibly create higher vantage points for agents O.o
We know gates and fences don't work too well.
Dunno, does that sound fair to everyone?
