Default The Duffman Immigration Reform Plan

Since it's gotten dead in here since everyone's playing "Wasteland War", I'm rolling out a new edition of how I, Duffman, would change government. Since I have no chance of running or being elected to anything, it's all in the interests of debate & discussion.

The focus of this edition is immigration and related issues.

Under my plan, all people in the U.S. would fall into one of four groups: (1) citizens, (2) citizen applicants (3) visitors, and (4) illegal aliens.

Citizens, obviously enough, are people who fully satisfy the legal requirements to be a citizen, which means they're the biological or legally adopted child of a citizen, or they completed the naturalization process. Children of non-citizens born within the boundaries of the country are not citizens - they assume the status of their mother or (in the event of the mother's death) the father.

Citizen Applicants are people have applied for citizenship, and been accepted. Citizen applicants will have a specifc period of time to complete their naturalization process - failure to complee the process in the specified time leads to revocation of citizen applicant status, and changes their status to "visitor".

Visitors are tourists and students, who have a visa that specifically states how long they may remain in the U.S. Overstaying one's visa is a crime that (a) will be strictly enforced, and (2) disqualify one from citizen applicant status for an extended period of time.

Illegal Aliens are everyone else.

The natualization process requires the citizen applicant do the following:
At time of application:
(a) Demonstrate they have secured a job that provides them with a means of supporting themselves and any dependents. Children born to citizen applicants are themselves citizen applicants, regardless of where they're born.
(b) Demonstrate that they have lined up a suitable place to live.
(c) Otherwise demonstrate that they are going to be self-sufficient and not become a burden.
To complete naturalization, specific requirements must be satisifed:
(a) Demonstrate an ability to function in english.
(b) Demonstrate a basic understanding of the functioning of the U.S government.
(c) Complete manadatory training that emphasizes the concepts of "the melting pot" and that the U.S. is based on assimilation, not differentiation.

All government business will be conducted in english. While the ability to speak foreign languages is certainly admirable and should be taught in elementary school - our government does business in english - and only english.

Likewise, all government programs, funding, protections, etc... will be revisited to ensure that a consistent program of assimilation is promoted.

Visitors are tourists and students, who have a visa that specifically states how long they may remain in the U.S. Overstaying one's visa is a crime that (a) will be strictly enforced, and (2) disqualify one from citizen applicant status for an extended period of time, up to and including permanently.

Illegal Aliens are everyone else.

The natualization process requires the citizen applicant do the following:
At time of application:
(a) Demonstrate they have secured a job that provides them with a means of supporting themselves and any dependents. Children born to citizen applicants are themselves citizen applicants, regardless of where they're born.

(b) Demonstrate a basic understanding of the functioning of the U.S government.
(c) Complete manadatory training that emphasizes the concepts of "the melting pot" and that the U.S. is based on assimilation, not differentiation.
(d) Sign an agreement that shows the applicant understands that he will be denied citizenship if he cannot stay out of trouble. Any offenses, including uninsured driving, will get him deported and ineligible for future consideration.
All government business will be conducted in english. While the ability to speak foreign languages is certainly admirable and should be taught in elementary school - our government does business in english - and only english. With no translators allowed except for accomodating the deaf or blind.
Likewise, all government programs, funding, protections, etc... will be revisited to ensure that a consistent program of assimilation is promoted.

A bit better.
