Whereas the current system looks the other way (or rewards) illegal hiring, and encourages illegal immigration, our vision would:
Require employers to use the free, online system to verify that their new hires can work in the U.S.
Level the playing field for law-abiding workers and employers.
Discourage illegal immigration before it happens by removing the promise of illegal work.
Remove the temptation of employers to guess whether or not a person is authorized to work based on their appearance or speech.
ReEnvisioning: Interior Enforcement
Whereas a patchwork of laws and practices currently prohibit some local enforcement agencies from communicating with federal enforcement agencies, and prohibit federal immigration agents from doing their job, our vision would:
Require law enforcement and immigration agencies to talk to each other.
Require immigration law enforcement to do enforcement.
ReEnvisioning: Border Enforcement
Whereas the currently system releases inadmissible aliens into the country, our vision would:
Stop illegal immigration at the border.
Turn inadmissible aliens back at the border; or
Keep inadmissible aliens in safe detention until they are removed; or
Allow inadmissible aliens to wait in the safe contiguous country they passed through and apply for admission from there.
Clarify that asylum applies only to the internationally recognized definition of those who cannot be returned to the home country due to a well-founded fear of (state) persecution due to race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.
Whereas the current system doesn’t know if visitors leave when their visas expire, our vision would:
Complete the entry/exit system that Congress mandated thirty years ago. If we know when an Amazon package leaves the warehouse, we can know when people leave the country (or not).
