Clair Van Steenwyk's view on the Securing Borders & Immigration Reform

 Positions on Natural Born, Birth Right Citizenship, Merit Immigration & Illegal Aliens / Low Cost Labor

The Opening session of Congress must introduce an Enforcement First Bill* requiring the immediate enforcement of all our Immigration Laws and Securing all Our Borders. Walls or Double Fences where necessary due to terrain, the Military will guard our Land Borders as we the US Air Force & Navy guard our air space and coastlines from invasion and according to Pres. Eisenhower Illegal Aliens are an Invasion, the Border Patrol will monitor the Points of Entry into the United States thereby truly protecting America from the Illegal Alien Invaders,  (Read Article). Technology such as Nevada’s Area 51 not breached in over 50 years, Drones, Earth Quake Tech for Movement under the ground, co managed by the Military with State Law Enforcement or National Guard Officers, (The US Constitution prohibiting posting US Troop on the Border is a Myth). The US Constitution states the Opposite, Article 1V Section 4. The United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union a Republican form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence. States must protect themselves if Federal Government won’t Read: Article 1 Section 10 Clause 3, clearly states what a Governor can do, however none have the Courage to as most are climbing the Political Ladder in their perspective Party and don’t want to upset the apple cart of Politics as usual.

States will also have the authority to take over the system if Federal Government for whatever reason decides to end or suspend program. State & Local law enforcement agencies will arrest within their jurisdictions and then turn over illegals for deportation. All costs incurred by the state and local authorities will be reimbursed by the Federal Government to assure cooperation, No Federal Aide will be given to any Sanctuary Localities. We'll make our Security part of any Worker or Visitor Visa program with all Nations, or No Visa's to their citizens. No Visas will be issued to Citizens of Countries that sponsor terrorism or espouse the overthrow of our form of government.This is one of those laws covering Sharia Law 18 §U.S. Codes § 2385 - Anyone Advocating the overthrow of the American Government. Read Link: : View Relevant 2012 Campaign Video

There must be clarification of Natural Born and Birth Right Citizenship: Watch Video, the original intent is shown in the 14  Amendment to the US Constitution, the Constitution isn't an international document meant to apply to non citizens but to citizens only or at the very least those within our borders legally. After all while many erroneously claim that the Fourteenth Amendment guarantees citizenship to anyone born on American soil, the Reality is that is not the law and never has been Law. Current immigration law- found at 8 U.S.C. s1401 (a)-specifies that a baby born on American soil  to (1) a foreign ambassador, (2) head of state, or (3) foreign military prisoner is not an American Citizen. For me all three of these 3 categories indicate they're in the country legally and still not allowed to be citizens by birth. Why would any Sovereign Nation allow those in the Country Illegally to have the children born to them made citizens upon birth? All Provisions of the US Constitution have a fixed meaning. Only " We the People" can adopt a constitutional provision- all 27 amendments in the Constitution were proposed by two thirds of the house & senate, ratified by three fourths of the  states, this being the only legal way to interpret the US Constitution in accordance with its' original meaning of those terms. A real part of this discussion that is always overlooked is Article 1 Section 8 Clause 3, which lays out the authority clearly and not one of the 3 Branches of Government has the Constitutional Authority to change that simply by decree or ruling, there is a process that must be followed, if we are to believe we're truly a Nation of Laws. The United  States must not continue to allow any Citizens from Countries known to support or promote terrorists into our Nation this is for Our National Security, even though unpopular position by the Politically Correct in DC.

No to Gang of Eight McCain / Flake plan Amnesty or Legal Status* must ever be given to any who illegally entered or overstayed a Visa, especially Citizenship.

New Merit System Standards Merit Worker 60 days to 1 year and Visitor Visa 90 days, system will be implemented by having all Immigration & Naturalization Uniform equaling One Standard for all no exceptions as is called for in the US Constitution: All who apply will be qualified by Age, Health, Education, Fluent in English, Financial Stability trained for the specific job applicant is applying for or no Visa will be issued, No Exceptions, No Family / Chain Migration Visas etc. All applying for any Visas will be completely Vetted before entering the United States No Exceptions, America's National Security First. All applying for Visas will be required to post a Bond which guarantees their leaving the US as specified in issued Visa or forfeit bond and will be deported losing Visa privileges permanently. We recently lost track of over 525,000 Visitors, who failed to report to leave and no one in ICE knows where they are and 25% of them are from a Middle East Country. 

President Trump a Real Solution for all Illegals moving forward is* First cut All Benefits to any Illegal Alien within our Borders other than a Life Threatening Illness or Accident. Set up a system of Deportation for any in the Country Illegally whether entered Illegally or overstayed a Visa (both Criminal Acts) and you've stated very clearly you're going to Deport Criminals, if they Self Deport may request a Visa from their home country or if Forced Deportation never allowed to return. Employers will be mandated to use E Verify or be fined $10,000 per offense, monies will be put in the Social Security Trust Fund. *E Verify will check those presently employed or seeking employment before employing.

All Job Opportunities given to American workers first, after 60 days the job opportunities will be open to those with Valid Worker Visas who meet the New Merit System Standards, as replacements are found the Illegals presently employed will be dismissed and await deportation this method will end the complaint of disrupting businesses, if they self deport they may request a New Visa to return, if we deport them no return allowed. No Exceptions, No Visas for Family / Chain Migration etc. if not able to attain position due to place in line or qualifications or Unemployment in that field is 4% or more then must return to their home country within 30 days. 

Cheap labor is hurting the less trained in our Nation who are living at or below the Poverty level dependent on welfare, this would give them who the opportunity to move into an entry level job. The unemployment numbers in the Youth in Black & Hispanic Communities averages 35%, their opportunity for the entry level jobs are presently going to H-2B Visa & Illegal Aliens (Difficult to start a Career as an American when outsiders Steal them from you). America is called a Melting Pot, however many who enter or stay Illegally believe special rules apply to them, they've chosen the illegal way of benefiting from the American Dream not as the legal immigrants, we must protect Our Heritage for Future Generations of Americans. Currently the U.S. issues over 1 million new green cards every year, resulting in approximately 42 million immigrants. This is a Must Read Article on the Immigration Act of 1965 was passed to bring about a Dramatic Shift in the American Culture so: Click to Read, Roughly 13% of our population is now foreign-born, up from 4.7% in 1970. States such as New York, California, New Jersey, and Florida are comprised of 20% or more foreign-born, with California checking in at 27%, by the way this is where they're Marching Demanding Pardons. These numbers are from 2012. Even without a mass immigration bill, the foreign-born population is expected to rise to 60 million within ten years, according to a congressional report. Reform the Naturalization process to a 5 year time frame for those who want to become citizens, and allow only their immediate family members (wife, husband and children only) to Immigrate if in compliance with the New Merit Standards.

2nd Choice, Pardon as they're Demanding in Our Streets or Amnesty like President Reagan and we all now know how that's worked for US Citizens, your choice will be made by those you support or make excuses for not doing what's right, if they believe we're to weak to take a Stand don't expect any of them to.

The US Constitution clearly requires the Federal Government to Protect the States from Invasion, with at least 1 million Illegal Aliens coming across our southern border into the States each year it's clearly and invasion. In the 50's President Eisenhower called it an Invasion by unknown Illegals, (he also Protected and Defended America as Our European Commander during WW II), (deporting plan in June of 1954), Read It:, take a lesson from Real Commanders in Chief who saw the danger of an invasion by Non Citizens into the US stopping, repelling and deporting millions of illegals as did Truman & Hoover. This took Courage and Leadership, for most today this doesn't exist, due to Political Correctness, what I call Political Cowardice. Keep in mind being in the country illegally is only one of many crimes committed, add in Identity theft, tax evasion, welfare cheats, depressing wages, adding to overcrowding schools & emergency rooms etc., we're dealing with people from around the World who entered illegally or overstayed visas knowingly ( Making them Criminals ), who hope we don't enforce our Laws. They are demanding a Pardon, if done then the next Group will want special treatment as well, it's Immoral not to Enforce Our Laws due to America's Immoral Leadership.

President Trump; The Immigration and Nationality Act also known as the Check the McCarran / Walters Act (Both Parties voted for it and also over rode a veto by President Truman) passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality for the United States, which will also be one of the laws that must be enforced. This act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the Immigration of Aliens  to the US and remains in effect today. Among the many issues it covers, one in particular, found in Chapter 2 Section  212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization intent on overthrowing the Government of the United States by "Force, Violence, or other unconstitutional means." This law by its' very definition, rules out the Islamic Immigration into the United States, this law isn't being Enforced by the White House or Congress. Islamic Immigration to the US should be prohibited under this Law as the Qur'an, Sharia Law and the Hadith require complete submission to Islam, which is antithetical to the US Government, US Constitution and the the Republic itself. All Muslims who attest that the Qur'an is their life guiding principal and thereby submit to Islam and it's type of  government are thereby not eligible to Immigrate into the US. Politically Correct Followers say the Muslims can't be kept from entering the US as Islam is a Religion, when in fact its' an Ideology. Religion or not isn't relevant as the the Law clearly states Aliens associated / affiliated with an "organization" which advocates the overthrow of the US Government are Prohibited from Immigrating into the US.  Read section 212, Read Link We must enforce our Laws and not allow the Politically Correct Crowd to Destroy US from within.

Temporary Freeze on Worker Visas, H-1B Visas presently replaces 65,000 American workers annually, H-1B Congress was planning to increase by 10 = 650,000 yearly allowing outside contractors at lower wages, they use this and H-2B programs to obtain cheaper labor. The freeze on H-1B and H-2B Visas along with the OPT program will only be lifted when Unemployment in a specific field is under a Provable 4%. Temporary Freeze on, "All Optional Practical Training" (OPT) program. This jobs program for foreign students only. Under the current OPT program, about 130,000 foreign students are given temporary work permits for one or two years. The program is already a scam, since no "training" is given to anyone. These are simply more foreign workers to replace American Students, the new rule adds more than 500,000 additional foreign students who'd qualify totaling 700,000 resulting in more difficulty for our children to gain employment. We also have Two GOP Reps. Chabot of Ohio and Tillis of NC introduced bill that will increase the number of work permits in the H-2B Visa program to foreign workers for non Ag. jobs. These seasonal jobs for the H-2B program used by companies such as Brickman Group Landscaping, Vail Resorts (Skiing, Marriott, Landscapes Unlimited (Golf Courses), and others in the hospitality & entertainment business. These jobs were usually held by High School & College Teens for summer vacation or Americans with High School Diplomas or less. These two groups the highest unemployment rates, seems these companies would rather hire Foreigners at usually lower wages, with some in GOP helping them carry this out, so we have them exporting jobs with bad Trade Deals and Importing Jobs to satisfy American Companies Greed and our Kids pay the bill. Check this information on just how many jobs go to Illegals compared to US Citizens: Read Link

In Closing I believe Election Cycles are Critical for Our Nation & States as to whether we sink deeper into a Socialistic Nation or Restore Ourselves to a True Republic form of Government. The choice is clear, never support those voting against or compromising the US Constitution and Our Freedoms, I actually believe this is what most of us are hoping for and the Elite Power Brokers are afraid of: (Time to Drain All Political Swamps) . . .
