A Comprehensive Immigration Law/Bill is needed in the USA:

Post by Derryck »

August 11-2005:



TOPIC: A Comprehensive Immigration Law/Bill is needed in the USA:

SOLUTIONS:

What this country need, is A Comprehensive Immigration Bill that guarantees the following:

1. Acceptance of any foreigner, who is not a security/national threat to the country, and has satisfied the Legal Immigration entry requirements.

2. Grant residence status to those who have satisfied the above requirements: Displayed respect for our national constitution & local laws: And have not committed any felonious act/s while in residence here.

3. Grant Legal Residence Status to those who have overstayed their visas, and are unable to return to their homeland, for fear of reprisals, retribution, and/or financial inability to re-enter the USA.

4. Seeking asylum for political, religious, or racial/ethnic reasons, should be considered eligible for legal residence status.

5. Any person/s who have tested HIV positive while living in the USA: Have entered the country legally: Have been residing here for over one year prior to being tested HIV positive, should be granted legal residence status, on humanitarian grounds.

6. Ensuring that our national borders are adequately policed: Persons entering or leaving our sovereign territories, must provide the necessary legal papers or identity.

7. All immigrants, legal or illegal must be allowed to access medical/emergency assistance from any hospital or clinic in The USA, without being asked for his/her legal residence status documents.

Done

I take it you refer to individuals like Maureen in the other thread started today. Obviously there are flaws in the current statutes that need adjustment.



3. Grant Legal Residence Status to those who have overstayed their visas, and are unable to return to their homeland, for fear of reprisals, retribution, and/or financial inability to re-enter the USA.



4. Seeking asylum for political, religious, or racial/ethnic reasons, should be considered eligible for legal residence status.


Simple fear is not enough. We'd need some kind of justification for both of these, and there are rules on the books already.

5. Any person/s who have tested HIV positive while living in the USA: Have entered the country legally: Have been residing here for over one year prior to being tested HIV positive, should be granted legal residence status, on humanitarian grounds.

I don't get this one at all. Any person, here legally or illegally? No matter how/when the HIV was contracted (or whatever the verb should be)? and why only HIV?

6. Ensuring that our national borders are adequately policed: Persons entering or leaving our sovereign territories, must provide the necessary legal papers or identity.

I disagree with the leaving part. You want to go? Go. I believe passenger manifests for international flights are already checked for criminals trying to leave the country, but I could certainly be wrong.



7. All immigrants, legal or illegal must be allowed to access medical/emergency assistance from any hospital or clinic in The USA, without being asked for his/her legal residence status documents.


Done
