Transcript of Immigration

hunt down illegals and force them to become citizens through naturalization process or get deported
have federal agents or border control agents sweep through borders and states with known illegals present
send a rumor through the nation using the media
Yvonne's Solution
Make it harder for immigrants to live here without legal documents
Create a document, a card, that immigrants have to present to get a job or a drivers license
Programs have been created in the past but they were not good enough to stop people from entering the US border illegally
Christian's Solution
California lawmakers passed a bill last summer to permit legal immigrants (who aren't U.S. citizens) to serve on juries
California became the 11th state (and the eighth of 2013) to allow undocumented immigrants to obtain driver's licenses
California’s 3.5 million legal permanent residents can now serve as poll workers
however they, as non citizens, cannot vote
More than 11 million illegal immigrants live in the United States, and 1,400 more arrive every day
Illegal immigrants do tough, low-wage jobs that Americans and legal immigrants won’t sign up for
Facts and Statistics

The Best Proposed Bill
Summary
Immigration Reform Ad by Congress
strength:
most efficient and simple way to sift through our streets

weaknesses:
no way to track the illegals

would take countless agents

expensive
The government should secure the borders and establish more security
For those who came to the US before 2000, they would be given a visa like pass which would allow them to apply for future citizenship
they can stay here as long as they follow the laws
Allow them to work and require them to pay taxes
For those who came to the U.S after 2000, they should return to their home country
The government must increase and enforce penalties for employers who hire illegal immigrants
sponsor: Joe Garcia (R)
comprehensive immigration reform
Increases the number of U.S. Customs and Border Protection
change naturalization process to make becoming a citizen easier
recruiting illegal workers
protect children affected by immigration laws
sponsor: Peter DeFazio (R)
amend Immigration and Neutrality Act
establish an employment eligibility verification system
can identify eligibility within 3 days of inquiry
second verification test done within 10 days
Founded in February 1968 by Dr. Julian Samora and Dr. Ernesto Galarza

Background: NCLR traces its origins to the civil rights movement of the 1960s, and to previous efforts that preceded World War II
Hispanics wanted to have a voice in the US
Mission: to improve opportunities for Hispanic Americans
Actions/Events: Home for Good Campaign, A Thin Line Project, Characters Unite Award

Community Action Kit
Newspaper Ad Campaign
wrote to President Obama
advocated for bills HR 502 and HR 490
we need to crack down on illegal immigration epidemic
hunt down illegal aliens and force them to go through naturalization process or get deported
wrote to President Obama
The illegals here prior to 2000 need incentives to become documented
encourage them to enroll by offering free healthcare for up to 2 years in exchange for being processed for a green card
Children who are born on the U.S soil will not become citizens if their parents are illegal here
Today, we have many illegal immigrants living here in America. This number of immigrants keeps increasing every day which is costing US citizens billions of dollars.

The illegals get free school, don't pay taxes, and most of them get free health care insurance; it is completely wrong for monies to go to illegal immigrants
So what needs to be done?
enforce work permit and work visa laws
increase consequences for those who break the law
put more money and resources into border security
increase staffing in heavily populated areas
Strengths:
reduce the number of immigrants
prevents citizens rights from being abused
Weaknesses:
not completely eliminate illegal immigration
people will find other ways to get around it
Video
wrote to Senator Chuck Schumer
chose him because a Senator is close to the people and illegal immigration is a national problem
support the bill HR 502
we need to reduce the number of illegal immigrants that cross the US border
HR 502: Electronic Employment Eligibility Verification and Illegal Immigration Control Act
protects citizens' rights to keep their jobs
set system to check if people are actually eligible to be working in our country
back-up process built into the bill
weakness: puts everyone into a system (kind of like Obamacare)
