END DE FACTO AMNESTY
Right now we have a system of de facto amnesty in this country. Under our current broken immigration system, millions who immigrated here illegally stand in the shadows but still enjoy many of the benefits of living in the United States. This not only presents serious obstacles to law enforcement but it’s unfair to the millions of law-abiding individuals who have come to this country legally. We need to fix our broken system and mandate that those who are living in this country illegally go to the back of the line, learn English, pay a fine and undergo a thorough background check to ensure that they have not broken our laws. By putting in place these rigorous requirements, and also mandating that those here illegally do not have access to welfare and other government benefits, we will end de facto amnesty once and for all and uphold the rule of law.
