Fast Focus: 'What are your ideas for fixing the immigration system?' Follow Mexico's lead

April 21, 2013 

Secure the borders n-o-w with the use of our troops! S-t-o-p allowing anchor babies ASAP.

Require all illegal immigrants to wait a minimum of 10 years before they can apply for citizenship, pay a hefty fine, and go to the back of the line behind those who have already applied for citizenship. Allow only a certain quota of immigrants into the country legally every year.

Stop all of the freebies and enticements to lure illegal immigrants to this country and take care of the citizens first. Fine all employers who don't check with ICE regarding a potential employee as to his immigration status before hiring him. Treat illegal immigrants like we would be treated if caught illegally in Mexico.
