Illegal Immigration

1. Illegal Immigration Enforcement

Absolute Prevention

No illegal migration should be allowed. The borders should be solidly blockaded with whatever means necessary, including military.


2. Illegal Immigration Fines

Illegal Entry Fine

A stiff penalty of $5,000 should be imposed per person per illegal immigration violation. People, such as ‘snakeheads’ and ‘coyotes’, who help illegal immigrants during any part of their journey should be assessed a $10,000 fine for each person they have aided.

Illegal Daily Fine

In addition, each migrant should be required to pay a fine of $10 per day spent illegally in the country.

Processing, Detention, & Deportation Charges

In addition to these fines, illegal immigrants must also pay all other charges associated with this illegal immigration violation. These would include processing and detention charges as well as the cost of transportation back to their original place of origin.


3. Illegal Immigrant Deportation Procedures

Planning For Deportation

Plans should be laid for the deportation of illegal immigrants as soon as their presence is discovered by authorities. Illegal immigrants discovered within one week (seven days) of immigrating should be deported immediately (within 72 hours). However, the deportation process should be reasonable to all involved. Immigrants having been in the country illegally for more than one week should be given the time to disengage, in an orderly manner, from any engagements and obligations they have prior to deportation as well as to plan for their return to their original area of origin. The maximum amount of time allowed between discovery and deportation should be three full months.

In order to pay their fines, the U.S. government should have agreements with the migrants’ home country giving it the right to seize assets there for purposes of settling fines due to legal offenses.  If, for whatever reason, such assets are not enough, do not exist or cannot be found, then the illegal immigrant could be detained further in order to perform labor within this country to earn money to pay off the fines. A repayment schedule would need to be worked out with the government.  Friends and families of these immigrants could be encouraged to donate towards paying off this debt.

Supervision During Interim

Upon their discovery and initial processing, every illegal immigrant must be notified of their deportation deadline. Then, unless there is reason to do otherwise, and upon their promises to abide by the deportation deadline, they should be freely released back into society. If there is any reason to suspect that a particular individual will either not abide by the set deadline or pose a risk to people or property, then any range of supervision options could be imposed. These could range from simple requirements to call an immigration office via telephone every day to report their status, to 24-hour incarceration. This level of ‘trust’ to determine the degree of supervision required could be determined by the courts.


Illegal immigrants should be repatriated back to their original area (town or province) of origin and they should pay all costs involved. Unless there is a compelling reason to do so and only if permission has been granted by the receiving jurisdiction, illegal immigrants should not have the option of being deported to any location other than their original place of origin, especially to one barely on the other side of the border, unless that is, in fact, their original place of origin.

Consequences For Missing Deadline

The consequences of missing the deportation deadline would be an additional fine of $1,000, a 1% compounding daily interest charge on their cumulative illegal immigration fines (regardless of whether any or all of it had already been paid), plus any additional costs for their newly required search and arrest. In addition, all assets belonging to the respective illegal immigrant would be frozen and used to either pay off the fines and/or used as collateral until the immigrant turns himself in.

Illegal Immigrants Who Are Victims of Crimes

Illegal immigrants who are also crime victims should be guaranteed to have their cases heard and resolved in this country. If it is conclusively proven that the charges brought by an illegal immigrant is utterly false, then the daily illegal immigration penalty would be retroactively reinstated back to its date of suspension (when the original charges were filed). At the end of the trial or case, then they could be deported.

However, if the illegal immigrant prevails in the case, he/she would be allowed to permanently remain in the country legally upon payment of all outstanding fines. They would likely be better able to pay all outstanding fines due to the financial benefits resulting from their legal win.


4. Payment of Fines

Complete Payments Prior To Deportation

Illegal immigrants would be free to pay all the costs associated with their illegal immigration (i.e., criminal penalties, processing, detention, deportation, etc.) at any time and in any way they see fit prior to or up until the day of their scheduled repatriation. All charges must be paid prior to being deported. However, if an illegal immigrant fails to leave the country by the required date or if he/she has not completed payment without agreeing to a payment plan with the government, then an additional fine of $1,000 would be imposed and compound daily interest of 1% would be charged on the total cumulative fine amount, regardless of what portion had already been paid. In addition, all of their assets would be confiscated by the government and used to pay off any remaining costs or held as collateral until the illegal immigrant turns himself in. After all fines have been paid, any remaining assets would be returned to the possession of the illegal immigrant to take back home.

Unable To Pay?

If the illegal immigrant is unable to pay these fines, the government will provide them with opportunities to work, with earnings at least in accordance with minimum wage laws, until all of their bills (with interest) have been paid. Illegal immigrants will try to be matched with their talents in order to make the best use of their labor and allow them to earn more money. Interest on their fine account balances will be charged (beginning on the day after their original deportation would have occurred) normal market rates until their entire debt is paid. Then repatriation would occur. There would be no time limit requirements within which such repayments must occur. The government and the illegal immigrant must agree to a payment plan. The illegal immigrant would be responsible for insuring that payments are made according to the plan or further penalties would accrue.


5. Illegal Immigrant Reentry

No illegal immigrant should ever be imposed arbitrary minimum time limits before they are allowed a legal reentry into the country. Illegal immigrants should be allowed to reenter the country the same day if they can do so legally. But they must be physically deported all the way back to their original departure point before they are legally allowed to return.

Or, illegal immigrants who are otherwise eligible for legal reentry, could be allowed to remain in the country, without returning home, upon payment of a penalty equivalent to 125% of what it would have cost to go back to their original place of origin and return.


6. Illegal Immigrants Marrying or Birthing Children

Marriage to a US citizen or birthing US citizen children should not automatically reclassify an illegal immigrant as having a legal status or make it any easier for them to obtain legal US residency or citizenship. Rather, these illegal immigrants would have the same fines imposed as conventional illegal immigrants.

Illegal Immigrant Marriage

One difference would be that an illegal immigrant married to a US citizen would have 6 months from the date of discovery (instead of the normal 3 months) to leave the country. If an illegal immigrant is part of a couple that is known to be pregnant on the date of discovery or who already have borne children together, then that illegal immigrant would be allowed 12 months from the date of discovery to leave the country.

Illegal Immigrant Children

Children born in the US to at least one illegal immigrant parent should not be given US citizenship and the parents should pay the illegal immigrant fine for the child at the normal rate of $10 per day, beginning on the day of the child’s birth up until the date of discovery.

However, until the US Constitution is changed, the child will be granted US citizenship. In this case, the illegal immigrant parent of this child should be levied a fine for the baby at a rate of $5 per day (half the rate of a regular illegal immigrant) from birth until the date of discovery. If both parents are illegal immigrants, then the child born in the US would cause a fine of $10 per day to be levied against the parents.


7. Illegal Immigrant Employer Penalties

Employers must verify the legal residency status of all their workers. A $25,000 fine should be levied against any business or individual for each illegal immigrant worker it has hired for any length of time. In addition, the hiring entity should be fined $250 for each day that the illegal immigrant worker was employed.


8. Proof of Legal Residency Required for Many Things

Proof of legal residency would be required for the purchase or use of many major products or services. Some examples are listed below:

  1. Purchasing or renting real estate
  2. Buying or operating vehicles
  3. Owning bank accounts
  4. Obtaining marriage licences
  5. Obtaining government benefits (welfare, food stamps, Medicaid, education, etc.)

Illegal immigrants would be ineligible to use social services, except emergency services (police, fire, medical, etc.). However, they would be required to repay all costs for any emergency services used.
