If neither dominant party represents you, consider the Libertarian Party.

The Border

"A nation does NOT need immigrants. Immigrants need a nation." – Unknown (paraphrase)

The Southern Border is a highly emotional issue. In this public debate there seems to be no compromise. Legislation is ignored. Executive Orders rule the day. And policies and procedures change when one dominant party gains "control" from the other dominant party.

This is NO way to run a nation. This is NO way to make "policy". We need consensus on processes to govern effectively … and promote public tranquility.

Nations have borders. If there is a crisis at the southern border do we consider a militarized zone at the southern border?

I propose legislation that:

NO Federal Benefits

I will vote against legislation that confirms federal benefits to immigrants. US citizens and residents pursuing their own US Dream cannot be asked to subsidize new arrivals. Additionally, we want workers to provide a benefit to our society.

Sponsors – The 3Cs

Consider the following sponsors for immigrants:

These 3 Cs have a vested interest in the immigrant becoming a productive and peaceful member of society. IMO this is a reasonable vouchsafe of the immigrant. The expectation is that the sponsor will fully support the immigrant until the immigrant becomes a productive citizen.

The Sovereign States

Each immigrant will reside within a city of a state. As such, each sovereign state must be able to set policy on the following:

From the House

Jus Sanguinis

Currently, US Immigration Law incorporates two theories:
  1. jus sanguinis … by blood
  2. jus soli … by soil

I favor solely applying jus sanguinis. This would define citizenship as obtained thru parents. We also continue to encourage naturalization thru sponsorship.

Two examples:

A mother, a citizen of another nation, who has traveled to the US to give birth should NOT confer US citizenship to the newborn. The child is a citizen of the mother's nation.

An undocumented mother, a resident but NOT a US citizen, similarly cannot confer US citizenship to her child.


The status of Resident Adult Aliens (RAA) must be determined by legislation. We cannot continue to swing between Executive Orders that change when the other dominant pary comes "to power". The millions of RAA deserve to know their status in terms of citizenship.

I propose new legislation that declares all RAA to be residents, they can:

This will encourage immigrants to be productive, peaceful citizens. We want immigrants to contribute to our society, as opposed to being a burden.

DACA & Do NOT Separate

As the family is the bedrock foundation of society, it is important to keep families intact. Separating a child from a loving family is criminal … unpardonable.

Why did President Obama encourage (by Executive Order) children to travel alone?  This subjects children to unnecessary danger and possible trafficking. Shame on President Obama!  Why would parents send their children, unaccompanied, on such a dangerous journey?

Before signing Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) … NO one saw the sinister dark side to the Executive Order. Really?

Besides, how can a child apply for DACA?

DACA is obviously flawed thinking and obvious Executive overreach. SCOTUS should have struck down this Executive Order. A legislative DACA would also be immoral.

Federal Negligence / State Action

Federal focus (Jan '24) on the southern border has been a large pendulum swing away from Dec 2020. The current non–policy has ceated a crisis … both Rs and now Ds agree. Nations have borders.

In the wake of this ill–thought non–policy, Texas has acted, as prescribed by Amendment X. Governor Greg Abbott has:

If Texans object to these measures, they should contact their State Representative. The voice of We The People will be heard and followed.
