Lets promote legal immigration. How?
1. Speed up the process to get green card status, for legal skilled immigrants, so their spouses can work, invest in homes and pay even more taxes to the government!
2. Encourage legal immigration. Don't encourage people to opt for illegal immigration by fixing problems with illegal immigration first (such as granting amnesty!) when so many problems remain in the legal process - particularly a lengthy bureaucratic green card process. If I can get amnesty in less time by sneaking into the country, why would I bother to apply for a visa and a green card that takes forever!
