The above subject title is still a collective figment of our imagination in America. It is something I'm coining for the very 1st time in how to address the "Illegal Immigrant" issue in our grand U.S.A. What I'm about to propose may make too much common sense that many lobbying groups will squirm in "Fits and Angst". I'm proposing a system that directs the Federal and State governments to process on a macro scale the 20 plus million Illegal Aliens in our country.
What follows below is a 3 step process in order of succession:
First, all Illegal Aliens or unauthorized Immigrants in our country must step forward voluntarily. (there's a later segment of those forced into this ACRPA program) Those that come forward freely will be noted with less demands than those forced into the program by ICE (Immigration Customs Enforcement) or other Federal Law Enforcement agencies. Any Illegal Alien felons or those having committed a string of misdemeanor offenses in a short period of time. (time frame to be devised) Are forbidden from ever participating within this ACRPA program and are subject to procedural deportation abroad. As is already under the law after being convicted of their crimes and serving their time in U.S. prisons. Of those otherwise law abiding Illegal Immigrants that the only crime is illegal entry into our country they are eligible for this "American Civil Reconciliation and Patriotism Act" Federally mandated program.
Section A, of this first stage is all Illegal Immigrants enrolled in this ACRPA program. Be they voluntarily or forced into the program by Federal law enforcement agencies. Must pay monthly or annual member dues for the upkeep and funding of their personal accounts within this system. Membership for Illegal Aliens within this ACRPA program will span at least 50% of the generating revenue in order to operate this Federal Immigration program. The other 10-20% of this revenue will come from mid, large, or global companies / corporations as employers of said Illegal Immigrants. (small businesses are exempt due to the hardships that would otherwise be imposed on them) The remainder of the funding would come from the Federal and State partners in order to operate this ACRPA program. To the vicinity of government paying up to 30-40% depending on what offending employers provide in funding revenue through their penalty monetary charges.
Section B, of this first stage is those Illegal Aliens having committed "Identity Theft Fraud" in order to have gained employment in the United States. Must declare such a crime voluntarily in order to make restitution to the identity theft victim(s). This will be an under pinning in order for those Illegal Immigrants to proceed under such an ACRPA program. A financial audit will be conducted from the beginning of the ID theft by the Illegal Alien. In order to gauge how much in Federal and State taxes have been paid by the Illegal Alien under such a false identity. Including how much in fraudulent charges of incurred debt to the Identity theft victim(s). Whichever number is greater in either taxes paid or fraudulent debts incurred will be the amount of the financial restitution to the Identity Theft victim(s). Since the ID theft victim(s) will most likely have personal protection identity theft insurance provided by any number of outlets already. This is to teach a lesson that ID theft as a crime does not pay in the end there is a consequence for such an action.
However if the Illegal Alien having stolen someone's identity but has been responsible in financial upkeep of such a stolen identity. After such a required financial audit can be declared as to causing only minimal harm. Hence forth to be waived from making financial restitution payments to the ID theft victim(s).
Second, either by negligence or outright disregard for authorized employment within the United States any American or Foreign National corporate entity, allowed to offer employment within America. That knowingly or unknowingly harbors Illegal Aliens or Illegal Immigrants within their own workforce will be liable and be charged with both monetary fines and penalties if their conduct is egregious. In so far to allow ICE (Immigration Customs Enforcement) or other Federal law enforcement agencies to conduct random on the spot facility inspections. Be they of the workforce or request of records in so far as to the corporations allowing a quarterly audit of their records. (be it financial or of their workforce)
This is where American Lobbying groups will squirm with "Fits and Angst" as I stated in the introduction. Besides being charged with monetary fines and penalties of up to 10-20% in funding such a ACRPA Federal Immigration program. (at least for the offending Mid to Globally sized corporations) They will be subject to random local inspections if not Raids by Federal Law Enforcement agencies. (State and Local Law Enforcement can not interfere or demand an Illegal Alien their Immigration Status, unless having committed a felony.) Where also their will be quarterly audits of their records be they of their personnel or financial from the offending regions. Where the crime of employing Illegal Aliens was first discovered. Any American or Foreign corporate firm stating innocence when caught "Red Handed" with an Illegal Immigrant workforce will do so through their own negligence or wanton criminal conduct.
Illegal Aliens that are caught during an inspection or raid of an employer premises by ICE or other Federal law enforcement agencies. That are not wanted for prior criminal warrants will be forced into the ACRPA program or face direct deportation if they refuse repeatedly. Once under Federal custody all Illegal Aliens will receive a primer educative session on what the ACRPA entails on a whole basis. If the Illegal Immigrant still refuses enrollment into such a Federal Immigration program. They have opened themselves for a means to deportation, not unlike those who are otherwise felons for their serious crimes.
Those Illegal Immigrants that are seized in a inspection or raid by ICE or other Federal Law Enforcement agencies. That are voluntarily involved and enrolled within the scope of the ACRPA Federal Immigration program. Are flagged as compliant and free to go without harm or any sort of discrimination.
Third, the entire reason for being for this ACRPA program is to provide Illegal Immigrants a legal bonifide U.S. Green Card and work VISA to remain within the U.S.A. After successful completion of this ACRPA program a prior Illegal Alien is now classified as a Legal Immigrant after 3 years time. Having met all the requirements and terms of the "American Civil Reconciliation and Patriotism Act". Where they are than allowed to apply for U.S. Citizenship like any other Legal Immigrant. Basically any Illegal Alien is forced to the back of the line through the ACRPA program. After a successful completion they will have an advantage over those that would otherwise follow the law as a legal Immigrant. But the penalty is the time frame of a three year period of staying complaint within the ACRPA program.
Those Illegal Aliens that have been in America for a decade or less are liable to be enrolled in this ACRPA Federal Immigration program. Be they select themselves voluntarily or are forced into it by Federal Law Enforcement agencies. Those Illegal Immigrants having lived within the United States for longer than a decade can be subject to a shortened version of this ACRPA program.
Now here's the real fruit of this ACRPA program that all Illegal Immigrants in order to stay complaint whilst paying their member dues. Must attend a ESOL (English as a Second Language) educative course work program. That is provided by the local public school district at designated night schools, or at a local community college campus. Those Illegal Aliens that show a prior competency of the English language can be waived from taking the ESOL course work. By taking an oral, reading, and written exam of the English language which is basically the ESOL final exams.
Next, that all members of the ACRPA must take American History and Civics classes similar to what those that are applying for U.S. Citizenship must undergo. Remember I stated at the beginning of this third stage that those under the ACRPA program will have a Head Start. But will go to the back of the line due to the 3 year time frame in fulfilling the requirements and terms of this program.
Lastly, all members of the ACRPA program must subject themselves to 300-500 volunteer hours during the scope of the program. However the member wishes to slice those hours in the capacity of volunteerism from a designated list of either secular or religious charitable organizations. The reason for this volunteerism is to silence the carping from naysayers. That all Illegal Aliens are a drain on our social services to the poor or the needy. Any such perceived drain on American social services will be altered and turned into a benefit for America and the Illegal Aliens as a whole. By fulfilling a requirement of 300-500 volunteer hours to sanctioned secular or religious charitable organizations within America. Those Illegal Aliens that are disabled can receive a shorten amount of volunteer hours, or be completely waived from this requirement.
Another point those Federally endorsed volunteer corps such as "Ameri Corps" for example. Can be among the list of secular charitable or volunteer organizations that the "American Civil Reconciliation and Patriotism Act" can provide to the members of such a program. Since programs like "Ameri Corps" provide assistance for college tuition and if not minimum wage jobs to its volunteers to list only two of the benefits.
The "American Civil Reconciliation and Patriotism Act" will restore civil discourse to both Americans and Immigrants of all sorts be they Legal and Illegal Aliens. If only our Federal Government provides the leadership and the motivation to inspire its citizens to act responsibly and humanely. We can all be proud Americans and filled with a sense of patriotism that is well deserved and fully warranted under God. Amen.
