Take steps to end illegal entry

Has anyone wondered why the non-politicians are ahead in the polls? They say what the American people are thinking and politicians ignore. Let’s look at immigration:

We must:

Secure our borders; it’s not the wealthy, educated people from other countries coming illegally.

Mandate E-Verify immediately.

Implement an interior system of enforcement.

Implement an entry/exit system to track those that overstay visas.

Immediately end birthright citizenship.

End immigration chain.

Absolutely NO sanctuary cities.

This is an economic issue (health care, food, housing, etc.) that taxpayers are covering for illegals. We must enforce laws on the books and quit saying it is “Anti-immigration.”

Come through legal channels. How are officials going to be able to screen the 85,000 Syrians that are coming to U.S.?
