    Step 1. DACA must go. The president’s 2012 policy for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, regardless of the Oval Office’s intent, sets a precedent that encourages further unlawful migration, particularly among minors. It leaves those in the program mired in uncertainty as to their future status. It resolves nothing, encourages the problem to grow and is a detriment to establishing fair, consistent and sustainable immigration policy. Dumping DACA, on the other hand, would send a strong and unequivocal signal there is no advantage in rushing to the U.S. to shortcut the line and receive legal authorization to remain here.

    I can some that entire article up in one step.

    1) Send them all back.

    There really wasn't a whole lot of substance in there that's going to fix anything

    Secure the border without spending more money? That doesn't add up. We already spend billions and employ 18,000 ICE agents on our southern border. How, pray tell, are we supposed to do more without hiring more, which means spending more money?

    Ending birthright citizenship and implementing e-verify will do more than putting more guards on the border, and at a lower cost.

    The first step is to...

    get a whole new group of people in congress. Keep throwing them out until they realize that they can't keep their jobs unless they stop the silly rhetoric and decide to get something done.

    BTW, I don't see any real concern by the general population. Maybe when they are queued up at the clinics and there are a bunch of Hispanics in front then maybe yes, but not right now.

    The government needs to purchase right of way (some landowners would possibly donate land) along the border in the unihabited sections and create a military base and build multiple desert training facilities. Create a new training area and move the army in, a bombing range here or there, etc. Problem solved.

    Harry Reid says border is secure.

    Birthright citizenship is idiotic.
    That's free to un-implement.

    Kind of.

    14th amendment has a clause:
    All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.

    It is currently interpreted to mean anyone who is not born to a diplomat or servicemember or the like from another country. Changing the interpretation to mean anyone who is not born to a US citizen would fix a bunch of problems.

    Evidence that this needs to be changed:
    Lured by U.S. citizenship for their children, thousands of Chinese women give birth annually in the States, supporting a thriving birth-tourism industry
