Let's just round up anyone who comes to the border and fly them down to Cape Horn so they can start the trip over

Who will be expected to pay their air fare to Cape Horn?  Not ME, I hope!

Only government money is to be used.

I heard there was lots and lots of Obama money left over, but the greedy pig Trump wants to keep it all for himself and his cronies when he should be distributing it to people that need it! 

That's why Obama created all that money right? To help all the people?

OK, so Obama took quite a bit with him. It was all because he wrote such great books and made such wonderful speeches... Tongue

Yep.  Some claim that this is the very reason Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize . . . . for extraordinary efforts to redistribute wealth to millions of Americans, fairly and equally!

And, of course, his gift to the World: The Affordable Care Act.   "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor!"

Such a liar.   Smiley    Grin     Grin

More than 300,000 would-be immigrants from India and more than 67,000 Chinese are currently on the waiting list for green cards, according to a 2018 CIS report.


If these would-be immigrants purchased Guest Visas, it would net the US $183.5 Billion in revenues!   Shocked  WOW

And if we used the plan from Cato that I linked to, it would bring in even more money and we'd get the best possible immigrants from everywhere.


But you have to start somewhere...

Eh, the CATO plan sucks - the tariff schedule is overly complicated and much too expensive, and therefore exclusionary, for most immigrants and asylum-seekers.

My Guest Visa plan towers over the CATO plan (in practicality).

That's part of the idea, to make people who won't contribute as much after they are here pay more up front.

Illegal immigrants now pay large amounts of money to smugglers to smuggle them in to the U.S., up to $75,000 for a Chinese who wants to sneak in, and they usually borrow the money. They are willing to pay that much even with the risk that they will be caught and deported and never get to earn enough money to pay back the loans.

The IDEA is to have comprehensive immigration reform. The IDEA is to make it easier (and shorten the wait) for asylum-seekers to flee their shit-hole countries.  The IDEA is to facilitate the citizenship process.

My Guest Visa plan does this - and at zero cost to the taxpayer.

The CATO "Gold Card" tariff schedule is a convoluted mess.  It would require forming another bloated gov't administration.
