Trump makes-a-deal on immigration. @LizPeek @Foxnews

  1. Allow the 800,000 Dreamers included in the DACA program to become resident legal aliens. Agree that they will never become citizens; that is the penalty for their illegal entry. But, they would be allowed to stay and work in the country without fear of deportation and they would enjoy all the perks of citizenship (including entitlements programs like Medicare) except voting privileges. Agree that children born to Dreamers would become citizens.
  2. At the same time, mandate the use of biometric screening for first-time visa applicants and make E-Verify mandatory nationwide. The former would help reduce the number of “overstays” illegally in the country while the latter would make it tougher for undocumented persons to work in the U.S. E-Verify is a free, government-provided program that enables employers to check the legal status of job applicants. Denying people here illegally an opportunity to earn a living would be the single biggest deterrent possible to future illegal immigration.
  3. Get rid of birthright citizenship. The United States is one of only two developed countries in the world that still bestows citizenship on every person born on our nation’s soil. Having a child become a U.S. citizen is the greatest reward possible for someone who enters the country illegally. Such status is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in free education and benefits, not to mention the incalculable value of our country’s security and freedoms. Historically, there was bipartisan enthusiasm for dumping this program; even Democrat Harry Reid had proposed its termination.
  4. Abandon the wall. These proposals would enrage hardliners on both sides of the immigration debate. That’s the nature of a deal. President Trump would have to make an Oval Office pitch to sell the country on this overhaul; here are some talking points that might help.
