The System is broken

I want to point out that our system of immigration is broken. It is broken by the endless cycles of appeals. Having cases go on for decades of appeals makes no sense. These appeals can literally go
on for decades and the only people who benefit from that are lawyers.

I respect due process. There are plenty of people with shady intentions and crooked people taking advantage of desperate people.

You want to be transparent and fair. Person X comes from country Y where documentation is lax.Is it fair to subject everyone from country Y to DNA testing? Or should it just be done for everyone in an age where fraudulent documents are high quality. Would requiring US Citizens
provide fingerprints and DNA samples that would be in law enforcement data bases deter some from fake marriages. It it an unlawful invasion of privacy.

These are questions to ponder as the debate on immigration moves forward.

You are just realizing the immigration system has malfunctioned.

I'm glad I don't use you as a news source, Beak.

I don't like the idea of big brother
fingerprinting and taking DNA samples from Americans, considering the direction the country is being taken.

The immigration system is just a symptom of what is wrong in this country. Our kids are too lazy to
do what our grandparents and parents did: pick fruit and vegetables during the summer. Their parents give them what the want, instead of them earning what they need.
