**Peoples have migrated all over the world since recorded history. They've also 

immigrated from their own country to other countries because of poverty, war 

and other reasons. 

Where everyone in the world is migrating—in one gorgeous chart."


These flows represent 75% of all human movement from 2005-2010.

"In a 2018 budget proposal was delivered to Congress today, requesting $44.1 

billion in discretionary budget authority for the Department of Homeland Security 

(DHS), a $2.8 billion, or 6.7 percent, increase over the FY 2017 annualized

I'm in charge. 

Let's forget the border wall and save $18 billion and use the portion of Homeland

Security needed for internal security only. Let's say that's about $4.1 billion 

realizing another savings of $40 billion for a total savings of $58 billion.

Take these savings and build or use military barracks along all borders of the US 

to house immigrants arriving by ship, boats, barge, etc. These transition camps 

could be set up at major ports along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts and all 

incoming flights from foreign countries using the existing check points with 

added barracks on the north and south borders. An immigrant would be held 

until their background was deemed almost spotless and then would be allowed 

officially to enter the US. Those with bad rap sheets would be jailed with stiff 

sentences to set an example for other criminals that might think of entering the 

the country. No deportation, that would be a "slap on the wrist" and they would 

eventually try to enter the US again.

There are plenty of jobs in the US, "we're hiring" almost everywhere and 

immigrants work at jobs that we citizens don't want to, like foundry work, 

roofing, beef processing, poultry processing and others.



That's if I was in charge, which I'm not.
