there has been a lot of weeping and gnashing of teeth lately, from all camps, on immigration policy. from some quarters, even the slightest approval of aliens is a clear sign of racial treason and insecurity. from others, anything less than total open borders is a serious offence.
i’ll here outline a simple and mostly effective immigration policy that, as usual with simple and mostly effective policies, will be totally ignored:
- home buyers become citizens, since the nation belongs to proprietors.
- tenants, employees and invitees remain under supervision of their sponsors (landlords, employers or hosts), until they can afford the equivalency price of houses (and thus citizenship).
- tourists can come and go (nobody lives forever in a hotel), and eventually they will be pressed in section 1 or 2.
couple this with “only citizens vote”, and 90% of the problems go away immediately.
