BILL O'REILLY (HOST): President Trump will have his hands full trying to figure out how to get things under control on the immigration front
Here is what Talking Points recommends: a moratorium on refugees for one year, until Trump's new Homeland Security Department can reorganize and set up intense vetting procedures. Right now, under the Obama administration, the feds cannot properly investigate refugees who want to come here. The system is broken.
All undocumented people already here must register with the feds at their local post offices within six months. It becomes a felony if they fail to do that, and immediate deportation if they're caught unregistered.
O'REILLY: Once the federal government knows how many undocumented people are here and their circumstance, a fair system of evaluating migrants can then take place, right? On the borders, all of those -- all of them caught trying to enter illegally will be bussed back into Mexico or Canada after being fingerprinted. Second offense, six months in jail, bang. Six months, then another bus ride.
A congressional mandate on how many foreign nationals should be allowed into America each year should be agreed up. Let's get a number, and that number should be generous, but legal papers have to be renewed every year, and actual citizenship will have to be earned over a substantial period of time.
