Time to Punish Illegal Alien Invaders
The US Constitution, 13th Amendment, specifically authorizes involuntary servitude for criminals. Since every illegal alien invader in the US is a criminal who violates our laws, the Constitutional authority for involuntary servitude applies to them. It should be applied to all border crossing invaders.
To discourage illegal invasion of our nation we need to reward those who report criminals by giving the criminal to them for 5 or 10 years of involuntary servitude. Anyone who identifies or captures a criminal alien could, upon summary trial and conviction, put the captured criminal to work at whatever task they need doing for 5 or 10 years. After the period of indentured service the criminal would then be deported.
Businesses could report illegal aliens who apply for jobs, and then put them to work for 5 or 10 years without pay. It would encourage American business and discourage illegal alien criminals. Applying for American jobs to earn money would be impossible.
Home owners could report illegal aliens in their neighborhood and then put them to work mowing the lawn, painting the home, cleaning or cooking, doing all the hard or dirty jobs around the home. Or, they could sell the indentured servant's labor to a business or labor contractor at a nice profit.
The services of criminal invaders caught by the US Border Patrol, Immigration Service, or Local Sheriffs could be sold to labor contractors, and the profits used to reduce taxpayer cost of enforcing our laws.
Labor contractors could purchase the services of several criminals and hire them out for road construction, farming, mining, or any other difficult or dangerous tasks.
The only cost to Americans would be an old storage shed for several of them to sleep in and a sack of dried beans for them to eat. Hard working labor has to have a healthy diet. At the end of their years of involuntary service they would be sent home.
This program would greatly discourage illegal aliens from coming to the US. There would be no criminals taking well paid American jobs to earn money. There would be no American businesses looking the other way to hire criminal aliens when they could get their labor for free. Most criminal aliens already here would stampede for the border, leaving the US before they got caught. Cities and towns across America would experience greatly reduced costs for schools, hospitals, roads, police, and public services. With the criminal stampede ended, our border patrol and immigration services would have time to round up the rest.
Again, involuntary service for criminals is specifically authorized by the US Constitution. Its time to get tough on the criminals who are invading our nation by the millions. Put them to work as punishment for their crime, and then send them home. It is not difficult to protect our nation from invasion. All that is needed is the will to do so. This proposal would punish criminal aliens, reward Americans who have been violated, and discourage wholesale violation of American law.
