Immigrants come here and are willing to accept any job that will have them, which 95% of the time are low paying jobs that are very labor intensive that most Americans already don't want to do themselves
If they are low skilled immigrants, they can take jobs that americans won´t apply for.
The additional demand that it cant be a job that would be 'taken from someone already here' adds to the stupidity of the whole plan since 'a job that could be taken from an American' can be defined to mean pretty much any job you want it to, for the 5% of high paying jobs that are staffed by high-skilled immigrants who could be doctors in their own countries but want to be doctors here in America instead, that rule completely shuts them out from entering the country because the higher-skill jobs are ones that could very conceivably go to Americans
Let's say that there is a need for doctors and 5 native born americans apply for it and 3 immigrants apply for it. The doctor´s office would take them all in, all 8 of them to help save patients lives. In this high skilled job, no one loses out on an opportunity. As long as there is enough openings, which there almost always is especially for high skilled jobs, the immigrants can select a job they like that they think they are qualified for.
but requiring that they renounce allegiance to their country of origin is straight stupid.
I based this off of existing US law. This requirement can be modified, but they should to be American first. If they were from China for example, fleeing communism, that´s honorable and all, but if that's the case, why would they honor China? They fled China because they hated China and respected America more.
For number 5 there are pockets throughout America where you can get by and be a good citizen while not having the best English. New York, Seattle, LA, San Diego, Miami, El Paso, Chicago, New Jersey
If you checked out the document, you would see that this is merely a requirement for citizenship. Under this plan, it would be legally possible to not know a word of English and still get a greencard for example. You can live in the country, you just can´t vote until you learn English and pay a processing fee for the citizenship card. I don´t want to have to provide dozens of translations for voting ballots and it prevents separatist movements.
1) Coursework arguably isn't the best way to teach immigrants English
The immigrant can select any method they want to learn it. They can learn it in a class. They can learn it due to exposure.
What the fuck is even the point with number 7?
The point of this is to help keep the US integrated and to prevent separatist movements.
Not only would it be needlessly bureaucratic to have the government spend a ton of tax dollars on deciding which state each and every immigrant should settle in
It would be cheap. The immigrant largely decides what state they settle in. Many immigrants won´t care what state they settle in. 160 million people want to come to the US. Because of this, for every 2 native born Americans that exist in the country, there would be 1 immigrant. This helps spread the effects of immigration more evenly across the country.
but Im pretty sure it's not even Constitutional for the government to say which state you have to live in
Where does the constitution say this?
If a Japanese immigrant wants to live in Wisconsin because they always dreamed of having a dairy farm and because they like cold winters, is the government going to reject that request and force them settle in Washington with many other Japanese Americans?
Since I would prefer it if the Japanese immigrant settled away from other Japanese immigrants to help integrate and assimilate the Japanese person quicker and to give rural America some immigrants, I would be fine with them owning a dairy farm in Wisconsin. The immigrant has a say in where they would go under my plan and this would be taken into account. If lets say they are moving for jobs, and their company has a place in NY and Missouri. The immigrant can go to Missouri and that solves it. The goal of this requirement is to maintain integration and unification so America isin´t divided on cultural grounds.
This power could also be easily exploited by a corrupt administration to also have immigrants only live in a handful of states just for political purposes.
The point of the rule is for immigrants to live in every state in significant numbers to maintain integration and to prevent one area from becoming so immigrant that it wants to break away from the non-immigrant rest of the country. My main concern is with the Hispanics. If we allow them to settle wherever they want, most would settle in urban areas and in the South West. If they become too hispanophone, they might want to break away from the US on cultural grounds. Many countries have experienced multiculturalism only for it to destroy their country, like Austria-Hungary and Yugoslavia.
