Karl Denninger offers his solution to the problem of how to get rid of illegal aliens.
It's really quite simple.
To obtain any social benefit at a state or federal level -- including free public schooling, Medicaid, Section 8, EITC, EBT of any sort (including WIC and Food Stamps) -- the following criteria must be met for all persons living in the household. A person is "living in the household" if their personal effects are in the abode or they sleep there:
Violation of these terms results in the immediate termination of all such benefits in which federal funds are implicated including free public schooling, free lunches, EBT, EITC, Medicaid and similar for all persons in the household.
- Said person(s) are US Citizens OR
- Said person(s) are lawful permanent residents who have been lawful permanent residents for at least ten (10) years OR
- Said person(s) are lawfully present in the United States, having been admitted through a legal immigration or migration program and they have a US Citizen or 10+ year Permanent resident as a formal, voluntary sponsor who is remitting, on a monthly basis, the ratable portion of all social benefits and costs incurred by them or their direct offspring to the US Treasury and State Treasuries, respectively.
. . .
Further, a person reporting such a household, which is found to be harboring illegal invaders, is entitled to 10% of the social benefits that would have otherwise been spent in said household on social benefits for the next 12 months as a "finders fee."
Second, shut off the coyote revenue with the following:
No person may transfer funds out of the United States to a second person not in the United States via any means, including "money transmitters" such as Western Union, Moneygram or the purchase of prepaid accounts valid outside the US unless they provide positive identification as either a US Permanent Resident or Citizen and same is recorded by the transmitter and is both retained and details of same are reported to Treasury when in any calendar year the aggregate amount exceeds the 1099 reporting requirement for any single person ($600.). . .
This instantly detonates the means by which the "coyotes" can collect from migrants who have no money and promise to pay once they get to the United States and start obtaining "freebies" from the US and State governments or via illegal employment.

Seems pretty reasonable and straightforward to me; but the bleeding hearts will jump all over it as "discriminatory" or "unreasonable" or "inhumane". They completely ignore the damage that illegal aliens are doing to our economy just by being here - the undue demands placed on our welfare network, the cost of providing health care for them (usually via EMTALA - where the hospital has no recourse for payment, so it ends up on our backs - or by state [i.e. taxpayer] subsidy), and the additional costs of tracing and getting rid of them.
Sadly, Mr. Denninger's suggestions can't be implemented without the active cooperation of Congress and the Senate; but they've been bought and paid for by Big Business lobbyists who support uncontrolled illegal immigration. President Trump can do a lot, but he's still hamstrung on the big issues, absent legislation to support and fund what he's doing.
Perhaps we should require our lawmakers to spend a month each year actively policing our out-of-control borders, riding along with the Border Patrol and other agencies. Half of their time could be spent riding along with law enforcement personnel in our cities, where they're trying to control the flood of illegal narcotics, gang crime and other plagues that illegal aliens have brought with them. That might give them a more accurate perspective on the realities of the situation.
