Greg Corombos of Radio America and Jim Geraghty of National Review applaud Donald Trump for maintaining order at his press conference as Fusion’s Jorge Ramos refused to wait for his turn to ask questions. They also express disappointment in Ted Cruz as he blatantly ducks Megyn Kelly’s question on how he would enforce a repeal of birthright citizenship. And they laugh as Hillary Clinton confidant and Anthony Weiner spouse Huma Abedin accuses Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley of damaging her reputation.

    I’m disappointed with Cruz and his answer. I’ve always thought that the way to deal with the illegals is to carve them into groups, and deal with each group–giving the reasons for the treatment they receive.

    First, all illegal immigrants convicted of a crime other than some mickey mouse strict liability crime, deport upon apprehension. Got kids? They go too whether they’re US citizens or not. You should have obeyed our laws. Besides, the kids have citizenship in the other country. Well, welcome them back at 18 or 21, as long as they renounce their other citizenship. Trump started this way yesterday, and I liked it.

    Second, all illegal immigrants who committed identify fabrication or identify theft or entitlement fraud–deport. That’s two strikes like the group above. If you have kids, they go too. See above.

    Third, all gang affiliates and enablers. Clear them out along with their kids. We don’t need these criminal elements.

    Fourth, all visa overstayers. These are students, workers, visitors who had a special deal convincing the US to let down its guard to allow them to enter. I have no sympathy–NONE. They and their kids must go. We had a deal, and they breached it. The US citizen kids can benefit from their citizenship in their home country and can return in the future at 18 or 21.

    Fifth, e-verify should weed out the single people.

    Sixth, we’re left with families of illegal immigrants who have stayed out of trouble. Here, let’s check them out. Employment history, longstanding residence in the US, community recommendations. I’d require proof of continuous residence of, say, 10 years or more.

    In the end, no family separations. Kids remain with the family–family is always stronger than citizenship. And invariably they’ll benefit from citizenship in their parents country.

    What’s the problem?
