For what it's worth, I don't think citizenship should automatically be granted to anyone who is allowed into the US, and I'm not so sure it should be automatically granted to everyone already living here, or everyone born here.  I think there needs to be a discussion about what citizenship means, what it should mean, and how it should be earned.  My concern with immigration and this blog is with individual rights; people's right to live where they please, trade with whom they please, and employ or work for whom they please.

They can stay but if they want to apply for citizenship they must leave the country and then apply from outside the borders.

Then again, in a truly free society, the benefits of citizenship would be minimal not much more that a status symbol, I would think.
