Requirements for being President

There are only a few legal requirements for someone who wants to run for president. Those requirements include: he or she must be a natural born citizen of the U.S., must be at least 35 years old and must have been living in the U.S. for at least 14 years. The reason a candidate must live in the U.S. for 14 years is so that he or she has firsthand knowledge of the issues faced by Americans.

My Stand on Immigration

As President I would address the problem our country has with Immigration. Currently we have a limit of 675,000 immigrants allowed into our country per year. When I become President I want to reduce that number to somewhere around 100,000 people per year because if we continue to allow so many people in we will become even more in debt taking on the extra poverty. Regarding illegal immigration, Currently there are approximately 11 million Illegal Immigrants living in the United States. To fix this problem I would increase the funding of border patrol and kick out as many illegal immigrants as possible.

I would recommend consideration on legislation regarding this issue of immigration. The laws I would propose would benefit every citizen of the country because it would make sure that everyone that is here is meant to be here. I would also have the option to temporarily deploying the National Guard to start gaining control of this problem.
