    HERE IS THE BEST SOLUTION TO OUR ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION PROBLEM:

    1.  $10,000 FINE TO EMPLOYER FOR ANY ILLEGAL ALIEN WORKING FOR THEM, DOUBLING THE FINE EACH TIME THEY ARE GOT

    2.  MAKE ILLEGALS INELIGIBLE FOR ANY GOVERNMENT BENEFITS

    3.  ONE YEAR OF HARD LABOR FOR THE FIRST TIME CAUGHT ILLEGALLY IN THIS COUNTRY

    4.  5 YEARS HARD LABOR SECOND TIME CAUGHT ILLEGALLY IN THIS COUNTRY

    5.  THIRD TIME WE WILL JUST SHOOT YOU THAT WAY WE KNOW YOU WON'T BECOMING BACK THE FOURTH TIME

    Nope

    The person can petition to sponsor family members but its not free and it takes many years.Right now the average wait to bring a sibling to the US is 17 years

    If his US citizen spouse sponsors his permanent residency and he later chooses to naturalize then once he's a US citizen he can apply to sponsor his own immediate family members (assuming he earns enough to function as their sponsor). The exception to this would be minor children whom can be included in the original petition and also sponsored by his US citizen spouse.

    No.  Even the spouse of the US citizen cannot "come to the US for free".

    Absolutely not true.

    Moreover, in some cases they can't come to the US at all. Depending on what country they are from, they may still need to qualify for a visa, or be sponsored for a green card, and there may be an extended waiting period.

    Lol nope - or at least, not quickly or easily. Sponsoring family visas takes upwards of a decade.
