During the past few weeks, Peirspictiochtai Ar An Saol detailed a variety of ways that the United States of America could update the country's policies regarding immigration into this nation.

Examples were provided showing how American land could be leased permanently to another nation; how pregnant women nearing their times of giving birth as well as others needing immediate medical care could be provided with that needed assistance in a humane manner; how babies born to those pregnant women would not attain American citizenship because the babies were never under the jurisdiction of the United States; how people could be transported in vehicles to, from, and within the United States of America without impacting their immigration status or their citizenship because they were not subject to American laws; how people legitimately seeking asylum could be housed in safe areas while their individual cases were reviewed based on a timetable set by the United States; how the country could effectively stop individuals not approved for entry into the United States from ever being under the jurisdiction of the United States; and how the United States could reassert its authority to determine entry by non-citizens into the country.
