The US needs to bring back the Ellis Island concept to regulate immigration along the Mexican border. We realize that more desire to enter the US than the US can accept. Some will always be rejected, such as criminals, psychopaths, terrorists, lazy bums looking for a handout, and carriers of dangerous diseases and parasites. Some will usually be rejected, such as those with no work history. And some should be admitted to the US. But the process needs to be made more fair, expeditious, decisive, and clear.

Creating such centers in San Diego, Nogales, El Paso, Laredo, and Brownsville would be a great start. What say you?
