U.S. Sovereignty Amendment XXVIII
In 1790, 80% of the population was British and ENGLISH as our language was essentially inferred. It still is....The internet is a stunning example.
In this and other posts you’ve been making an impressive debut to FR, congratulations.
Consider altering the wording in point 4 from: “communication using English” to
“communication using only the English language”
“communication using the English language as the primary language”
depending upon what is intended.
Also I recommend removing the breath comma after “elections”.
Can’t help but think that those horses already left the barn but, I totally agree.
Rewrite needed. As stated, you're barring people from having an illegal citizenship status. I don't think that's what you meant; I'd go with:
No person residing within the jurisdiction of the United States, whose presence is unlawful, shall obtain any support, funding, or benefits provided to citizens and legal residents of the United States.
I believe your intent was to make it so that illegal residents cannot receive any benefits from the US, rather than just restating their illegal status as being here illegally.
Additionally, I specifically added the qualifier "and legal residents" since they are - IMHO rightly so - afforded some benefits given to citizens. Those here legally are not the problem, and we should extend graces as needed, as most of them are either here as tourists (in which case, common courtesy should extend medical/emergency/disaster care), legal immigrants/green card holders usually working towards citizenship, or at least paying their fair share and participating in society in a positive manner.
I think if a more better amendment on sovereignty would prohibit the signing of global govenment and global bureaucratic treaties. That is the the real threat to sovereignty.
I don’t think we need to go to war against Mexico, Haiti, Cuba, Guatamala, Honduras, etc. As the 0bama daughter said, just plug the damn hole.

Thanks to all so far who have contributed. Keep the good feedback coming and I will periodically amend the proposal.
I feel this is an excellent exercise to show the ridiculous excuse for a governing body we call Congress just how simple this process really is.
Proposed concurrent legislation:
1. Illegal aliens are to be detained upon detection and deported within twenty-four hours.
2. Any citizen knowingly employing, sheltering, concealing, or otherwise assisting (other than emergency medical care) an illegal alien shall suffer forfeiture of all property, real and personal, all assets, businesses, business licenses, and any other thing except his/her physical freedom and two changes of clothing; after which he/she may seek employment and start over.
3. Any non-citizen legally resident, acting as described in para 2 above, shall suffer the same penalty and be deported to his/her country of origin within 48 hours.
4. Any public official, in any branch of government, at any level, who under color of clemency, legal discretion, or other official privilege, shall obstruct, alter, or modify the swift application and extent of paras 1-3 above to any degree soever, shall suffer the same penalty and be summarily removed from office.
(Thats to keep judges from saying ooooo, thats too harsh and governors etc. from handing out pardons to business-owner buddies.)
