In the article "A Solution to Illegal Immigration?," John Bambenek argues that the problem of illegal immigration has been caused by the government spending decades not enforcing the law and by "broadcasting" that the government has no intention of enforcing the law. For this reason Bambanek believes that America shouldn't blame immigrants for coming into America in hope for a better life. Bambenek proposes a solution to this issue. He argues that the government should perform a background check on all immigrants to detect if they have caused any problems. If that person has caused no problems he would be required to briefly return home and be allowed to return. Once they return they will be required to use legitimate information for any job they have and provide the same information to the government and they will have very limited access to welfare programs. Bambenek believes that more visas should be given to immigrants and the process for allowing them to get in should be simplified because this would prevent the "black market" immigrant transport problem occurring in America. Bombanek argues this solution to the immigration problem would be sufficient in getting all the legitimate workers documents while isolating the criminal elements involved in trying to get documented.

In the article "The Real Solution to Illegal Immigration," according to Craig Steiner the solution to the immigration problem is to secure the border, punish illegal immigrants, institute effective employment authorization checks, and have same effective authorization checks for receiving benefits. Steiner believes that the first and most important step is to secure the border. In order to accomplish this Steiner says that the government should build a three-layer fence that will include a single electrical fence that will shock the person that touch it and at the same time inform the border patrol so that they could detain the intruders. The second step is to punish illegal immigrants by detaining them in immigration confinement camps built along the southern border. Immigrant would be kept in these inexpensive confinement camps for a certain period of time that depends on the number of offenses they committed. Steiner concludes his solution by stating that all employees should be required to check the documents of a potential employee using a federal database combining information from the Social Security Administration and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service. The same process would be used to determine whether they receive benefits from the government or not.
