At the very least, any attempts to address the asylum process should involve collaboration between government agencies, NGOs, legal experts, and the public.

Becasue 55% of asylum seekers don't report to court, an idea could be to send judges or immigration representatives to be stationed outside of the US at immigration centers, consulates, or designated buildings. This way, cases could be determined more quickly without risking people entering the country first.
Also, reform means evaluating the reasons people are coming. For example, many people that come from Mexico (I live in Texas) site 'a better life' as the reason they are risking entering illegally. What factors in Mexico are leading them to enter? Cartels? Economy? Health? Maybe there are steps we can take to help our neighbors 'help themselves'.
We need a third party, but who can we get that is better than those that are running for office. It is hard to find a good politician!
Our immigration laws are failing but let's make sure that new laws inacted are not worse than we have.

I work in the construction industry in Texas. There is no doubt in my mind that the people that get things built here are immigrants from south of the border. Not only are they hard working, the ones looking for a better life, but our labor needs demand it.
There must be a smoother transition to actual citizenship so those who commit to the American dream can partake in all America can offer.

Just stop all illegal from entering the USA from the South temporarily, until we can create a sane process for vetting. Hopefully this would force legislators to do thier jobs.

Our country has experienced an invasion over the last two years and it must stop. No country tolerates what Americans have had to endure with this swarm of humanity entering our country illegally. However, our immigration system does need to be restructured to accommodate those that need asylum and/or want to migrate legally. This includes becoming citizens and immersing themselves into the American Culture.

The lack of any boarder control is treasonest in my way of thinking, the current policy by the current administration is purposely allowing this flood of who knows who into our country to run and do as they want with no threat of punishment... It's flooding small towns to big cities and everywhere in-between with fentanyl killing our children and loved ones while the administration wants to blame the last president for this issue ...
