Confer Citizenship to all Long Term Residents

All persons who can be proved have lived in The United States for longer than than twenty five years, and who have not been convicted of a felony shall be considered citizens, regardless of their initial method of entry. Persons wanted for crimes by other nations are excluded from this consideration.

Not likely the States would ratify hiding in the country for 25 years. This is a feel good idea. The Founding Fathers dealth with concepts.

Definitely the most out there of my proposed amendments, but I think it's important to have some sort of stable naturalization process that isn't subject to the caprices of Congress, even if it is so difficult as to only be used as a last resort.

We are a country of laws. Feel good ideas to circumvent Congress is not a good idea.

I can not see allowing someone the right of citizenship in this nation just because they have not been apprehended. We are a nation of laws, people have lined up and waited for years just for a chance to enter this nation for a chance to become a citizen and to allow another 20 or 40 million illegals the right of citizenship is nothing other than spitting on those who obey the laws.

You do not reward law breakers with citizenship.
