In other words, why not give them a month at max to gain their citizenship or atleast show that they're working towards it by getting a visa, and learning English? And if they don't show any signs of becoming a citizens, then deport their ass and never allow them back in the country again.
Wouldn't that be a better, more peaceful and fair solution? Because some countries don't offer a way to get a visa to the U.S. Or it's just not accessable to people because those with guns have too much damn control. Shouldn't we atleast give people a chance?

To become a citizen you have to first have been lawfully admitted into this country as a permanent resident and receive a green card. The waiting period is 5 years. They have to fulfill several requirements like understanding simple English and studying US history etc. I believe the waiting period is shorter if the legal resident in question serves in our military.
Obviously the US already gives people a chance.
