There's one way to keep Americans here to enjoy all of our government "benefits". Close the boarders. If you cannot afford to stay, you cannot afford to leave, either.

This is for those who owe $50,000 or more in taxes, but for some people, $50,000 in taxes can add up pretty fast (days, weeks, months). There were many Americans who encountered an economic breakdown in 2008 and since. Many very productive citizens paid that much every month or less.

I think the law is not so unusual as it may be portrayed. Many countries will not allow people a work visa if they have not paid the taxes in their home country anyway. At the same time, it definitely opens some doors to abuse and is worthy of a vigorous debate about extending government control - as should always be the case.
