There is no principle which can be invoked to deny others the right to enter the United States because (as noted by others): the US, unlike Europe, is a nation of immigrants.
Now, given that, what is the appropriate way to account for those who wish to live here?
- Register identifying documents: name, photo, family ties.
- Require that they will consent to all local and federal laws and uphold the principles of the U.S. Constitution. Further, they must not disturb any Native Peoples encountered. Inform them that they may be called to defend the country.
This is all that should be necessary. Let market forces, their personal spirit, and the law do the rest.
The only force which could possibly be used to deny an individual entrance into the United States is whether they have outstanding debt obligations or criminal warrants (as defined by their prior country) which could provoke trouble for local enforcement.
