I believe they should be put under our ways. They must meet our standards to even get in and at least get to know our language. If someone enters and can't identify even the simplest things in our society what right do they have to be under it.

American-
noun: American; plural noun: Americans
1.
a native or citizen of the United States.

I trust you will agree with this definition. This is Google's definition of American. Since the immigrants are obviously not natives of America, then you are saying that they should be forced to become Citizens. I do not believe that we should force people to become American citizens if they don't want to.
"I believe they should be put under our ways."
Why should they be? Obviously, someone just coming from a different culture is not going to be an expert about our society.
Our nation is one of freedom. What you are saying is that they have to change their ways in order to conform to society.
Also, what are our ways?
Who will decide what immigrants have to have to inter the country?
The key problem I have with this is the word forced.
I trust you will agree with this deffiniton as well.

Force-
make (someone) do something against their will.
Again, it is not right to force someone to conform to your "American" ideals.
