Star Parker should have mentioned Tillis' poor record on immigration. He's been a chamber of commerce tool and helped employers gain cheap foreign immigrant labor at the expense of the US workforce. Maybe much of Tillis' trouble is that the Republican base doesn't think much of him. Lower immigration would truly help the entire country except employers. US Black and Hispanic citizens also suffer greatly from uncontrolled immigration. Has it ever made sense to let in foreign worker competition when we have such unemployment and wage stagnation? Don't believe ANY claim of labor or skills shortage or jobs Americans won't do. It's about cheap labor these days. It's NO accident H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc. come overwhelmingly from low wage countries (forget Japan or Western Europe)!
Ann is very correct in this article. Lower immigration BOTH legal and illegal would greatly help the entire country except employers and our elite. But our elite soooo love their cheap labor and servants regardless what it does to everyone else. And Democrats love that recent immigrants vote overwhelmingly Dem regardless what it does to everyone else. Lower immigration would help everyone but employers and Democrats. When you consider employment, education and health costs, terrorism, disease, language issues, population congestion, etc. how can you feel otherwise?

Lower immigration BOTH legal and illegal would truly help the country except employers. Immigratrion today is very often just about cheap labor. When you consider employment, education and health costs, terrorism, disease, language issues, population congestion, use of govt services etc. there are MANY reasons to reduce immigration. btw, Black and Hispanic citizens suffer as much as anyone from easy high immigration. Also fyi, recent immigrants rarely vote for the GOP regardless of what immigration policy the GOP takes. Even Sen Amnesty McCain couldn't change that. And finally a fairly high percentage of Hispanics vote for lowering immigration. Immigration reduction is a winner for everyone but employers and Democrats, even if we don't realize it completely.
No state has suffered more from high uncontrolled immigration than CA. And yet the CA GOP put up high immigration enthusiasts Carly Fioranni and Meg Whitman as candidates not long ago. And recent immigrants rarely vote for the GOP. Even Senator Amnesty McCain can't change that. No place needs immigration restriction more than CA. Does it make sense to bring in large numbers of foreigners when we have such unemployment and wage stagnation? But Fioranni and Whitman LOVE high uncontrolled immigration and H-1B etc. After all, there is a labor and skills shortage and there are jobs Americans won't do. And it's a "coincidence" H-1B etc. come overwhelmingly from low wage countries such as India (forget Japan or Western Europe). When will we learn immigration today is largely about cheap labor? It's great for employers and our elite but terrible for everyone else. Immigration restriction needs to be a part of any GOP resurgence today. It would feel better if immigration had even been addressed in this article.
Ah another article claiming how much we need more foreign workers. And this comes against a background of high unemployment, wage stagnation, layoffs, outsourcing, and even some credible cases of workers being forced to train their replacements. And often the solution employers push for will be more foreign workers through H-1B, OPT, J-1, L-1. After all many employers even today insist there is a labor and skills shortage and there are jobs Americans won't do. And they insist the ONLY solution is more foreign workers (forget about recruiting or training US workers). And it's also a "coincidence" H-1B, OPT, J-1 come overwhelmingly from low wage countries (forget Japan or Western Europe). When will the public wake up that immigration today is largely about cheap labor. It's great for employers but terrible for everyone else. And don't forget education and health costs, population congestion, terrorism, disease, language issues etc. We're sooo gonna regret it if comprehensive immigration reform passes.

Lowering immigration, BOTH legal and illegal, would truly help the entire country except employers and Democrats. But there's the issue: employers and our elite sooo love their cheap labor and servants regardless what it does to everyone else. And the Democratic party sooo loves that recent immigrants vote overwhelmingly Dem regardless what it does to the rest of the country. Even today employers often insist there is a labor and skills shortage and there are jobs Americans won't do. And they insist their only solution is foreign workers. And it's a "coincidence" H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc. come overwhelmingly from low wage countries (forget Japan or Western Europe). Immigration reduction has become so critical to the health of our country.
Lower immigration BOTH legal and illegal would greatly help the entire country except employers and Democrats. But employers and our elite soooo love their cheap labor and servants. And Democrats soooo love that recent immigrants vote overwhelmingly Democrats. But for most people easy high immigration is terrible. When you consider employment, education and health costs, population congestion, terrorism, disease, language issues, etc. high immigration has just been bad. But employers, our elite, and the Democrats soooo love easy high immigration regardless what it does to everyone else.

And this one isn't fixable. Once they're here, immigrants rarely leave. Promoting immigration restriction would also help the GOP and cost them nothing. Those who vote for high easy immigration vote Democrat anyway. But the GOP loves the high campaign contributions for supporting easy immigration regardless what it does to the country. Just ask Bush, McCain, or Romney.

We soooo need to reduce BOTH legal and illegal immigration for soooo many reasons. Reducing terrorism and disease are certainly important reasons, and our unemployment situation would also be greatly helped by immigration reduction. Has it ever made sense to let in large numbers of foreign workers when we have high unemployment and wage stagnation? Isn't it obvious by now that immigration today is largely about cheap labor, and that it's great for employers but terrible for everyone else? How else can you explain H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc. have always come overwhelmingly from low wage countries such as India (forget Japan or Western Europe)? Not so long ago Bill Gates, Sheldon Addelson, and Warren Buffet wrote an article about how much we need comprehensive immigration reform. The same week Microsoft announced large layoffs. Hmmm, sounds like employers and our elite soooo love high immigration and low wages regardless of what it does to everyone else.

McCain is also utterly terrible on the immigration issue. At a time of high unemployment and wage stagnation he sees no reason we can't welcome endless numbers of immigrants. But even today employers often insist there is a labor and skills shortage, and there are jobs Americans won't do. We're sooo gonna regret it if we don't reduce BOTH legal and illegal immigration. But employers and our elite soooo love their cheap labor and servants regardless what it does to everyone else. Oh btw recent immigrants rarely vote for the GOP and even Sen Amnesty McCain couldn't change that. Immigration is bad for the country and the GOP, but employers and our elite soooo love their cheap labor and servants regardless what it does to everyone else.
