Lower immigration BOTH legal and illegal would truly help the entire country except employers and the Democratic party. Come on, has it ever made sense to let in large numbers of low wage foreigners to compete with US workers when we have such unemployment and wage stagnation? But don't forget, even today employers often insist there is a labor and skills shortage and there are jobs Americans won't do. And they also insist more foreign workers are the ONLY answer (forget about hiring or training US workers). And of course it's a "coincidence" H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc. have always come overwhelmingly from low wage countries, India in particular (forget Japan or Western Europe). Anyone think THAT'S an accident? In addition to employment, when you further consider education and health costs, population congestion, terrorism, disease, language issues, lawlessness etc. a very strong case can be made for immigration restriction. But employers and our elite soooo love their cheap labor and servants. And Democrats soooo love that recent immigrants vote overwhelmingly for the Dems. All done with little regard for what it does to the rest of the country.
Lower immigration BOTH legal and illegal would truly benefit the entire country except employers for many reasons. btw it would also benefit the GOP: Recent immigrants rarely vote Repub and even Sen Amnesty McCain couldn't change that. Immigration today is very often about cheap labor. Does it make sense to let in large numbers of low wage immigrants to compete for US jobs when we have such unemployment and wage stagnation? But even today employers often insist there is a labor and skills shortage and there are jobs Americans won't do. Immigration is great for employers and our elite but terrible for everyone else.But our elite in both parties soooo love their cheap labor and servants! This can really harm the country, and the GOP also!
Lower immigration, BOTH legal and illegal would truly help the entire country except employers and the Democratic party. At a time of high unemployment and wage stagnation does it make sense to bring in large numbers of foreign workers, who are very often "coincidentally" from low wage countries? But even today employers often claim there is a labor and skills shortage and there are jobs Americans won't do. And they insist foreign workers are the ONLY solution (forget hiring or training US workers). When will we realize immigration today is very often about cheap labor? It's great for employers and terrible for everyone else. And don't forget the other costs of high immigration: education and health care costs, population congestion, terrorism, disease, language issues, lawlessness, etc. Oh btw recent immigrants rarely vote for the GOP. Even Sen Amnesty McCain couldn't change that.
The establishment GOP which includes Huntsman and the Chamber of Commerce wants to make itself richer regardless of what it does to the rest of the country. This is especially true in immigration policy. High immigration is great for employers and our elite but overall very bad for the country as a whole. Even today employers often insist there is a labor and skills shortage, and there are jobs Americans won't do. And then they insist higher immigration is the ONLY answer (forget about hiring or training US workers). And it's a coincidence H-1B, J-1, L-1, etc. come overwhelmingly from low wage countries (forget Japan or Western Europe). When will we see immigration today is mostly about cheap labor. Great for employers and our elite, but terrible for everyone else. And don't forget the other costs of high immigration: education and health care costs, population congestion, terrorism, disease, language issues, lawlessness. Oh btw recent immigrants rarely vote for the GOP and even Sen Amnesty McCain couldn't change that.
The GOP guy has to be for immigration restriction BOTH legal and illegal (just think of Eric Cantor). Immigration today is largely about cheap labor - great for employers and terrible for everyone else. How else to explain H-1B, J-1, etc. come overwhelmingly from low wage countries (forget Japan or Western Europe). Anyone think THAT'S an accident? Does it make sense to bring in large numbers of low wage foreign workers when we have such unemployment and wage stagnation? Also don't forget all the other high costs of immigration: education and health care costs, population congestion, terrorism, disease, language issues, lawlessness. Pointing out the many negatives of high immigration wouldn't cost the GOP votes. Those who want high immigration already vote Democrat. And recent immigrants rarely vote for the GOP. Even Sen Amnesty McCain couldn't change that. Follow the lead of Alabama Sen Sessions. Immigration provides a rare case for the GOP to be progressive and stand for workers against the crony capitalist CEO class.

Lower immigration BOTH legal and illegal would truly benefit the entire country except employers. Immigration today is very often just about cheap labor -great for employers but terrible for everyone else. Does it make sense to let in large numbers of low wage foreigners from poor countries to compete for US jobs? But even today employers often insist there is a labor and skills shortage and there are jobs Americans won't do. And of course it's a "coincidence" H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc. come overwhelmingly from poor countries (forget Japan or Western Europe). Sheeze!
Lower immigration BOTH legal and illegal would truly help the whole country except employers. Immigration these days is mostly about cheap labor - great for employers but terrible for everyone else. Even today with our unemployment and wage stagnation employers often insist there is a labor and skills shortage, and there are jobs Americans won't do. And they insist more immigration is the ONLY solution (forget about hiring or training US workers). And of course it's a coincidence H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc. come overwhelmingly from low wage countries, India in particular (forget Japan or Western Europe). We're sooo gonna regret it if we don't get immigration reduction. It's being abused all over the place. But employers soooo love their cheap labor and servants. And Democrats soooo love that recent immigrants vote overwhelmingly Democrat. Doesn't anyone care about the regular US working class anymore? Sheeze!
Is Chapman kidding? Illegal immigrants brazenly march in the street and protest. Most admit these days hardly anyone really gets deported. Come on. In truth reduction in BOTH legal and illegal immigration would really help the entire country except employers. Does anyone think it's a good idea to add large numbers of low wage immigrants to compete for US jobs when we have such unemployment? Immigration these days is very often about cheap labor - great for employers but terrible for everyone else. It's NO accident H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc. come overwhelmingly from low wage countries, India in particular (forget Japan or Western Europe). Anyone think THAT'S an accident? Oh btw recent immigrants rarely vote for the GOP and even Sen Amnesty McCain couldn't change that.
Lower immigration BOTH legal and illegal would truly help the entire country except employers. And it would help Republicans also.
Lower immigration BOTH legal and illegal would truly help the entire country except employers. It would definitely help US Black and Hispanic citizens as well. Does it make sense to bring in large numbers of low wage foreigners when we have such unemployment and wage stagnation? When you further consider employment, education and health costs, population congestion, terrorism, disease, language issues, use of gov't services, etc. how can you feel otherwise? But employers and our elite soooo love their cheap labor and servants regardless what it does to everyone else. And Democrats sooo love that recent immigrants vote overwhelmingly Dem, and it also makes them feel morally superior to support easy high uncontrolled immigration. We're in a real pickle on this issue.
