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.

Has John McCain Lost His Mind?

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.

Lower immigration would truly help the whole country except employers. 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. High immigration hurts the country and the GOP. I doubt we'll really improve our employment situation until we stop flooding the labor markets with cheap indentured H-1B, J-1, L-1 from low wage places such as India. But employers and our elite really love high and easy immigration!

We simply can't take in limitless numbers of immigrants. No country can. We simply have to reduce BOTH legal and illegal immigration. At a time of high unemployment and wage stagnation does it make sense to bring in desperately poor low wage foreign workers? It's entirely reasonable to say immigration today is often about cheap labor. How else can you explain H-1B, J-1, L-1 come overwhelmingly from low wage countries such as India (forget Japan or Western Europe). And don't forget the other immigration costs: Education and healthcare, population congestion, terrorism, disease, language issues, etc. The country will sooo regret it if we don't reduce immigration. But employers and our elite soooo love their cheap labor and servants regardless what it does to everyone else.
We sooo need to reduce BOTH legal and illegal immigration. It will help everyone but employers. It never made sense to bring in foreign workers when we have such unemployment and wage stagnation. Immigration today is very often just about cheap labor. It's NO accident H-1B, J-1, L-1 come overwhelmingly from low wage countries (forget Japan or Western Europe). We're sooo gonna regret it if comprehensive immigration reform passes. We're soooo gonna regret it if we don't reduce immigration. But employers and our elite soooo love their cheap labor and servants regardless what it does to everyone else.

Easy high immigration is good for Democrats and employers but terrible for everyone else. Immigration these days BOTH legal and illegal is very often just about cheap labor. It's NO accident H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc. come overwhelmingly from low wage places such as India (forget Japan or Western Europe). But employers and Democrats soooo love their cheap labor and servants and Democratic voters regardless what it does to everyone else. Sheeze!

Will Obamacare Cost You Your Job?

The author should have discussed high immigration and free trade agreements. Employers love high immigration to flood the labor markets and drive down wages. Immigration today both legal and illegal is very often about cheap labor. It's NO accident H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc. come overwhelmingly from low wage countries such as India (forget Japan or Western Europe). Don't forget our free trade agreements either. In their zeal for profits companies want to send everything to a low wage country. If that doesn't work the next step is to bring the cheap labor here through easy high immigration. We soooo need to get high immigration and free trade agreements under control. Obamacare is bad, but it's not our only problem.
Lower immigration BOTH legal and illegal would truly help the whole country except employers. Does it make sense to let in large numbers of low wage desperate foreigners when we have such unemployment and wage stagnation? But employers and our elite soooo love their cheap labor and servants regardless what it does to everyone else. And make no mistake: immigration today is largely about cheap labor. It's NO accident H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc. have always come overwhelmingly from low wage countries (forget Japan or Western Europe). Oh btw recent immigrants rarely vote for the GOP and even Sen Amnesty McCain couldn't change that. So high immigration hurts the GOP and the country.
