Lowering BOTH legal and illegal immigration would truly help the whole country except employers. When you consider employment, education and health costs, population congestion, terrorism, disease, language issues, etc. how can you feel otherwise? But idealists such as Linda always end up saying we should take in MORE people. And employers love it. After all even today they often insist there is a labor and skills shortage and there are jobs Americans won't do. And their solution is always more foreign workers (forget training or hiring US workers). And it's a coincidence H-1B, J-1, L-1 come overwhelmingly from low wage countries. We need to wake up and see immigration today is largely about cheap labor. Great for employers, terrible for everyone else. Ugh!!

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.

At a time of high unemployment and wage stagnation the worst thing to do is increase the number competing for US jobs, which is just what "comprehensive immigration reform" would do.

What If There Were Too Many Jobs?

Don't fall for the labor and skills shortage arguments given by CEOs. Often they just want to bring in cheap foreign workers under H1B, etc. A true labor shortage would mean low unemployment and rising wages. Instead we have unemployment, wage stagnation, layoffs, outsourcing, and even some credible cases of workers being forced to train their replacements. We're soooo gonna regret it if "comprehensive immigration reform" passes. Does it make sense to increase the number competing for US jobs at a time like this?

Mr. Hill is right about the minimum wage, but should discuss the negative effects of high immigration and free trade agreements. For many years now in their zeal for profits our CEO class has first sought to send production to low wage countries and then send the goods back here through free trade agreements. If that doesn't work the next step has been to bring cheap labor here through easy immigration. Hence even today employers often insist there is a labor and skills shortage and there are jobs Americans won't do. Then they insist ONLY foreign workers are the solution (forget 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). We're sooooo gonna regret it if comprehensive immigration reform passes. If we had unemployment before it's gonna get sooooo much worse. Ugh! Mr. Hill should discuss immigration and crony capitalism.
One of the biggest loser policies of our day that would negatively affect us forever after is "comprehensive immigration reform". At a time of high unemnployment and wage stagnation does it make sense to bring in foreign workers to compete? But even today our employers insist 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 about training US workers). And it's a coincidence H-1B, J-1, L-1 come overwhelmingly from low wage countries (forget Japan or Western Europe). Once immigrants are here most will never leave. Talk about giving employers what they want today, but ruining the country forever after! This CIR business is the worst idea our elite could come up with. It's soooo selfish and self serving!
We soooo need to reduce BOTH legal and illegal immigration. It would help the whole country except employers and Democrats. But our wealthy elite sooooo love their cheap labor and servants regardless what it does to the rest of the country. Boo!
