To fight unemployment let's work to reduce BOTH legal and illegal immigration. Does it make sense to let in large numbers of new workers when we can't employ US citizens. Don't believe ANY claim of labor shortage from self interested employers. It's ultimately about cheap labor these days. How else to explain H-1B, J-1, L-1 etc workers have always come overwhelmingly from low wage countries such as India (forget Japan or Western Europe).
Immigration reduction would help the entire country except employers. When you consider employment , education and health costs, population congestion, use of govt services, language issues, terrorism, disease, etc. how can you not feel that way??
