Mass immigration worsens the long-term unemployment crisis. Our country wrongly permits over one million new immigrants to legally gain entrance per annum. Most of those individuals are adults, which makes them eligible to seek employment opportunities.
Mass immigration injects hundreds of thousands of new job competitors into our weak recovering economy. It is time to put legal Americans first. Until we can lower our unemployment rate to a U-6 level of 3%. it is time to drastically reduce immigration quotas. Unless an immigrant is an entrepreneur who can hire 5-10 Americans, at a minimum, then grant them a fast pass to citizenship.
