America’s “vacation in reverse”!
Keep your money folks! No need to save for travel… not that anybody has any money to save. Why take an expensive vacation in South America? South America is coming to us!
Wow, I sure wish L.B.J. was still around so we could properly “thank” him for his “War on Poverty”, and the 1965 Hart-Cellar Immigration Act, also known as the Anyone-With-a-Pulse-Even-a-Low-Grade-Temp-O.K. Act.
Immigration is occurring at rate of 2:1 versus jobs created. Super! More mouths to feed and less means to do so! You see, liberals make their decisions based on feeeelings, rather than logic or data, but even they will have trouble disputing the findings of the Center for Immigration Studies. Gee, I want my country back.
Government data collected in December 2014 show 18 million immigrants (legal and illegal) living in the United States who arrived in January 2000 or later. But only 9.3 million jobs were added over this time period.
In addition, the native-born population 16 and older grew by 25.2 million. Because job growth has not come close to matching immigration and population growth, the share of Americans in the labor force has declined dramatically — a clear indication there is no labor shortage.
Despite this, Congress is considering proposals to increase legal immigration even further; and during the last Congress the Senate actually passed the Schumer-Rubio bill (S.744), which would have doubled legal immigration and legalized illegal immigrants.1 Congress’s disregard for the absorption capacity of the U.S. labor market has profound consequences for American workers.
