Forum: Immigration reform means higher unemployment

Updated: December 27, 2013 6:30AM



Why is it that in all the clamor for “reforming” our immigration laws that were created to protect American jobs, is it never explained how giving work permits to nearly 12 million illegal aliens and doubling legal immigration to 2 million people every year would affect the 20 million Americans who can’t find full-time work?

Aren’t our citizens also entitled to search for a better life?

Both political parties have declared economic war against the very people whose votes they seek during election years. Because and for what?

Because the greedy business community wants a guaranteed supply of cheap labor, and members of Congress see more value in Hispanic votes than they do in putting Americans back to work.
