      The costs to our country of the Democrats open-border, free-for-all regarding immigration? Way more than letting American citizens keep more of what THEY EARN.

      I admire AFPs willingness to focus on issues and not personalities. I know they have worked with the administration on several issues like tax reform, criminal justice reform, and the reduction of regulation. But they don’t hesitate to call out and disagree with
      the administration’s desire to have more government control over trade by the use of tariffs.

        In a sense.
        Studies by George Day Borjaus and other economists show the minimum wage, adjusted for inflation, was higher in the 50’s and 60’s than today. In the 50’s you could work at a gas station and afford to support a family of five, buy a house and car – thanks Boomers!

        It’s actually simple… supply and demand. When there is a larger supply of labor it will cheapen the labor force, especially if they’re taking the low-skill, low-wage jobs. There does seem to be a shift happening against corporations and other so-called conservative groups who support immigration.

        I hope this info helps you get started answering the question for yourself.

          Exactly! Corporations want a cheap workforce. Immigration increases the number of workers. More workers result in a lower wage for the average worker. Good for corporations and their bottom line, bad for the average joe and his bank account.

            Right on, someone else seeking truth.

            Did you also know about immigrants who come here on an education visa? After graduation they are hired at higher rates than American graduates because corporations get a discount on them. Who wouldn’t want to hire at a discounted rate?

            Good for corporations, not so much for American graduates looking to start chipping away at their debt.

    We are the third most populous nation on the planet; we do not need more immigrants. We need to focus on creating opportunities for the citizens we already have.

      That is the same thing the KKK said 100 years ago when the Irish Catholics, Germans, and Scandinavians were immigrating the the US. Some things never change.

        I’m statist, not racist. I don’t care where they’re from or what race they are. I believe in America’s responsibility to place the interests of her own people first. As a matter of immigration policy, we do not need more foreign born people taking up residence in our nation.

          Which is confusing since immigration has been a HUGE part of the United States economic growth and leadership in innovation and entrepreneurship. I think we should welcome anyone who wants to contribute and help grow our economy. You should too.
