Immigrants Are The Problem: We Don’t Have Enough Of Them

October 27th, 2010 by Al Lewis (alewis)

The United States allows people to immigrate if they are going to create 50 or more jobs here.   Why not reduce that threshold to, for instance, 20 or more jobs? 

If that reduced threshold encourages another 10,000 people to immigrate, we gain 200,000 jobs.  Plus, we add 10,000 more people to buy our unsold houses.

If I’m wrong, no harm, no foul, right?  Maybe only 1000 additional people will want to come to a country that appears not to like them (not that their own countries are exactly beds of roses for human rights) but that’s still 20,000 jobs we don’t have today.

    yes,their presence is complimentary because of their

    contribution. In particular, the very high concentration of workers in the agricultural industry maybe keep food prices relatively lower.

    Of coure this proposal makes sense duh, but you can’t even mention the word “Immigrants” without getting booed off the stage, even in a spelling bee.
