Another reason why the majority of Americans don't want Congress to vote for any amnesty scheme was the news that "A sharp drop in job growth sows new concerns." The average Joe in America can't support the idea of giving permanent residency to 11 million foreign job-seekers when our own labor-force participation is lower than it's been in 25 years. Do we really need more high-school dropouts looking for U.S. jobs? Don't we have enough Americans trying to support their families who can't find full-time jobs or jobs that pay as well as the jobs they held ten years ago? Why should available jobs go to aliens who broke our laws instead of to American citizens?
Congress should hold dozens of public hearings to hear testimony on amnesty issues such as how legalization of millions of illegals will impact unemployed Americans, the short- and long-term cost to the taxpayers, and how government will establish border security.
