For four decades, the United States has taken in immigrants in vast numbers, but more Americans are now on welfare, and good middle class jobs have been exported to cheap-labor countries. The so-called immigration reforms promoted by the Chamber of Commerce would make these problems even worse. Senator Sessions recently provided all members of Congress with an “Immigration Handbook,” which offers guiding principles for immigration policy. Above all, he wants an immigration system that serves the interests of American citizens.
To keep our country safe, we must secure the border and keep track of everyone in our country on a visa. To help our country prosper, we need to limit visas and stop employers from hiring illegals. Taking Senator Sessions’ advice would stop the downward pressure on wages and enable Americans to find better paying jobs. Senator Sessions knows what sensible immigration policy should look like. His new Handbook offers plenty of good advice for anyone who wants to make our immigration system work for Americans again.
