These statistics show that many Americans are left out of today’s economy, but Democrats and many Republicans continue to insist on so-called “comprehensive” immigration reform, which will only make matters worse. When talking about immigration, comprehensive reform means more legal immigrants and amnesty for more illegals. We already give one million people a year permanent legal status and offer hundreds of thousands of visas. In addition, 12 million illegal aliens would step forward to compete for jobs and claim government benefits. President Obama’s unlawful executive amnesties have already let several million into our workforce, which former Cincinnati Mayor Ken Blackwell calls an unlawful attack on American workers at every skill level. Obama’s actions also harm workers who choose to retire, as Obama’s amnesties entitle illegals to Social Security.
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is the only candidate talking about controlling immigration to improve American jobs and wages. As he said in Iowa, “I don’t know how anyone can argue against that.” This view has wide support at the grassroots. Americans will reward the candidates that are willing to limit immigration.
