We should secure the border, ban all immigration for a while, and Americanize the immigrants here, e.g making English the official language.
Of course, there’s much more wealth and income inequality from the tens of millions of dirt poor immigrants, their children, and their relatives.
The domestic population, which benefited from American policies and values, shouldn’t compensate immigrants for the poor policies of their countries, that caused them to move here, and those poor policies shouldn’t be imposed on us. They should have the opportunity to achieve the American Dream.
We should actually help the domestic population of many generations, e.g. the black community, which didn’t share in the American Dream, because of slavery, racism, and the War on Poverty, which caused them to lag on wealth and income, and then devastated the values of the black community.
So, you want unlimited foreigners to work and live in the U.S..
Where do Americans go for work?
When they buy a ticket to the U.S., why do you believe they’ll go back when it expires?
Are they going back now without citizenship or status?
Steven Kopits, without border security, why would a high price for work permits stop them?
Without illegal immigration, the domestic population would do the work for higher wages, raising the labor force participation rate.
Are you suggesting if we offer money to illegal immigrants, some will leave the country?
