Fixing immigration solves other issues

Published 9:52am Tuesday, July 22, 2014

President Barack Obama and others keep saying that they want to do something for the 15 million Americans who are out of work. But two obvious solutions they totally ignore are enforcing our immigration laws and cutting immigration.

So why do our politicians ignore the two obvious solutions to unemployment? The reason is that many see mass immigration either as a way to obtain cheap votes or as a way to obtain cheap labor for the interests that contribute to them. It’s a situation that won’t change until outraged voters make the politicians change.

The first and most important action that should be taken is to close our southern border. Once we stop the influx of illegal aliens we can deal with those already here.
