Memo to GOP Contenders: Cut Immigration or Quit

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA), in a commentary published in Roll Call  Monday, expose the current system that “…on autopilot, each year…swells the labor supply by issuing millions of new visas to foreign nationals seeking jobs and residency in the United States.”  They note that what most politicians call “immigration reform” would actually increase the current unprecedented flood with amnesty for illegals, and increases in guest worker and legal immigrant visa numbers — all to benefit special interests at the expense of struggling Americans.  They conclude with a call for a new direction:

“After nearly half a century of massive immigration it is time to turn our attention to our own residents.  It is time to help our own workers, families and communities — immigrant and U.S.-born — rise together into the middle class.

We need an immigration policy that shows compassion for Americans.

Anyone running for the White House who cannot publicly commit to these principles should consider a different occupation.  Americans should no longer have to wonder for whom their leaders work.”
