Read. Share. Discuss.
Be among the first to comment on "The Real Immigration Debate: Who to Let In and Why" by Mark Krikorian in the Wall Street Journal.
Krikorian tackles the "jobs Americans won't do" myth, but most
importantly, he says all sides must grapple with these basic questions:
family relationships should give rise to special immigration rights?
How should skills be determined? And given the misery that prevails in
so much of the world, what should the limiting principle be for
Read, comment, and share.
recommends an immigration policy that prioritizes spouses and minor
children but eliminates the preference categories for adult extended
family. Sen. Tom Cotton's RAISE Act would do just that. Among the chief beneficiaries: American workers.
acknowledges that reasonable people might disagree that protecting
competing American workers should be the priority in immigration policy,
but he argues that all sides must be clear about their position:

by those who enjoy the fruits of immigrant labor? Different answers are
possible, but the question can't be dodged."
