Break the CHAIN.
Jason Riley of the Wall Street Journal writes:
At over 1 million people per year, immigration numbers are four times the traditional average while millions of citizens and legal immigrants struggle to find full-time work.
The solution is to adopt these recommendations of the bi-partisan U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform:
- unlimited immigration for nuclear family members (as well as our fair share of refugees and truly world-class talents); and
- the elimination non-essential immigration categories like chain migration and the visa lottery.
The RAISE Act would fulfill these recommendations and immediately open job opportunities (and lives of dignity) to unemployed Americans currently dependent on government assistance.
