It is disappointing how many in the government and media continue the false narrative that more immigration is needed to solve worker shortages in the United States.

These same businesses are mainly looking for any means to exploit cheaper labor. As has been well-documented, businesses are resorting to hiring child labor, suppressing wages, wage theft, and forced labor while laying off thousands of Americans and discriminating against them in the hiring process.

I urge you to support U.S. wages and job quality with legislation aimed to at stopping immigration increases and enforcing existing immigration laws to reduce the current illegal immigrant population.

P.S. Secure our borders. Stop the influx of immigrants and refugees. Implement the Congressionally-mandated biometric entry/exit system. Evict those here illegally. End chain migration. End birthright citizenship. End the visa lottery. End amnesty. End asylum. End catch-and-release. Make E-Verify mandatory. And more! Illegal immigration is a weapon of mass destruction!
