Reducing Immigration

Repealing all bad Immigration law passed since the 1950s should reverse all changes that opened immigration to those we don’t need to fill critical jobs.  We need policies that will enable those we do need to fill critical jobs to apply.


A good start would be to look at the immigration policies we had in 1950.  We should also repeal all laws that allow refugees to resettle in the US and quit the UN Refugee program.

The US Labor Participation rate is 63%. That means that 37% of all working-age US citizens are unemployed.  In addition, we have millions of US citizens who are working minimum wage jobs. The US median household income is $58,714. 

Ending US welfare for illegal immigrants and refugees will enable us to end further unwanted migration and may send some migrants home.  They are currently costing the US taxpayer $384 billion a year.

Congress needs to move ahead to pass immigration reform to reset immigration policies back to what we had in the 1950s. The immigration laws and rulings that liberalized immigration need to be repealed.  What should be left is a policy that returns the US to a meritocracy rather than a welfare state.
