So what’s happened in the weeks since the Department of Homeland Security set up an aggressive plan to go after employers of illegal immigrants? The one that would send out “no match” letters for every discrepancy between an employee and a Social Security number, and set high civil and criminal penalties for employers? A lot of legal wrangling, and not a lot else.
My favorite part of this article is the following compassionate comment on immigration:
While immigration makes the overall economy larger, study, after study, after study has shown that immigration has virturally no economic benefit for the receiving population. Factoring in externalities like traffic, pollution, stress on infrastructure, immigration is an economic negative for the general, receiving population. Moreover, it increases income inequality.
