The video at the link below is a real lesson on Immigration. It is a graphic demonstration that the world's poverty can't be solved even if we had open borders, in fact our immigration system actually harms the economies of poverty stricken nations.
Bottom line, we harm ourselves by allowing illegal immigration.
George Will said tonight on Fox News that we have an impending labor shortage, implying that our illegal immigration is a good thing. I disagree. Today we are encouraging our own citizens not to work or to work less due to all the benefits we give them for not working (Obamacare, welfare, extended unemployment, food stamps, etc.).
Let's cure our current unemployment problem by removing our average 20% tax that is imbedded into the cost of all American produced goods and services so that American labor and business can compete with the rest of the world on a level playing field. This is only one of the benefits of eliminating the income tax (and the abusive IRS) and replacing it with the FairTax (see www.fairtax.org).
Once our unemployment problem is solved we can reduce our benefits to those that choose not to work or to work part time to fill the plethora of new jobs created by enactment of the FairTax. The Reagan generated economic boom lasted so long because the concurrent reduction of welfare benefits increased the labor force participation rate sufficiently that wage inflation, that typically ends an economic boom, was delayed for many years due to the expanding labor force. THEN if we need more workers we can expand our legal worker visa program.

If everyone knew all there is to know, they would not do half the things they do, including myself, therefore I must foregive them, including myself.
