Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who favors more visas for high-skilled worker and increased levels of legal immigration, told an audience in his state that he opposes citizenship for 11 million illegal aliens because it would be "profoundly unfair" to millions of immigrants who came here legally.
What about the 20 million Americans who can't find full-time work? Wouldn't it also be profoundly unfair to them to legalize 11 million illegal aliens and allow 7 million of them to keep their payroll jobs in construction, manufacturing, transportation and services?
Why do politicians, when talking about reforming our immigration system that they helped to "break," always do so without explaining how adding more foreign workers to a dismal job market would affect jobless citizens? If the only real solution to our federally created immigration crisis has to be "comprehensive," why are these politicians leaving millions of jobless citizens out of the discussion? Why talk as though America's unemployed don't even exist?
