Should there be restrictions on low skilled & unskilled immigrants coming to the United States? Why?
Pfft yeah, that sounds like a great idea - make it EVEN harder for them to gain valuable skills and eventually qualify for citizenship. /sarcasm
No. Most unskilled laborers who come to this country end up doing jobs that people who are already here won't do. We need more people who are willing to do any job available to them, and fewer people whining about not being able to find a job.
My people were immigrants. They worked many jobs, until they had the skills and the dollars to start opening their own businesses. Their children all worked when they got old enough, all graduated high school, and the boys mostly went into military service. Their grandchildren are all college educated professionals.
Yes, there should be a restriction, but it would put a real hurt on farmers, ranchers, and other industries who need unskilled labor. We know that most of our own unemployed would never even consider taking a job like harvesting crops or digging ditches. And why should they when the entitlement train is so easy to climb aboard?
Our government is well aware that most of the unskilled jobs are filled by those who are in this country illegally. Perhaps that is why they pay so little attention to our open borders? If they truly closed the borders we would have crops rotting in the fields and an apple would cost $10 at the supermarket.
I would say that if these unskilled jobs were taken by our own citizens there should be restrictions. But until that happens it would be those who grow our food who would suffer along with we consumers of these products.
And finally, they don't really enforce the immigration laws we have now so would new laws make any difference? My guess is no, nothing would change.
Great question by the way.

England the vast and ever imposing force of culture. No American is here by thought only by movement for expansion of personal gain. Time in and time again so now why try to clog the air with an umbrella? Meaning there is no realistic way to block the whole border. Texas, New Mexico,...

Can less skilled service jobs ever earn as much or more than manufacturing jobs?

I cannot find a group that supports illegal immigration. Yet we cannot stop it. Now that is pathetic. So we must conclude that without saying it, some - many in America support it and do what they can to stop control of it. It would seem that this should be a target for midterm elections. Who does...
