Should there be a temporary freeze on immigration to the United States until socioeconomic problems
such as high unemployment & other related ills are remedied? Also, in the future, should America put into practice only allowing immigrants who have a high education & skillset, not letting just anyone immigrate?
I think immigration should be restricted to poor and needy people. Most skilled/educated immigrants come here to exploit opportunities. Few of them have any interest in becoming Americans and should not be allowed to enter. Poor and needy people will come here and assimilate as well as fill depleted low end job sectors. But we must stop coddling them with entitlements, educational privileges and bilingual social institutions.
We need the poor Guatemalan immigrant to work the orchards, earn his residency then take a job as a drywall installer and move up from there. We do not need a privileged, educated Swede to come here and take a high paying job from an American when he or she has no interest in becoming an American.

Yes there needs to be a freeze on immigration until we are back down to 5% REAL unemployment. When you have 10% of adults unemployed (including those who shifted to SSDI after long term unemployment ran out) and another 10% unwillingly working only part time, yes, no more immigrants until we have essentially full employment.
Regarding future immigration, we should give preference for those who served us overseas - like the Arabic speaking translators we essentially abandoned in Syria and Iraq who risked their lives helping our soldiers. In that regard, loyalty should trump high skill.
I do say no to open doors to unskilled labor. Illegal aliens inflate the ranks of the unskilled and demonstrably pulled down wages for the working class, with black men displaced in the workforce by Hispanic men for multiple reasons as a result of mass immigration (legal and illegal) from Mexico and Central America.

Family separation is a big new political talking point , Some family separations are permanent however . Now Molly Tibbetts was separated permanently from her family , I wonder when this new phenomena of "selective outrage" will actually be for a good cause?
