FAIR Alert: Speaker Boehner Hires Senator McCain's Former Chief of Staff to Run Immigration Policy!
• Granting any legal status to illegal aliens unfairly rewards law-breaking. Any form of legal status, including DREAM Act-style proposals, are just as much of an amnesty as a “path to citizenship,” and will do nothing but encourage more illegal immigration, just like it did after the 1986 amnesty.
• Granting amnesty and increasing the number of guest workers unfairly adds millions of workers to compete for scarce jobs when over 20 million Americans are either unemployed or underemployed.
• Guest workers benefit employers, not the U.S. economy or out-of-work Americans. Rather, guest worker programs lower wages and increases dependence on cheap, foreign labor.
• America needs jobs—not increased immigration! The U.S. already has the most generous immigration system in the world, admitting over 1 million legal immigrants annually, along with bringing in 800,000-900,000 guest workers each year.
