    Why The United States Should Treat Immigration like A Job Interview

    During a recent debate between Democratic presidential candidates, Sen. Cory Booker accused former vice president Joe Biden of pitting immigrants against each other when Biden had the temerity to suggest that we give priority to immigrants with PhDs. I suspect, however, that Biden aptly views immigration policy as zero-sum; it’s about choosing the best applicants for a finite number of very valuable positions. That’s certainly my view.

    Charity to foreigners may be all well and good, but it’s not the role of our government to force it on taxpayers. Individuals can decide whether they want to contribute their time or money to organizations such as Doctors Without Borders without government compulsion. Taxpayers don’t need lay priests mandating what amounts to de facto secular international tithing.

    We Must End ‘Chain Migration’ and the Diversity Lottery
    It follows that we should abandon chain migration (also known as family reunification) as well as the diversity visa lottery. Under chain migration, those who already immigrated to the United States can put their family members ahead of others seeking entrance. The last in the door shouldn’t get to man the gate.

    The diversity visa lottery is even more baffling. Its entire premise is based on the notion that we need certain levels of immigrants based on national origin—which is both ridiculous and racist. We should judge immigrants on the factors described above, not in which country they happened to be born.
    ...
    Ultimately, even refugee considerations should inevitably be limited by practical realities. To paraphrase Justice Jackson: our freedom-loving values aren’t a suicide pact

    Party of “ family value” don’t want legal immigrant to bring their spouse, father, mother or sister to USA. I guess party of “ family value” don’t see these legal immigrants as human. They see them as 3/5 of human, so family value doesn’t apply here.

    “Hi, so you’ve explained that you were tortured in your home country and face summary execution if you return, but I just need to ask: What would you consider your biggest weaknesses and could you give me an example of a situation where you’ve used your skills to increase profitability?”

    Your freedom loving values aren't a suicide pact?
    How is that relevant in a discussion about immigrants but dismissable when discussing fun control?

    Nonsense

    How about we start with treating our elections like a job interview?

    Good plan.

    ID is required for job interviews. Often, citizenship status as well.

    Candidates already have to present that, after all its them interviewing to work for us not the other way around.

    In our town, the immigrants are the ones installing rooves on homes at 7 a.m. in the broiling heat. Working in chicken plants and mattress factories.

    Anyone who wouldn't hire these young hard workers who weren't born with silver spoons in their mouths is crazy.

    End of discussion.

    The Associated Press is reporting that quite a few 'Americans' are showing up to replace the lost illegal workers.
    After Mississippi ICE raids, job fair draws hopeful workers

    Most were black and spoke with accents from the American South.​

    A number of other news outlets are reporting similar stories.

    Sounds like a good opportunity for a union.
