Important Immigration Policy Improvements Are Stalled
August 18, 2022
Article by Jeffrey Price
The well-respected magazine, The Economist, in its July 30th issue weighed in on immigration, but not in a way that one might expect. Specifically, it had a lot to say about America’s need for more immigrants to address the widespread problem of unfilled jobs ranging from resort workers to high-tech engineers. Sadly, the magazine article points out that the never-ending crisis over how to manage the southern border blocks any advance movements toward a sensible reform of which and how many applicants can enter into the US. Much food for thought. (Note: Former president George W. Bush was the last Republican who took on this particular issue.)
