I keep wondering if American citizens really will not work at certain kinds of jobs thereby requiring the influx of immigrants (mostly illegal) to accomplish those tasks. Maybe people won’t work because they can live fairly well using Government assistance programs, and/or because they are just unwilling to work at anything at all.
It appears that there are going to be a lot of immigrants staying (having arrived illegally) or coming in the future if the actions of the Government speak to the issue.
We are told that the current Administration is looking for a vendor to supply five (5) million cards a year with the contract calling for 34 million in the next five years. I am wondering if there are really going to be 34 million new jobs, unwanted by American citizens, available in the next five years? We certainly don’t want to encourage immigrants to come if there are no jobs for them, right?
The President has said he will act if Congress does not. There is some question about his authority to do so. But, a note from AP helps to clear up the question:
The president does not have the legal authority to unilaterally offer immigrants in the country illegally green cards or any other permanent immigration status. But administration officials have said the president can authorize protection from deportation for immigrants on a case-by-case basis, such as with the DACA program, and issue work permits.

It seems to me the President is not going to have much time to play golf if he is doing a case-by-case study of each individual who is going to receive one of these five million cards – let’s see that is approximately 13,698 cases per day – which will have to be approved by him, and if I understand “case-by-case” that means studying each individual case “one at a time.” (But I repeat myself.) Maybe we need to consider adding another layer of bureaucracy to help him with the load. Maybe. . .a “green card” Czar. The man needs his golf.
Just saying. . . .
