White House Says More Immigrants Will Help Economic Growth

(RightWing.org) – The US is being swamped by a tidal wave of illegal immigrants. And most Americans are unhappy with how our borders are being controlled. But the Biden Administration refuses to listen. Now officials are claiming we need more immigration, not less.

A March 20 report by President Biden’s Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) claims if the US wants to keep growing its economy, we have to divert taxpayer dollars to childcare and increase the number of immigrants coming into the country. CEA chair Cecilia Rouse claims the US faces a labor crisis and needs to solve it by bringing in more people. In the small print, the report revealed the real agenda — “legalizing the status” of an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants currently in the country.

There are valid points in the report — the US workforce is potentially shrinking as birthrates fall — but there are also other solutions. If “declining workforce participation” is really a problem, the sensible thing to do is get those Americans back into work instead of paying them welfare and then letting immigrants in to do their jobs. The CEA does have suggestions for getting people back to work, but coincidentally they all seem to fit with Biden’s left-wing agenda — taxpayer-funded childcare, opening jobs to convicted felons and getting more workers to join unions, for example. And, of course, the report keeps going back to how we need more immigrants.

The problem is Americans don’t want more immigrants. A January poll showed that voters are the unhappiest they’ve been about immigration in over ten years. Only 28% of respondents are satisfied with Biden’s immigration policy, while 71% of Republicans and 19% of Democrats think it’s too high. It looks like, yet again, Biden is aiming policies at his party’s left-wing base and ignoring what’s best for the country.
