A Message to Republicans

The GOP is missing the most important issue to middle- and working-class Americans.

The GOP message on illegal immigration is almost entirely focused on crime, border security or the compassion issue — how much the people entering the country are suffering. Those are all legitimate points. But Republicans are missing the most important issue to middle- and working-class Americans.

They need to be pounding the economic impact of mass migration. Not that long ago, even liberals understood that massive illegal immigration was bad for the economy. You cannot have a massive welfare state and open borders.

Mass migration undercuts American workers of all races. It puts downward pressure on wages. It contributes to failing schools as schools are required to teach children in dozens of languages, taking valuable time and resources.

It contributes to crime and drug overdoses. It frays the social compact that legal immigrants have to the rule of law. It negatively impacts health care and housing. It drives up local taxes.

Biden is getting his worse numbers on his handling of immigration and the economy. Allowing in millions of unskilled migrants who are untested for COVID and everything else will do nothing but harm American workers and their communities.

Yes, there are good people who want to come to America and who should be able to come to America. That’s what our very generous legal immigration system is for. But there should be zero tolerance for illegal immigration.

The Republican Party must get serious about attacking this problem, exposing the left and making sure more Americans understand the vast damage caused by open borders.
