    was an article I read sometime ago about the fact that job creation hasn't kept up with population growth. When one considers that most of the US pop.growth comes from immigration, then the solution is simple. Slow immigration (legal and illegal) till job creation out paces it and we need more labor. Of course the powers that be on both sides of the aisle, really don't want the over abundance of labor to cease and wages to rise. Their corporate masters would cut them off. It's the same reason we have not had a minimum wage increase. I posted a comment along time ago about the fact that illegal immigration doesn't affect the educated and wealthy. They are above it all. They do not have to compete for jobs, do not have their wages depressed, their children do not have to compete with illegal immigrant children for school resources and of course they never have them living in their neighborhoods. Truman said it best: "It's a recession when your neighbor loses his job, it's a depression when you lose yours"  I suspect many  would change their position, if illegal immigration was directly affecting them in a negative way.
