    We need to really think about this issue and stop listening to politicians and media talking heads. I posted before that the attraction for the elites is low labor costs and votes.

    Let's look at how immigration affects us:

    #1. They suppress wages. Simple supply and demand. If I can find an employee who can do the same job you are doing for less, guess what...

    #2. Due to the lack of assimilation, specifically language wise, we are disadvantaged because we can't compete for jobs that require bilingual employees. This is already a fact of live in cities with large population of Hispanics, and will soon come to a city near you.

    You may say, duh. well learn spanish than. I say duh, how about they learn english than. Moreover those most affected are first time job hunters, laborers, High Schoolers

    This is why we need to support common sense immigration policies that do NOT put us at a disadvantage. After all, our TAX $$ are used either way to impliment policies that hurt us or help us.

    Unfortunately both parties seem to be controlled by lobbyists on this issue. So any candidate who is serious about this will have to fight congress. I'm keeping my eyes peeled. I'm not just listening to words but I'm also paying attention to personality, character. Because this will cause without a doubt a huge fight.

    What I can tell you is that I ruled out Hillary Clinton & Jeb Bush.

    Personally I like Dr. Ben Carson a lot so far!
