Working for logical immigation reform based on a stable population, a recognition of the finite nature of our natural resources and the adverse impact of continued growth on our quality of life, standard of living, national interest, character, language, sovereignty and the rule of law. Pushing back and countering the disloyal elements in American society and the anti-American rhetoric of the leftwing illegal alien lobbies. In a debate, when your opponents turn to name calling, it's a good sign you've already won.

Unskilled Labor Shortage???
Vernon M. Briggs Jr., professor emeritus at the School of Industrial and Labor Relations at Cornell University, says: "It's hard to make any argument that there is a great shortage of unskilled workers, when the highest unemployment rates in the United States are held by those who have the lowest level of education. ... This labor market is in surplus, and that's the problem. Why income levels at the bottom don't go up, wages at the bottom don't go up, why income distribution in this country is [becoming] increasingly skewed, heading toward greater inequality. ... We all know that if undocumented workers were pouring into the professional, elite ranks of this country, if they were coming into the professor ranks or the lawyer ranks or the doctors' ranks or the business executive ranks, this issue would have been solved a long time ago."
