Immigrant arrests up 33 percent since Trump inauguration ......
Arrests of immigrants have jumped by nearly one-third since President Donald Trump took office, compared to the same period a year ago. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement unit of the Department of Homeland Security arrested 21,362 allegedly undocumented immigrants from January 20 through mid-March, according to statistics released to the Washington Post, compared to 16,104 in the same period of 2016.
The US should think long
and hard about the high number of Latino immigrants.
The principal beneficiaries of our current immigration
policy are affluent Americans who hire immigrants at substandard wages for
low-end work. Harvard economist George Borjas estimates that American workers
lose $190 billion annually in depressed wages caused by the constant flooding
of the labor market at the low-wage end.
