Tom Cotton supports immigration restriction
Republican Senator Tom Cotton from Arkansas writes an op-ed in the New York Times supporting immigration restriction.
We have an immigration policy today that few Americans support or voted for. It’s allowed legal and illegal immigration at levels divorced from what our economy needs. That has undermined the earning power of those Americans least able to afford it.
But in this election, Americans finally demanded an end to this unthinking immigration system. President-elect Trump and Congress should take that mandate and act on it promptly in the new year.
This op-ed is good news, and means that there may be support in Congress for Trump’s immigration policy, and that even includes reducing legal immigration.
