I am a retired old white guy. I know what makes an economy function. PEOPLE. people consume stuff and this generates sales for business and taxes for governments. We are missing about 60 million U.S. citizens who could have been consumers and taxpayers but they were aborted before they ever had a chance. The only way Social Security and Medicare will survive is to import more consumers and more taxpayers. It does not matter if they are legal immigrants, temporary work visas or illegal immigrants they all will consume. They only way they will pay taxes is if we issue them all the paperwork they need to work and earn legally. Politicians in Wash. D.C. know these facts. There is about $4.4 Trillion of Federal Budget which will be spent by the U.S. Government. Businesses invest a lot of money getting politicians elected to assure a return that investment. In return the politicians vote to spend budgeted money on stuff the businesses that get them elected and re-elected and re-re-elected. Thus the war between two political parties who want job security for their politicians.
