Immigration Works

The situation, in a nutshell.

My sentiments on immigration are inscribed at the foot of the Statue of Liberty: “. . . Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore, Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

These words of poet Emma Lazarus served as the welcome mat for tens of millions seeking liberty and opportunity in America — legally. Being a relatively land-rich and labor-scarce nation, immigration has always been good for our country. Plus, for most of our history, there was a guarantee that immigrants would come here to work. The alternative was starvation.

With today’s welfare state, there’s no such guarantee. People can come here, not work and not starve because the welfare state guarantees that they can live off the rest of us.
