Candidate Rick Santorum has an Economic Freedom Agenda on his website, you can see it here
. The Economic Freedom Agenda has eight sections. The final section is entitled "Stop the Surge of Both Illegal and Legal Immigration".
It includes four specific proposals:
- Seal the Mexican border with an American-made wall.
- Rescind the Obama-Biden measures that expand and encourage illegal immigration.
- Reduce legal immigration by 25% to ensure that Americans get the first shot at new jobs and higher wages.
- Veto any legislation aimed at creating amnesty.
These are all good proposals. Of course, we really need a much bigger reduction in legal immigration than 25%, but to most candidates, the very idea of cutting legal immigration is taboo.
Kudos to Rick Santorum for including immigration in his economic plan, because it's a critical factor. And kudos to Santorum for standing up for American workers.
