SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The election and the campaigns were dominated by concerns about the state of the economy. Now that the election has ended, President Obama and the new Congress must deal with a host of issues including gaining control of immigration, according to Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS).
"Unfortunately, neither the candidates nor the media drew attention to the deleterious impact that high immigration levels have on American workers," said Marilyn DeYoung, Chairman of the Board of CAPS. "There is no difference between outsourcing, sending American jobs overseas, and 'insourcing,' bringing in foreign workers to take American jobs."
While Americans reelected Obama based on their preference for his economic policies, they do not embrace his plans for amnesty. Furthermore, they want to see laws enforced at the workplace through mandatory usage of the E-verify program.
"True immigration reform means securing our borders and reducing immigration to reasonable levels that protect American workers. In 1996, Barbara Jordan and the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform called for lower levels of legal immigration and tough measures against illegal immigration. It made sense then; it makes sense now," stated DeYoung, who served on the President's Commission on Population Growth and the American Future in 1970.SOURCE Californians for Population Stabilization
