The single most pressing issue that will affect every man, woman and child “directly” is the issue of immigration. Whether you’re in the workplace, retired, or in school, immigration will have a profound influence in almost every aspect of our daily life. And if congress doesn’t pass legislation to cut immigration rates, the United States will continually add one million new legal permanent immigrants per year and within 10-years will have added 10-million new permanent immigrants, a number larger than the combined population of seven major cities, which would come to only 9,890,000.

  • Atlanta (population: 447,000),
  • Los Angeles (3.88 million),
  • Chicago (2.7 million),
  • Boston (645,000),
  • Denver (650,000),
  • Louis (318,000), and
  • Dallas (1.25 million)

America has always been a beacon of freedom for countless generations of immigrants coming from faraway shores with one driving desire, to be a part of the “American Dream”. However at the current rate and under current immigration policy, the U.S. issues “green cards” to about one million new legal permanent residents (LPRs) every single year. And according to the Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. issued 5.25 million green cards in the last five years, for an average of 1.05 million new permanent immigrants annually.

Which of course entitles those “green card” holders to most federal benefits, as well as guaranteed work authorization, add to that the number of illegal aliens currently in the country, and Obama’s amnesty proposals currently being blocked in the courts and one can just imagine the potential crises looming on the horizon to America’s infrastructure.

However even if legislation is passed we may already be past that point of “no return” Sen. Jeff Sessions’ (R-Ala.) explains: “The immigration 'reform' considered by Congress most recently the 2013 Senate 'Gang of Eight' immigration bill would have tripled the number of green cards issued over the next 10 years. Instead of issuing 10 million grants of legal permanent residency, the Gang of Eight proposal would have issued at least 30 million grants of legal permanent residency during the next decade (or more than 3 times the entire population of the state of North Carolina).”
