True Immigration Reform: Reduce Immigration Quota to 100,000 Per Annum sign now

Well over 15 million Americans are unemployed, and millions more struggle to stay afloat and solvent in these challenging times. Social service budgets are being reduced by the billions of dollars, and average competition for scarce jobs hovers between five and six persons. The time has come for a rational reduction of the burdensome immigration quota in face of these economic threats to American well-being.

While the official unemployment rate hovers in the mid nine percent range, the more accurate figure rises to the mid teens. Countless American workers, plagued by pessimism and poor economic realities, simply cease looking for work.

During these times that try our national resolve and spirit, it is incumbent both of Congress and the People to pursue difficult choices for the good of the whole country. Currently, despite the shocking unemployment rate and soaring national debt, over one million new immigrants (primarily unskilled workers) annually are granted entrance to our borders. This amount is staggering and unacceptable. This is primarily reprehensible because this drastically boosts competition for jobs that Americans will work. For the good of the American worker, we demand that Congress pass an immigration quota of 100,000 approved applicants per annum, and to tie any future quota increases to lowered and projected unemployment rates.

Rational immigration reform is an area in which both progressives and conservatives can foster common cause. As United States representatives, you swore a sacred oath or affirmation to protect the citizens of this great Republic; one constitutional mandate of government is to "promote the general welfare" of the People, and their economic well-being is key to this unique social contract.

Though calling for a vast reduction in legal immigration quotas, we still must adhere to our moral conscience in the case of refugees. We believe that programs focused on humanitarian asylum should be increased to meet the demand of innocent people seeking safe haven from terrifying social realities in their homelands. Programs should be geared towards the economic self-reliance of these individuals, who could acquire new skills and utilize them in the future to help rebuild their homelands.

We, the undersigned, beseech you to put the interests of the diverse American public first. Amnesty and mass immigration have never worked to the benefit of the People, as made exceedingly apparent by the legacy of President Reagan's amnesty of the 1980s.

It is time to change course.
