What U.S. immigration policy has to do with wages and labor shortages
think that the idea that if we don’t get immigrants in then this will push wages up is not really supported by the recent experience in the labor market in the U.S. There is a problem of wage growth, especially for low-skilled workers in the sense that wages have not grown very much in the last two decades. But the reason for that, economists argue, are more [about] the changing nature of jobs — mechanization, computerization [and] offshoring, rather than the local force of demand and supply.

We now see the Supreme Court joining this administration in its effort to tear apart immigrant families.
