At Breitbart by Matthew Boyle --
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) is introducing legislation on Tuesday with
Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) designed to cut the level of immigration into
the United States in half, with the express intent of refocusing the
nation’s immigration policy onto helping American workers instead of
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News on Tuesday morning,
Cotton explained that the legislation will cut the number of green cards
given out every year from about a million a year down to about half a
million a year—all designed to help the forgotten American worker who
has gotten a “raw deal” thanks to overflowing immigration levels into
the United States in recent years—causing wages to decline and job
prospects to stagnate.
“Over several decades, we’ve on the one hand seen people who work on
their feet and work with their hands see their wages fall—20 percent if
you don’t have a high school degree, 2 percent if you have a high school
degree,” Cotton told Breitbart News.
