In 2002, Nobel economics laureate Milton Friedman correctly identified the 1990 H-1B visa program as a "government subsidy" because it allows employers access to imported, highly skilled labor at below-market wages.

Billboards Highlight Consequences of Illegal-Alien Smuggling

Published:  

The Border Patrol has begun erecting billboards in Texas to remind commercial truckers that they are gambling with their livelihoods when they haul illegal aliens or drugs. The billboards, which are part of the Texas Hold ‘Em initiative, carry the blunt message: “Smuggle Aliens… Smuggle Drugs… Lose Your Commercial Driver’s License in Texas.” The federal-state initiative, which was first announced in June, uses existing state laws to revoke the commercial driver’s licenses of truck drivers who are convicted of federal charges for smuggling illegal aliens or drugs.

The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) released a new analysis that establishes a causal relationship between high levels of U.S. immigration and significantly higher world-wide CO2 emissions. The reason the study cites is a transfer of population from lower-polluting countries to the U.S, a higher-polluting country.
