I think you have to be careful with immigration. It may seem like the right thing to do, but if you do it poorly it can actually cause lowering of economic stability helping nobody. We can look at education for example and realize that many people coming into our country will not have good jobs therefore they remain in poverty thus the oppurtunity of their children for better education lacks. We know since most schools are funded by local bonds, areas that are wealthy have better schools with better results, then the poor areas. It also makes a difference between 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation on literacy. We can't continue to live in this fantasy world of in america you can move up the ladder. the stats show a different story with the U.S. being last in Social economic mobility between all developed democracies in the world.

If we are to do something.. We need the dept of labor stats to work with immigration for a more balanced approach so we don't have huge amounts of unemployment and medicaid cost, why at the same time finding a better solution to solving grades 1-12 more equally and reducing cost for college (which increased more than healthcare)... I think we will also need to bring jobs back to the U.S....
