Until there are documented widespread increases in wages in specific fields of say 50%, immigration needs to be shut down.

It's simple. Employers use immigrants to increase the supply of labor and drive down wages.

They've been using this since the 1970s. Take a good look at this graph. See how wages were going up until about 1974. The great fucking of the American worker started after that and continues to this day.

Corporate profits increased every year since 1974 at accelerating rates, but the corporations didn't have to share any of the gains from productivity increases with workers because of immigration and offshoring.

Immigration is one of the big reasons young people can't find decent jobs, and when they do find them they can't make enough to buy a house and raise a family.
