Schools are closed. Millions of Americans are out of work. Unemployment may reach 20 percent.
Solution? More immigration!
That’s a sarcastic tagline I often use on Twitter, but in this case it’s literally what some people are pushing.
For instance, Bloomberg reported on Friday on that:
The National Pork Producers Council put in a request to members of Congress this week for more visas through the country’s guest-worker program, citing school closures that are preventing employees from going to work.
At first I thought this was satire, but it seems to be real. The request is so outrageous that even the labor union, whose parent organizations switched sides and joined the anti-borders movement in the ’90s, are complaining about it.
