Center for Immigration Studies hosted a panel on April 21 discussing the need for present levels of foreign workers in the United States at a time of high unemployment. With 20 million layoffs in just one month, and both white collar and blue collar workers being impacted, U.S. visa programs continue to bring in an historic number of workers impacting job opportunities and wages for American workers.
How many foreign workers are employed in the United States? What type of jobs are they filling? How does it impact wages for Americans? Are these jobs Americans won’t do? Is a moratorium on employment-based immigration a good idea?
