The Washington Post has quoted the AG pick as saying:
“Legal immigration is the primary source of low-wage immigration into the United States,” Sessions argued in a 2015 Washington Post op-ed. “… What we need now is immigration moderation : slowing the pace of new arrivals so that wages can rise, welfare rolls can shrink and the forces of assimilation can knit us all more closely together.”
I want to dislike this guy and there is much in his history to dislike but I found this quote thought provoking.
Interesting as I am a legal immigrant as is Herself and my two children. My children and I are proud, passionate and grateful to be citizens of this wonderful country and yet I have wondered over the past decade at the prudence of a very liberal immigration policy.
