The Senate’s draft immigration bill will increase the inflow of foreign workers to 1 million people per year, according to government data and news reports.
The 1 million inflow would provide almost one foreign worker for every four Americans who turn 18.
The rate would be high enough to fill up all the extra jobs created during the last five months.
The 1 million inflow would include at least 350,000 people capable of competing for middle-class skilled jobs sought by the 1.8 million Americans who graduate from university each year.
“I believe in a free-market, but this [inflow] will aggravate the problems for [American] graduates,” Richard Vedder, director of the libertarian Center for College Affordability and Productivity, told The Daily Caller.
