Automation Makes Immigration Obsolete – It’s time to end an institution that no longer serves Americans

For much of America’s history, a growing population was seen as a necessary policy for a country that was geographically expanding to be a continental nation. Now, however, the social and economic landscape has changed fundamentally because machines are performing many of the jobs that humans once did. As a result, America does not need to import immigrant labor.

But in the Washington corridors of power, our elected leaders have not noticed basic shifts in actual needs for labor, or at least they have not adjusted policy to the new technology.
