Most immigrants come to our country seeking employment and a better life for their families. Our economy depends on their labor, but at the same time the immigration quotas for their visas are far below the demand for the work they are willing to do. Over the years, many employers have benefited from these low immigration quotas. With a large number of undocumented immigrants, they have a large supply of cheap labor. We read so much about how the immigrants have come here illegally, but little has been said about how many employers have broken the law by hiring and paying them below the minimum wage and keeping them in unsafe working conditions.
It's imperative that immigration reform is passed soon, so all parties can live and work within the law.
