    What BOTH parties are NOT talking about is ending: NAFTA (N. American Free Trade Agreement), CAFTA (Central American Free Trade Agreement), GATT (General Agreement on Tarrifs and Trade) and the WTO (World Trade Organization).

    NOR ending all tax breaks for all businesses who: Offshore, outsource and hire Visa workers and ILLEGAL ALIENS and sending these people home.

    NOR forcing employers to use E-VERIFY and heavily penalize any employer of ILLEGAL ALIENS.

    Finally: Place an IMMIGRATION MORATORIOUM. How can we already have so many unemployed or underemployed LEGAL CITIZENS and still pass out Green Cards like candy and invite more immigrants in?

    I’ll tell you why we haven’t put a cap on immigration. The businesses are greedy and want to drive down wages.
