What if the US made a 10 year NO Immigration policy for anyone trying to immigrate in the US?

Would it help or no?

    First, the US must eliminate all illegal aliens - ALL persons not legally present, whether visa overstayers, visa violators, entry without inspection, etc, must depart or be deported with permanent bar to reentry. Border protections must be seriously beefed up, and temporary visa applicants scrutinized more carefully. Then revamp immigration laws, or reduce immigration visa numbers, or suspend all immigration for a set time-period. Otherwise, illegal immigration will skyrocket even further.

    yes.... and actually make them to 10 years hard labor before deporting the ones caught before they are deported and then add 10 year no immigration for them.

    It would give our economy a chance to absorb the millions of immigrants that we have already been letting for the benefit of the 1%.

    The corporate interests that own the country would flip out as most of them thrive on underpaying foreign labor (both legal and illegal).

    The thought is a good one, but 10 years is a bit long. Perhaps a 5 year ban would be a better place to start.

    No. It would hurt. A lot. The U.S. might not even survive.

    Nearly the entire U.S. food supply comes from farms that depend on immigrant labor to produce the food that keeps the country fed. (A small amount is imported from other countries.) The U.S. has no realistic plan for how to feed its citizens if no one immigrates to the U.S. for even just a few years.

      Immigrants do NOT work in agriculture. Most foreign workers on agricultural labor visas abandon their employers within days of arrival. A lot more agricultural work can be mechanized. There is little genuine need for farm labor. And (legal) immigration is NOT doing the job anyway.

    It would not help in dealing with the existing laws that have created the problem in any way. Only Congress can do that.

    It’s reciprocal. It would mean that others would prevent Americans from moving to their countries. That would suck for business and trade.

    Our problem is with illegal immigration.  90% of the legal immigrants are for family reunification.
