Ben Carson: economists no help understanding the economy

By Dave Leach – This morning I finally had an opportunity to ask Dr. Ben Carson, presidential candidate, “When we need to understand the economic impact of immigration, do you think we would be better off listening to experts who actually have degrees in economics?” I had expected him to answer “well of course”, and […]

God’s judgment on immigration quotas

Leading up to the Great Depression, the mistreatment of Jewish and Latino immigrants was different, but equally serious, and was partly its cause. When we compare the mistreatment of Jewish immigrants with that of Latinos, we see the mistreatments were different, but equal serious triggers A couple of years ago I  noted the correlation between […]

Cruz Clues on Immigration: parsing words

Presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz told an April 2 rally, “there is no stronger advocate for legal immigration than I am.” He told NumbersUSA he would reduce immigration by 3/4.

We can’t get immigration right if we get its economic impact wrong

By Dave Leach – From my emails to Senator Grassley’s staff: Economists – that is, people who majored in economics in college – have a very narrow range of disagreement about the benefits of as much more legal immigration (of people who just want to work hard – who pass criminal background checks) as we […]
