Abortion and Illegal Immigration?
One argument in favor of allowing illegal immigrants to remain in the U.S. is the fact that so many of them are filling the jobs that “Americans aren’t doing.” A new report to a legislative panel in Missouri on illegal immigration suggests that part of the reason there are so many unfulfilled jobs in America has to do with abortion. … Read More
