US Immigration : Doubling of legal immigration, permanent solution for DACA | Reconciliation Bill
America will need to double the number of legal immigrants to mitigate both soaring inflation and the current labour shortage, the CEO of the US Chamber of Commerce said.
“We need more workers. We should welcome people who want to come here, go to school, and stay,” CEO Suzanne Clark told reporters during a press conference, reported CNN.
Clark, who is the first woman to hold the position of CEO at the US Chamber of Commerce, said: “That is a place the government could be particularly helpful and we do believe it would be anti-inflationary.”
Increasing immigration would help to ease the supply chain disruptions that lead to an increase in inflation, including the shortage of truck drivers, she added. “If we can alleviate the worker shortage, it might be the fastest thing to do to impact inflation,” Clark was quoted as saying.
Speaking to reporters, she also promised to fight back against what the business group views as antitrust overreach from politicians and regulators.
