Glen’s view on immigration reflects his view on capitalism. Glen wants the business owner/investor to make as much as possible with cheap labor.
The other side of the coin in capitalism is that if labor is in demand then wages should go up in response. Those Americans that need a job will take a job if the salary provides some profit; the history of Pittsburgh proves that. Open borders circumvents the supply/demand of capitalism that keeps economies in balance. Mr. Root’s comment, “don’t bet against America”, applies to labor as well as business.
