Washington Post Writer: Solve Inflation With More Immigration

•, Tyler Durden

Catherine Rampell wrote a piece titled that "Democrats are missing the bigger immigration issue," noting that "Democrats are terrified that a coming border surge might tank their midterm chances."

She then went on to suggest that problems will occur not with "too many immigrants" but rather "too few."

Rampell claims, without any evidence or authority, that inflation will start to recede if there are more migrants "who can fill critical labor-market shortages."

She writes, "The United States is experiencing inflationary levels not seen in four decades. Americans are unhappy, and they are more than five times as likely to cite "inflation," "cost of living" or the economy in general than immigration as the nation's biggest problem. These economic concerns are, however, rooted at least partly in immigration policy."
