Everyone knows that illegal immigration is a problem in this country. But surprisingly, so can legal immigration.

Not since Pat Buchannon in 1996 has a serious presidential candidate run on the platform of immigration quotas. Surprisingly, this was once a bipartisan cause. Right wing icon Calvin Coolidge and Liberal superstar FDR both imposed immigration quotas of one kind or another.
Thankfully, Senator Rick Santorum has brought up this idea recently. Read more about it here: http://theweek.com/article/index/267673/why-rick-santorum-is-right-to-target-legal-immigration
