IMMIGRATION AND YOUR WALLET is Now Available
by BWW News Desk - Oct 18, 2016

One of the hottest topics of this election cycle, immigration reform, is foremost on the minds of voters as they head to the polls in three weeks. While both major presidential candidates have offered their campaign proposals, author David Stone summarizes his common-sense solution to this never-ending problem. Stone, an entrepreneur who resides in a sketchy neighborhood in a Sanctuary City, urges Americans to consider their wallets when pulling the lever on November 8. 'If you are a member of the Wage Earning Class - folks who work for a living and receive a paycheck for all of your efforts - not only are you supporting yourself and your family, you are also supporting a whole lot of other people without your consent,' explains Stone. Author Stone explains that by implementing sound policy proposals to curb immigration, including the following: · Holding employers responsible for the actual costs of their workers, instead of having the taxpayers pick up the tab · Implementing an annual deadline for anyone (legal or not) collecting benefits to ensure that they meet the criteria for receiving them · Changing the global message to let would-be illegals that they are not welcome in the US if they simply seek to live off public assistance. 'The Solution is actually quite simple, just stop giving them money, your money,' writes Stone. 'We have to assign the responsibility for cost to the entity where it actually belongs. We can find that answer by looking at the past. If we eliminate the magnet that draws them here they will be less likely to come here in the first place.' IMMIGRATION & YOUR WALLET is available for instant download here at Amazon.com for $0.99 and can be read on any device. To learn more about IMMIGRATION & YOUR WALLET, please visit www.IMMIGRATIONandYOURWALLET.com. To schedule an interview with David Stone, please call (703) 850-3533.
