Volpe wants to boost immigration to 300K annually (from current 220K). This is good news. We aren't replacing the population and the new blood will be focussed on people who want to fill the jobs that are less attractive to the current workforce. I have worked with immigrants and their kids my whole life and they are almost universally hard-working conscientious people who are a net benefit and want to be a part of their new society. Now what about those refugee claimants?
