That wave of immigration peaked with the Great Depression. As we know immigration came to almost a complete halt and laws were passed to limit immigration when the depression hit because people realized that it is foolish to increase the amount of labor when there are not enough jobs for the existing labor base. Today as we suffer through the Great Recession rather than learn from history we ignore it and do the opposite by encouraging even more immigration to lower wages and decrease the quality of life for all.
Times of mass immigration have been historically followed by economic slow downs. Up until now immigration levels have been decreased to stabilize the economy and it has always worked.
