Will the new Labor-Business Accord Produce an Immigration Death Panel?

"The answer is "NO"  — as long as political influence and hackery is kept out of the equation and algorithms digesting state- and employer-fed job openings and hiring data are allowed to produce up-to-the-minute reports of shortage occupations.  But an economy-killing immigration death panel it will assuredly be — a veritable Dr. Caligari's cabinet — if instead a "bureau in a federal executive agency . . . [is] established [merely] to inform Congress and the public about these issues." – Angelo A. Paparelli, Feb. 24, 2013.
