Aren't those covered by Obama's DREAM Act already working? Will hundreds of thousands of work permits matter?

The version of the anti-American DREAM Act that Obama declared by executive fiat yesterday would give work permits to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens; a range that's been mentioned is 800,000 to 1,400,000.

One of the talking points for Obama's action is that the hundreds of thousands of work permits won't matter because those who'd get work permits will already be working.

Whenever you see anyone using that talking point, send them to the immigration wage floor page; it explains in detail why all those newly-legalized workers will have a highly negative impact on American workers.
