WSJ and SEIU complain about immigration audits, show no concern for American workers (Miriam Jordan, Harvard Maintenance, Minnesota) - 03/15/11

Needless to say, any form of immigration enforcement doesn't sit well with those who seek to profit or enable others to profit from cheap illegal labor.

Miriam Jordan of the Wall Street Journal offers "U.S. Workers Crowding Out Immigrant Laborers" (link). The great majority of Americans prefer that, when a job is available, it goes to an American rather than a foreign citizen, whether legal immigrant or illegal alien. However, the brains of neither the profits-at-any-cost types nor many "liberals" aren't wired that way; both groups would gladly take things away from U.S. citizens in order to give them to illegal aliens. Both groups think Americans are too fat and happy; the WSJ types are thinking only of their profits; and, the "liberals" are...
