Want to replace Alex Wagner on MSNBC? (Now, immigration, deferred action, DACA)

I'm seeking a replacement for MSNBC host Alex Wagner of the "NOW with Alex Wagner" show. Could it be you? If you've got what it takes to discuss politics on the national stage, leave a link to your audition tape in comments or as a reply to the video below!

There's just one catch: you have to be in Obama's new Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. That's his version of the anti-American DREAM Act.

The DACA program will grant work permits to up to 1.8 million illegal aliens, adding a very large number of new legal workers to a very weak job market.

Obama's program will harm struggling American workers who'll face increased competition for scarce jobs, and most of those harmed are Democrats. It will affect a wider range of workers than illegal immigration usually impacts. Illegal aliens can only do certain types of jobs. But when they're in Obama's program they won't be illegal aliens anymore, they'll be legal workers and able to do a much wider range of jobs: any job for which they're qualified.

For instance, Alex Wagner's job.

Those like Alex Wagner are gleeful about Obama increasing competition for those who work as bank tellers, waitresses, or construction workers. The elites wouldn't be so gleeful if they were the ones facing increased competition.

So, if you've got what it takes, leave your audition below!

After replacing Alex Wagner with a willing worker, we can move on to replacing the others on the panel:

* Sam Stein of the Huffington Post
* Patricia Murphy of the Daily Beast
* Hugo Lindgren (New York Times Magazine Editor)
* Eric Bates (Rolling Stone Executive Editor)

Note: This competition isn't sponsored by or affiliated with MSNBC or any other company. But, like any other company, MSNBC appreciates increased competition for jobs so they can get the lowest-priced qualified labor. Let's help them out.
