Illegal Immigrants Might Get the Stimulus Jobs!

This from USA Today:

“Tens of thousands of jobs created by the economic stimulus law could end up filled by illegal immigrants, particularly in big states such as California where undocumented workers are heavily represented in construction, experts on both sides of the issue say.

Studies by two conservative think tanks estimate immigrants in the United States illegally could take 300,000 construction jobs, or 15% of the 2 million jobs that new taxpayer-financed projects are predicted to create.

They fault Congress for failing to require that employers certify legal immigration status of workers before hiring by using a Department of Homeland Security program called E-Verify. The program allows employers to check the validity of Social Security numbers provided by new hires. It is available to employers on a voluntary basis.”

You mean the market doesn’t discriminate like politics does? There is very little nationalism in the free market, which is why the free market does not produce people like Hitler or Stalin. So why is it that we care if illegal immigrants get the jobs from the stimulus? Do we just want the stimulus to help Americans? But what happens when the Americans do not want the jobs the illegals are doing? Of course, you are going to say that American cannot compete with lower wage workers. Why not? They all live in the same place if they are trying to get the same jobs.

Take your government waste and cry to someone else.
