Maybe it’s more like ‘jobs Americans can’t get to first’

Maybe the truth about those jobs Americans supposedly won’t do is that those Americans who might otherwise do those jobs are being, well, discriminated against in favor of immigrants (both legal and illegal). The Center for Immigration Studies has a report on “The Impact of New Immigrants on Young Native-Born Workers, 2000-2005” available here. It’ hard to do those low-skill jobs Americans won’t do if immigrants are already doing them when you go out low-skill job hunting as a young native-born low-skilled American.

I’m sure it will be dismissed in certain circles as ‘anti-immigrant’, employing typical ad hominem arguments. Not much you can do about that I guess. It's like rain: You know it's coming and there's nothing you can do except grab your umbrella.
