Illegal immigrants: Now doing the jobs that Americans can’t get

The standard liberal argument for allowing illegals to remain in the U.S. is that they do the work that Americans wont.  However, in a look at the latest jobs report that came out on Friday, the sad reality that many conservatives feared has now taken place.  Most jobs in the ‘New Economy’ aren’t going to American citizens, but instead to foreign workers.  And by a margin of over 3 to 1.
It began with corporatists like Bill Gates calling for the government to increase H1B visas to allow foreign workers in to fill high-tech positions in computers and engineering.  But just last week a report came out that Disney not only hired foreign workers to replace American workers, but they also ordered these employees to train them so that they could take over their positions at a much lower wage.
