Are Illegal Aliens Really Doing the Jobs Americans Won’t Do?

Channel 10 of Phoenix reported what happened when Sheriff Joe Arpaio raided a bunch of Pei Wei Asian Diners and led most of the workers there out in handcuffs because they were illegal aliens.

First, Pei Wei had to close its doors because it didn’t have enough legal workers left.

Second, Pei Wei immediately started recruiting workers from among legal residents.

Finally, and triumphantly, as this newscast video so well shows, unemployed Americans created long lines to take the jobs.

How many times have you heard politicians, academic sophists and too many journalists facilely say that illegal aliens are just doing jobs Americans won’t do? How many times have you heard that from a friend, co-worker or relative?

And how many times have you heard them specifically say that Americans are not going to lower themselves to wash the dishes in the restaurants you frequent?

Well, this video show all kinds of people willing to wash dishes for $8 an hour.  You’ll see Latino Americans say they are willing to do so.  You’ll see White Americans willing to do so.  Young.  Middle aged. One with a masters degree.

Then there’s Utah:

But in Utah, the Republican-led government has just decided that it is better to keep those kinds of Americans unemployed and keep the jobs in the hands of illegal aliens.

Across America, corporate American lobbyists are pushing the “Utah Compact” as the “compassionate” way to deal with immigration.

Bad idea, Republicans in Utah. Conservative voters need to target these pro-illegal immigration RINOs in the 2012 primaries.
