Those who say illegal immigrants are not taking jobs from Americans need only look at a working class Massachusetts town where hundreds of locals have rushed to apply for jobs at a factory recently raided by immigration officials.
.......Within days of the immigration raid, more than 400 local residents in the depressed factory and fishing town with the state’s highest unemployment rate, applied for the newly vacant jobs. New Bedford’s unemployment rate is nearly double the national rate although its estimated 100,000 residents are more than willing to work. The city’s mayor sees the immigration raid as a positive thing that has created hundreds of new jobs for New Bedford’s qualified and legal residents.
of course the illegal immigrants are doing jobs Americans won't do, at least if you listen to those who fashion themselves as our betters.
