Faulty Immigration Assumptions

The debate over immigration reform is underway. Bob Lonsberry believes that ultimately nothing will change (see here). Luther at HazZzMat is upset that many of the arguments on the issue are based on faulty assumptions. He wants to debunk the assertion that illegals work jobs that Americans refuse to take. He cites this study that shows that illegal immigration is actually hurting the least educated of our country’s natives (and the children that depend on them) the most.

I am fully in favor of having a rigorous debate on the best way to handle immigration issues. But I agree with Luther that the debate should be based on true facts rather than faulty assumptions.
