Racist, Nativist Demand To Patrol Border Bears First Poisonous Fruit?

This has been going on for a while but Mickey Kaus has a good round-up. Many illegal immigrants are self-deporting back to their home (legal) countries for one reason or another.

Most don't want to credit new enforcement toughness-- too many on both the left and right are ideologically committed to the idea that enforcement can't work (or can't be allowed to work), and that only a Comprehensive Piece of Shit Amnesty can solve this problem -- but there seems to be something going on that can't be explained only by the loss of construction jobs.

As an aside, my dad worked in construction. What is alarming about runaway illegal immigration is that so many jobs formerly thought to be safe for, you know, legal American workers, are now largely filled by illegal immigrants. I used to work as a busboy in high school; I doubt there are too many restaurants employing American-born busboys any longer.

It really seems rather un-American to decide that lower-class workers are just too damn greedy and too darn well-paid and that jobs that in the past would go to them will instead go to foreign-born illegal migrants. Outsourcing put a lot of formerly American jobs in foreign countries. Now even the jobs that must be done here and can't be outsourced are being filled by foreign workers anyway through connived nonenforcement of our laws -- insourcing, if you will.
