“The Minuteman Project, the self-proclaimed citizen border patrol that has emerged as a vocal
opponent of illegal immigration, arrived in the heart of South Los Angeles on Wednesday hoping to recruit blacks to their cause.
But instead, they were met by protesters — most of them African American — who compared the group to the Ku Klux Klan and urged them to take their campaign elsewhere.”
From the NYT report linked above:
“Even economists striving hardest to find evidence of immigration’s effect on domestic workers are finding that, at most, the surge of illegal immigrants probably had only a small impact on wages of the least-educated Americans — an effect that was likely swamped by all the other things that hit the economy, from the revolution in technology to the erosion of the minimum wage’s buying power.”
