Washington Post admits that immigrants lower wages
You know how the MSM has been telling us for years that immigrants don’t lower wages?
In fact, just three days ago in an article criticizing Trump’s speech to Congress, The Washington Post repeated that immigrants have “little to no negative effects on overall wages and employment of native-born workers in the longer term.”
But today, in an article about the problems of immigrants returning to Mexico after being deported, the Post matter-of-factly states:
More returnees means lower wages for everybody in blue-collar industries such as construction and automobile manufacturing, where competition for jobs is likely to increase, economists say.
Funny how the normal laws of economics work in Mexico (more people competing for jobs means lower wages), but the same laws don’t work in the United States. Because of magic American exceptionalist soil or something?
