Two articles examine immigrant labor, legal and illegal, and how they affect American jobs. The investigation found that while some immigrants have been successful and have built businesses that create thousands of new jobs, others, ill-educated and unskilled, have flooded the labor market and driven down wages and benefits. Among other findings were: the Immigration and Naturalization Services "has no system to ensure that temporary workers return home after their visas expire;" more and more employers import cheap workers for contract jobs rather than hire them as regular employees; a UC Davis professor's study showed that even foreign hi-tech workers in the U.S. "earn an average salary of $7,000 less than U.S. workers."
