Economics and Immigration

Michelle Malkin has an interesting blog entry about the economic impact of immigration. Because of the system we have developed here, our economy is stronger than most other nations. When people come here willing to accept below standard wages it drags down everyone. There's only so much adjustment the economy can do when there is a constant influx of cheap labor. Eventually those same employers will see the effects when fewer and fewer people can afford to buy the things that are now underpaying their employees to make. But by that time it may be too late.

What few of these immigrants understand is that by applying the exact same kind of economic responses to our economy as they did in the nation they were leaving, they are dragging our economy down to that level -- creating the very thing they wanted to escape from.
