Last night, Comedy Central’s The Daily Show With Jon Stewart poked fun at the border “vigilante” group, the Minutemen Project. Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi shed light on the powerful misnomer that immigrants take American jobs and also highlighted the extent that extremists like the Minutemen and other restrictionists will go to protect their misinformed notion that immigration is bad for America.
Immigration has a positive effect on the local economies where immigrants live. When immigrants come they bring economic vitality and help sustain industries. The Daily Show’s guests are barking up the wrong tree when they blame immigrant workers for the situation of workers in the U.S.
