Mark,
 
I agree Business wants cheap labor.  Don't forget that people often focus on the jobs no American wants or the jobs where there are no qualified Americans.  My wife works as an engineer for the state and two engineers have to return home because their H1B visas were not renewed.  That is a total abuse of the H1-B program which is supposed to fill critical labor shortages for skilled jobs.  Now includes run-of-mill engineers.  Computer programmers are looking for work at the same time Microsoft hires 30% of its work force from H1-B workers. H1-B quota was something like 160,000 workers /yr!  How many CEO's or top managers are imported on the H1B visa program?  zero.
 
I've had "the Corporation" in my online movie queue from block bbuster for a least two months and it is always checked out at my local B-buster because they just have either 1 or 2 copies.
 
I also was awake in history class in high school where I learned that slavery mainly benefited the south due to its labor intensive cotton and tobacco industries.  The north didn't need slaves as much as the south and put spin on the issue by pretending to take the moral high ground in the debate.
 
There has always been a divide between rich and poor and in globalization the rich again are asserting themselves.  Most people like the price of stuff from China as long as they feel their job is not threatened.  This self-interest approach gives globalization forces the decided upper-hand.  It is a basic divide and conquer of the masses. 
 
History always repeats itself.

Paul, let me explain to you why our government appears to be pushing immigrantion. You do know why they outsource jobs, right? For business, the bottom line is the bottom line, so lower wages mean more profits. Watch the documentary "The Corporation" if you don't understand this. Now try to understand that if lower wages are better for business, no wages at all, or slave labor, is best. That's why Henry Ford and Prescott Bush supported Hitler. That's why many Americans supported slavery. That's why Bush had Bechtel and Halliburton build detention camps all over the U.S., and that's why they are running these Gestapo raids on places where there is a lot of undocumented labor. But don't think for a minute that once they put the immigrants in camps or deport them, you can get those minimum wage backbreaking jobs in the fields or in slaughterhouses. You'd want minimum wage whereas they can use prison labor, particularly from our privatized prisons for less than they'd have to pay somebody in China or India.

And when it comes your turn to be rounded up for slave labor, don't say I didn't try to warn you. Google Pastor Niehmoller--people as ignorant and racist as you existed in Nazi Germany too.

If the White Supremacy movement succeeds in hijacking the 9/11 truth movement, you'll find out too late that you weren't fighting fascism, you were promoting it.
