Post a New Question

According to Wikipedia, "the problems which are purportedly caused by immigrants equally exist amongst native-born populations as well, and that politicians often use immigration as a convenient scapegoat to distract the public from real social, political and economic problems."

I was wondering if someone could please give me an example of this? Thanks!

    Immigrants have frequently been accused of taking jobs from "real" Americans. Politicians who oppose immigrants often use this as a reason. The problem with this argument is that many immigrants work very hard for minimum (or lower) wage that doesn't attract most other workers.

    Is there a specific reason why these politicians like to use immigrants as a scapegoat?
