The notion that Americans are too dumb or too lazy to be entrepreneurs is a hard sell with me and many Americans. The constructed statistics used to affirm these non-facts are not given sufficient scrutiny. What is the number of businesses created by non-immigrants? Does anyone know? Does anyone care? Is it relavent to this discussion? Why is conflicting data ignored?
Every job taken by an immigrant displaces an American. The associated social consequences of increasing immigration, both legal and otherwise will stalk us for generations. We should tread lightly and consider all the facts.
