    Default Immigration raid catches 28. New Homeland Security Sec. upset

    ICE rounded up 28 suspected illegal immigrants employed at Yamato Engine Specialists. The next day, hundreds of workers showed up and applied for the now vacant jobs.

    Good job? Not according to Janet Napolitano:
    “She was not happy about it because it’s inconsistent with her position, and the president’s position on these matters,” said the official
    These jobs paid from $9-$28/hr. With rising unemployment, I really don't have a problem with deporting people who are here illegally and letting unemployed citizens take these jobs. I think this story knocks down the "illegal immigrants only take jobs Americans don't want" narrative- hundreds showed up the very next day. Nonetheless, I think the new administration is intent on ending these raids.

    The Obama administration is demanding answers from local immigration-enforcement agents who raided an engine plant in Bellingham, arrested 28 illegal immigrant workers and began the process to deport them.

    The states can still raid, subdue them and hold them long enough for someone else to take the job, then just let them go if the feds won't do anything. That's at least until the administration starts attaching school, police and highway funds to a states compliance, like they do with the war on drugs.

    So is it possible that deporting more illegal immigrants will decrease the unemployment rate of americans?

    You forgot to quote the next paragraph of the NYT article:
    President Obama has promised immigration enforcement that would focus less on illegal workers and more on the employers who rely on them.
    That sounds entirely reasonable to me.

    It is, but speedy deportation of illegals will starve the corrupt of their workforce.

    You actually need both, not a partisan switching between the two.
