The young black in Los Angeles and other cities that anti-illegal immigration opponents cite as proof that illegal immigration is ruinous for the economy and the urban poor may or may not have lost out in his job hunt to an illegal immigrant.
The article presents the issue - correctly - from the standpoint of the employer discriminating against the young black man, then somehow "jumps the fence" to blame "illegal immigration". No undocumented worker took the black man's job. The _employer_ prevented that young man from working. The employer breaks the law by hiring the undocumented worker. The employer breaks labor laws in the way that they hire and employ these workers.
There is no "illegal immigration" problem. There is an ILLEGAL EMPLOYMENT problem!
