Immigration was one topic mentioned by President George Bush in his State of the Union Speech Tuesday night--"We need to resolve the status of illegal immigrants who are already in this country. Without animosity and without amnesty." But can that be done when tempers run so high on both sides of the issue?
One position is that illegal immigrants are good for American businesses. But is that true? Dan Stein is from FAIR--Federation for American Immigration Reform. Juan Jose Guitierrez is from Latino Movement USA. Both were on "Squawk Box" to talk about it.
Stein says absolutely not--and that America can't stand this flood of illegal immigrants and that President Bush needs to enforce laws--including against companies hiring illegals. He says the illegals are driving down wages. He says 30 years ago wages in meat packing plants were 30% above manufacturing wages--but are now 15% below manufacturing wages.
