An issue that is starting to get some attention is the impact of illegal immigration on African Americans. While George Bush says illegal immigrants take the "jobs Americans don't want," (or Vicente Fox says that
they are "doing jobs that not even Blacks want to do.") many African Americans are finding that immigrants from Latin Amercian countries are pushing them out of jobs. Not only do illegal immigrants force down wages for everyone, but hiring practices in many of these jobs favor Latino employees and racism is keeping African Americans from these jobs, particularly in the construction business. Blogs such as Modern Tribalist document a "Growing anger among Blacks over Hispanic immigration
." Conservative Black leaders are accusing African American figures such as Jesse Jackson and Maxine Waters of giving into political correctness and not caring about the impact of illegal immigration on the Black population.
