Letter: 'Tired refrain' trotted out again

In his Jan. 28 Viewpoint article, Steve Lagoon trots out the tired refrain that "Millions of American workers are unemployed because illegal immigrants have taken their jobs."

Studies, of course, have shown that this is untrue --and although I know a number of persons who have recently become unemployed, none of them had the kind of jobs that an "illegal immigrant" can do.

However, Mr. Lagoon should be happy to know of reports that, because of our economic situation, many "illegals" have been observed heading back home.

Hopefully things won't get so bad that Americans need to cross the Rio Grande to find jobs in Mexico.
