The Washington Post this morning carries a propaganda blast from the White House: Immigration Lifts Wages, Report Says By Lori Montgomery June 21 2007 (Access requires registration)

It says of immigration:

there are "small negative effects" on the earnings of the least-skilled Americans

so that doesn’t matter, does it?

This report had already been leaked to the Wall Street Journal, and drawn a comprehensive refutation from George Borjas, the leading expert in the field.

If Lori Montgomery were doing her job, rather than purveying White House propaganda, she would have referenced the Borjas response, which was up on his blog yesterday. Complain to her.
