Maybe, and maybe not. Those that say that illegal aliens are the blood of our economy are after all, guilty of knowingly using them in their businesses. Why should we believe what amounts to a league of felons? The Chamber of Commerce is corrupt and thus has no credibility with the American people. They were ignored during their intense lobbying for the recent Senate amnesty bill, and they'll continue to lose. I prefer to believe the logic of Steven Camarota. From the same article:

Steven Camarota, research director at the pro-enforcement Center for

Immigration Studies think tank in Washington, said most illegal immigrants were unskilled workers.

"Before you buy into that kind of argument you have to take a step back and ask what kind of labor do illegal immigrants provide?" Camarota said.

"I find it very hard to take seriously the argument that the key to a state's economic success depends on having a lot of high school dropouts."
