In ending DACA earlier this week, Attorney General Jeff Sessions reiterated a frequently made claim:  White House claims ‘dreamers’ take jobs away from blacks and Hispanics. As Tracy Jan for the Washington Post reports, "Here’s the problem: immigrant and native-born workers are imperfect substitutes. There is no evidence that the unemployed Americans, be they black, white or Hispanic, have the skills necessary to hold the same jobs occupied by the young beneficiaries of the five-year-old Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program."
