I'd agree, except that we're not talking about a free market today, we're talking about a welfare state.  Some people want to come make a living with their own two hands, true, but others will come for the free goodies, and there's nothing in place to encourage the first group and discourage the second.  On the contrary: the Democratic Party and race-baiting groups like La Raza have every reason to encourage the second group.

There's a quote that sums it up well: "Democracy, immigration, multi-culturalism--pick any two."  You can have lots of immigrants from different cultures, as long as you don't allow much freedom or let them vote power for their groups.  You can have a democracy with lots of immigrants, as long as they're all the same culture, because they'll get along and tend to play by the same rules.  You can have a multi-cultural democracy as long as you keep immigration to a trickle, so the various cultures don't have to worry about newbies stealing their piece of the pie.  But to try to have all three at once is national suicide.  

We're pretty committed to democracy, and multi-culturalism is our new national religion, so that leaves immigration as the one thing we might be willing to cut back on in self-defense.  I suspect when the official unemployment numbers hit 20% (meaning real unemployment will be 30% or higher), this problem will start to solve itself.
