Think about it. The real objection to companies shifting jobs to other countries isn’t the location of the jobs, it is the move from U.S. citizens* to non-U.S. citizens. If the jobs went overseas to U.S. citizens I doubt people would object.
So what happens with illegal immigration? Non-U.S. citizens take the jobs of U.S. citizens and consume far more resources than they contribute. At least the Indian guy on the support desk isn’t demanding that you fund the medical and education costs for him and his family, and he isn’t committing crimes in this country.
The great irony is that open border Leftists like Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis are the ones who claim to care about the poor. But the illegal immigrants drive down the wages of the poor in this country and take many of their jobs. What kind of “social justice” is that?
If anyone objects to outsourcing of U.S. jobs – and most people seem to — do a consistency check and ask them their views on illegal immigration. Be sure to gently point out any inconsistencies.
