A question worth asking

Thomas Sowell, amid the almost universal condemnation of the immigration bill, takes aim at the bizarre idea that illegal immigrants are benefiting the country by taking on jobs that Americans won't do:

Even in the sector of the economy in which illegal immigrants have the highest representation -- agriculture -- they are just 24 percent of the workers. Where did the other 76 percent come from, if these are jobs that Americans won't do?

Where, indeed?
