There was a time, not too long ago - and many Americans are operating under the impression it's still true - that there was an immigration escalator. That is; if you come to the U.S., work hard, play by the rules, you would find upward mobility, and your children would be better off than you.

It's common wisdom that racial minorities are hurt more than whites in the recession.
