They are part of the same movement, and dependent on each other. Capital depends on an ever increasing supply of low wage, willing labor. Immigrants fit this bill nicely, since they come from poor countries and are willing to accept any work. Without this, the supply of labor would dry up, population would stop growing, and costs would increase, which would diminish profit and make business fail. Production and consumption would decline, asset prices would fall, and the economy would enter permanent recession. You can't have it both ways, America. If you want to remain capitalist, you must accept immigrants.
