Apparently, liberal celebrities understand the threat immigration can present to American jobs when their opportunities are at stake.
Samuel L. Jackson recently complained in an interview about black actors from Britain taking jobs that could have gone to black actors in America.

Samuel L Jackson Criticizes Casting of Black British Actor in ‘Get Out’ (Video)
Samuel L. Jackson has criticized the casting of black British actors in films about racism in America, citing recent horror hit “Get Out” and “Selma” as key examples.
“There are a lot of black British actors in these movies,” Jackson said in an interview with the New York radio station Hot 97 . “I tend to wonder what that movie [‘Get Out’] would have been with an American brother who really understands that.”
The movie’s lead actor, Daniel Kaluuya, was born in London; in “Get Out,” he plays an African-American. “Get Out” director Jordan Peele told the Observer that he didn’t initially want to cast a British actor in the lead “because this movie was so much about representation of the African-American experience,” but after a Skype call with Kaluuya, he knew he was the right choice…
When asked why so many British actors are cast in American roles, the “Kong: Skull Island” actor responded, “They’re cheaper than us, for one thing.
Well Mr. Jackson, these British actors are just doing the jobs American actors won’t do. Isn’t that what American workers are always told by liberals?

Congratulations, Mr. Jackson. You are finally starting to understand the concerns of millions of your fellow Americans.
