All of your great great grandparents (more or less greats depending on the scenario) moved here as well, and unless you are Native American you are all descendants of European, Eastern European, African, etc IMMIGRANTS.
Seriously, get off the high horse. It is a global economy and a global world nowadays. Expand your mind.

She is now married to our son and has 2 wonderful daughters.
My wifes parents emigrated from Germany and mine from Germany and Sweden so most of us are like her unless you are Native American Indian.
She wants a job why not?
Our dil used her 5 fluent languages and degrees to work for an oil company in Houston.

OK, I'll expand my mind as should the original poster. And you are right, my ancestors came over in Pilgrim times and were hard-working people who didn't expect a handout from the government as many of the so-called immigrants do today. Since it's a global economy, the OP and others should consider all countries as possibilities to emigrate to, or maybe they should stay home and make an effort to improve their economy at home.

With unemployment running at 10-11% here, we don't need any additional folks in the employment pool. Put the Americans back to work first and then when things improve and more jobs are created, open up the doors for those with the proper skill sets to fill the available jobs.

Yup, mine came and were farmers, so they didn't take a job from anyone already here.

Yeah..Exactly the point! DV-lottery winners and asylum seekers is what this country needs. High skilled and educated expats aren't in demand anymore.
