    The African American Leadership Council opposes amnesty and is lobbying the CBC to oppose it.

    Second, you can xenophobic and not racist.  Xenophobia means fear of the outsider, foreigner, and stranger, which may or may not be conjoined with racism.  Considering the AALC seems to oppose amnesty based on fear over jobs and wages lost, I would consider this an example of xenophobia.  The fear has no basis in economic fact, therefore it is irrational and thus a "phobia."
