Doing Jobs Americans Won't

Another case of mistaken headline on Yahoo:

Calif. looks to immigrant inmates to save costs
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – With California slipping into a financial sinkhole, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is proposing to save more than $180 million by cutting short the sentences of thousands of immigrants in the state's prisons and turning them over to federal authorities for deportation.

Is it just me, or when reading that headline did you think, "oh, they must be getting immigrants to take the place of inmates because the immigrants will be prisoners for less pay than the guys they're replacing"?

OK, it was probably just me. I'll go get more coffee.
