America is a very rich economy; odds are that those foreign workers more desperately need their jobs in order to survive than American workers.

Also, there is an economic benefit to Americans in having roads populated by well-made cars.
Is it too late for American car manufacturers to bring customers back?
American car manufacturers produced terrible cars and refused to change that even though it was being made clear by their Japanese, German and later Korean rivals. Now that they have admitted it (with Chrysler essentially no longer being an American carmaker as a result) it may be too late to bring customers back.
