I don't think Americans (and conservatives) have a problem with multiculturalism, per se. I think they jsut have a problem with it being in their back yard. As with all things American, follow the money. We have no problem exporting jobs into foreign labor markets with lower standards and wages for the sake of profit. This brand of "multiculturalism" is seen as good business sense. EDIT: I didn't mean to quote anyone in my response, so please forgive that oversight.
