Immigrant workers issues

Friend and colleague Peter Rousmaniere has started a new blog dealing with immigrant worker issues. Peter is a well-known author on all things workers comp, occupational health and safety, and an insightful critic at large.
One of Peter’s more troubling findings is the tendency of alien workers to not report occupational injuries or illnesses. With the large number of immigrants working in the US today, and the well-publicized decline in the occupational injury rate, I’m wondering if there is a relationship between the two.
Are migrant workers replacing citizens, then getting injured and not reporting it, thereby artificially reducing the reported injury rate?
Anyone?
