Yes, but then there's the theory that high immigration undermines public support for doing anything about inequality (people are happier to redistribute to people like themselves - hence, no meaningful global redistribution is ever mooted). So maybe those who 'favour' wage inequality should support immigration and those who are against it should be opposed. Speaking as a Right-winger, I have no in-principle problem with sensible redistribution (i.e., that doesn't undermine incentives for work and personal responsibility).
