SHOCK - Two-thirds of jobs went to the foreign-born

The US is importing millions of new immigrants.
As of today there are 175 mosques in New York City alone serving huge numbers of legal immigrants that compete with Americans for a limited number of jobs.

SHOCK - Most of the employment growth in the last four years has gone to the foreign-born
  • Both Democrats and Republicans fall all over each other to be "pro-legal Immigrant."
  • The Democrats want more poor immigrant voters, GOP businessmen want cheap foreign labor.
  • Neither party gives a damn about jobless native born Americans as the aggressive importation of legal immigrants goes on and on.

My wife can tell you all about legal immigration and unemployment in America.

The entire 2nd floor of her company outside of Los Angeles is filled with so-called "temporary" workers from India.  They are here legally courtesy of the US Government.  But the company hires them through a temp agency so there are no benefits to be paid and they work for lower wages than the American workers they replaced.

Now the Washington Times reports that two-thirds of those who have found employment under President Obama are immigrants, both legal and illegal, according to an analysis that suggests immigration has soaked up a large portion of what little job growth there has been over the past three years.

As Americans go unemployed both parties in Congress eagerly import
millions of brand new legal immigrants into the US.

The Center for Immigration Studies released the study, a day ahead of the final Labor Department unemployment report of the campaign season, which is expected to show a sluggish job market more than three years into the economic recovery.

That slow market, combined with the immigration numbers, could explain why Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney have struggled to find a winning jobs message in some of the country’s hardest-hit postindustrial regions reports The Washington Times.

PFIR National TV Ad Campaign 
The ad campaign debunks the oft heard refrain that immigrants merely take jobs "Americans won't do." As the ad points out, high immigration levels flood U.S. labor markets, displacing workers in various sectors of the labor pool, including construction, hospitality and others.

“It’s extraordinary that most of the employment growth in the last four years has gone to the foreign-born, but what’s even more extraordinary is the issue has not even come up during a presidential election that is so focused on jobs,” said Steven A. Camarota, the center’s research director, who wrote the report along with demographer Karen Zeigler.

His numbers are stark: Since the first quarter of 2009, the number of immigrants of working age (16 to 65) who are employed has risen 2 million, from 21.2 million to 23.2 million. During the same time, native-born employment has risen just 1 million, to reach 119.9 million.

In 2000, 76 percent of natives aged 18 to 65 were employed, but that dropped steadily to 69 percent this September. By contrast, immigrants started the last decade at 71 percent employment and rose to a peak of 74 percent at the height of the George W. Bush-era economic boom. They since have slid down to 69 percent amid the sluggish economy.
