Immigrant job-seekers have gained far more in President Barack Obamas weak economy than have native-born Americans, according to government data.
Since Obamas inauguration, employers have fired and hired millions of workers during the bust and slow recovery. The net result is that they employed more than 1.7 million more immigrants but only 418,000 more native-born Americans in August 2012, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics household survey.
That number seems like a usable tool on the table if [Gov. Mitt] Romney wanted to use it to drive up [his] numbers, a GOP operative told The Daily Caller.
Romney may want to leverage those numbers. Hes lagging among a winnable and critical constituency swing-voting, working class whites in the Midwest whom Washington, D.C. has forced to compete against the huge influx of low-skill, low-wage immigrants.
The number sounds right, said Mark Weaver, a GOP consultant in Ohio. There are parts of Ohio that would be receptive to the message that Barack Obama has opened the door to illegal immigration that is taking jobs from Ohioans.

President Johnson called the bill "not revolutionary", Secretary of State Dean Rusk estimated only a few thousand Indian immigrants over the next five years, and other politicians, including Edward Kennedy, hastened to reassure the populace that the demographic mix would not be affected; these assertions would later prove wildly inaccurate."
So credit for the sabotage goes back at least 50 years. Obama is merely the decorative cherry on top of the Progressive/Marxist cake celebrating the end of traditional American culture.
