Analysis: In Obama’s economy, immigrants outpace native-born Americans
The Daily Caller ^ | October 1, 2012 | Neil Munro

Immigrant job-seekers have gained far more in President Barack Obama’s weak economy than have native-born Americans, according to government data.

Since Obama’s 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. He’s 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.”

The numbers

The job data is collected in the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ monthly survey of American households. The survey shows that immigrants won three out of every four jobs added since January 2009′s employment totals, even though immigrants are only one-sixth of the workforce in a nation of 310 million people....

Wasn’t this one of 0bama’s goals? To help the brown socialist invaders kill off the evil white capitalist inhabitants?

That's been the Left's goal since the infamous Immigration Act of 1965 that Teddy Kennedy worked so hard to pass and which was eventually signed by LBJ. To quote Wiki:

"The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 (Hart-Cellar Act, INS, Act of 1965, Pub.L. 89-236)[1] abolished the National Origins Formula that had been in place in the United States since the Immigration Act of 1924...

"In order to convince the American populace - the majority of whom were opposed to the act - of the legislation's merits, its liberal proponents assured that passage would not influence America's culture significantly. 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.
