Skip to comments.Surprise: More Illegal Immigrants Means More Competition For Jobs
Posted on 06/17/2012 3:39:20 PM PDT by Kaslin
Echoes of "they're takin' our jobs!" But, well, maybe, true?
The Washington Post finds that a massive amnesty program for young, educated illegal immigrants will result in a massive spike in demand for jobs. In a recovering economy, this will threaten the already-lackluster employment rate for young Americans.
Steven Camarota, a researcher with the nonprofit Center for Immigration Studies in Washington, said that the Obama administration was not taking into account the new measures probable impact on competition for jobs at the low end of the economic scale, where chronic unemployment is highest. Among Americans with less than a high school education, he said, the jobless rate is 13 percent.
It doesnt seem the administration is considering the cascading consequences, Camarota said. What does this mean for unemployed Americans who will be competing for jobs with a million-plus people who can now apply for work authorization? Is this really a good idea?
This all seems pretty obvious but, apparently, it's deserving of a Washington Post report. If you think that America's immigration laws are immoral [pdf], this shouldn't make a difference. But if you're concerned about protecting America's jobs for people who are already Americans, the cost-benefit of legalizing vast swathes of illegal immigrants might be something to take into account.
The White House hatched this immigration controversy to distract the media and the public away from the national security leaks controversy.
Okay. What will it do in this economy?
Obama is giving amnesty to habitual criminals who have been breaking our laws since they were infants.
“..The White House hatched this immigration controversy to distract the media and the public away from the national security leaks controversy...”
And the Leninist timebomb that is so incorrectly called “OBAMACARE”.
We'll see an uptick to be sure.
Including those, the administration says the unemployment rate will be about 5.4%.
Question: Are we a country or just a campground for the world?
Well played 17th ;)
Obama cannot think past his nose.
Which is always in the air.
Few jobs and also LESS TAX REVENUE.
Illegals consume more in social benefits (Welfare, housing, medical, child care) than they contribute to society. And since many of them have no documentation - they work for cash and do not pay taxes on what they do earn, thus getting additional benefits from our Welfare funds - as they technically have zero income.
Meanwhile, we have unemployment of actual US citizens who want a job, own houses and actually pay taxes.
On eve of health ruling, Ruth Bader Ginsburg predicts 'sharp disagreement'
By KYLE CHENEY | 6/15/12 7:23 PM EDT With a wry smile, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg laid waste Friday to all those rumors about the fate of the Affordable Care Act in the Supreme Court.
Those who know dont talk. And those who talk dont know, she quipped Friday night at a conference hosted by the American Constitution Society at the Capital Hilton.
If you listen carefully to this speech given to her adoring fans (you had to be there) she ended with a uplifting message to them by hinting how one of her dissents may have been a precursor to the Lilly Ledbetter Act and another may have resulted in California Gov. Jerry Brown commuting the life sentence of a woman whose appeal after having been found guilty of the shaken baby syndrome death of her grand-child had been denied by SCOTUS. Was this a tell that she will again be in dissent for the two most important cases of this current term? http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0612/77479.html#ixzz1y5zfpktl
The gambit on Friday (on illegal aliens) fits a pattern--just like with the free birth control mandate and the gay marriage "evolution"--something to fire up enthusiasm from his base and get the talking heads in the media raving about how brilliant Obama is and how awful the Republicans are. Will it actually improve Obama's ratings? That remains to be seen--those most supportive of his latest move were his supporters already.
Absolutely. Been to an unemployment office lately? Everything's in spanish. Once someone has a legal status in this country they're eligible for U/I
Wonder what the SEIU and the Wisconsin union goons think of this?
You know, I think you got something there. and he did it with the help of of Janet
DEY TOOK ARE JOOOOOBBBBBSSSS!!!!
It could get a lot worse than just 800k as well.
IF the rest of the immediate third world in Mexico, Central and South America figure out just how easy US docs are to get and how porous our border is we could have 10 or 20 times that amount plus relatives all looking for jobs, free stuff and living a life of crime. JUst more Chaos and vote buying courtesy of your local dc Chicago mob regime.
Brilliant post and so true.As well as the economy, no budget in 1,000 days,chaos in Syria, Iran, Afghanistan in pakistan so many other reasons, so little time.
CAn you say Cloward Piven? Collapse the welfare system and then move on to the really good stuff. Destruction of the US.
A report in the past was aptly entitled:
The High Cost of Cheap Labor!!
And my tagline says it all if we keep this insanity up!
Remember, though, it’s the people who hire them, and they’re bipartisan. The same constituents lobby for loosening laws that stand in their way, regulate against domestic business starts and send more manufacturing overseas.
The problem? We’re morally bankrupt. Next, the U.S. bond collapse and all that will follow it. Maybe it’s something that we need. All who are technically inclined, truly hard working and trying to be good, prepare yourselves for it. The rest...spend and party like it’s 1999.
Why are we subsidizing non US citizens’ college tuition when our own American students have $1 trillion in loan debt?
Is it really “competition” when the immigrants, minorities, and sexually perverse are given hiring preferences, enforced by the Federal government?
I don’t think the “Dreamers” will sign up in any great numbers since they will be admitting that their parents are coyotes and subject to deportation themselves.
There will be some secret sauce added, probably adjusting for "all" 800,000 entering the work force at once. The rate will probably go down, just watch the real rate will be obscured.
Those of working age will have to also be added to the unemployed - as employment was a major factor in changing the rule.
Even if the rate goes up Obama will say it is because of his good deed and the press will applaud his heroism. Watch that the "Dreamers" with existing jobs are added to the numbers first. The "Dreamers" that are unemployed now are probably not eligible for UI since they have never legally worked so won't be in the numbers at all.
These illegal aliens (and the hoards that follow) will be taking union government jobs from union households by the skillions (affirmative action will see to that).
The illegal aliens will be taking college acceptances (and classes and law school slots) away from liberal families.
The illegal aliens will be taking (more) welfare and social services from welfare rats.
And, none of them, none of them see it coming.
Plus the quasi-legal illegals are now eligible to take advantage of affirmative action preferences ahead of American citizens who don't belonged to any "protected class" (i.e., white males).
Legalization of a class of illegals means far more illegals in the near future, especially kids below the age of 31, and after a little while, maybe a couple of months, a whole lot more “legal” Democrat voters as the administration grants them Sudden Citizenship.
Obama's plan says ....illegals will be "immune from deportation" if they have "no criminal history...."
TRYING TO CLEAN UP THEIR LEGAL STATUS IS A BIG BIG PROBLEM:
+++How many forged/faked Social Security numbers do they have?
+++How many fake identities do they have?
+++How many fake identities are they using to take money under false pretenses----riding the US gravy train?
+++Do they have valid drivers' licenses?
+++Have they ever been falsely claimed under different identities on IRS returns for EITC payouts?
REFERENCE----ICE's "documents and benefits fraud task force" found a common practice among "impoverished" illegals is to buy several forged/faked identities for several thousand dollars each----the illegal then votes and rides the US gravy train under several names.
<><> Jose Madrigal---the Washington state rapist--- had some 30 identities. And probably voted and collected US benefits under every single identity.
<><> Another illegal used multiple identites to bilk UI systems of some $3.5 million.
US Dept of the Treasury Says Illegal Aliens Collecting Billions in Tax Credits According to the US Dept of Treasurys Inspector General, more than $4.2 billion in additional child credits were paid out in 2010 to illegal immigrants. In 2005, the pay outs totaled $924 million. This program allows low income earners to claim a $1,000 per child credit.
$20 billion EITC is estimated to have been paid out to these cunning "impoverished" illegals. Most of them are collecting over and over again-----using multiple identities-----falsifying official apps---claiming children they do not have and/or falsely stating kids are back in their homelands.
REFERENCE March 8, 2012 KENNER, La. -- Kenner police arrested illegal Marvin Baca who sold false W-2 forms to another illegal immigrant for $1,500. Baca sold fraudulent W-2 forms for $1,500 to other Hispanics here illegally.
Police said that on one of the forged W-2 forms had a SS no of a person living in Virginia. Police said illegal Hispanics purchase fictitious W-2 forms and file false tax returns with the government to receive EITC refunds. Baca was charged with one count of ID theft and two counts of forgery.
July 21, 2006----NJ BERGEN RECORD---Pelcastre brothers, Angel and Jorge, Dallas, Texas, were a walking threat to US national security, expert document forgers who, for a few thousand dollars, could give anyone a new identity, NJ L/E authorities said. The Texas brothers were a "one-stop shop" for a myriad of fake US documents, including birth certificates, Social Security cards, driver's licenses----for any state in the US------ passports and resident alien cards, said state police.
The Texas brothers turned a NJ hotel room into a business office and were readying a massive cache of fake Social Security cards for delivery to a local NJ identity broker. Officers happened upon two cars bearing Texas plates in a NJ hotel parking lot. The Texas brothers were followed to a NJ office supply store nearby where they purchased computer supplies. Officers then followed the Texans to a NJ storage facility in Secaucus, NJ, where the Texans loaded several boxes into a car. One of them stood lookout.
After a search, police recovered laminating sheets with built-in security features, pages of blank documents waiting for fake names and information, finished documents, computers and software to create the fake IDs.
All told, the haul was worth about $500,000 on the street when sold to "impoverished illegals." Police also recovered $6,000 in cash, which was the first payment from a NJ fake document broker for a shipment of 500 phony Social Security cards.
Obama is on his knees, lips puckered, doing global suckups to nail down voting blocs. Every hyphenate in every hemisphere will get a suckup----in hopes hyphenates will vote Obama.
HYPHENATE SUCKUP Obama is desperate----he will do anything to get illegal votes. These "dreamers" are Third World voting blocs organized by salivating federales---conniving pressure groups---pulling a con to get billion dollar foreign aid allocations.
THE "DREAMERS" ARE USING MULTIPLE IDENTITIES----There's loads of parasitic ID brokers selling fake ID's to "impoverished" border violators for several thousand dollars each. Juan Madrigal--the Wash/state rapist--had some 30 identities. Another illegal used multiple identities to bilk UI of several million dollars. Two illegals---that equals some 40-50 votes (/snix)
HYPHENATE SUCKUP Obama is conferring the prestigious US Presidential Medal of Freedom on Israeli president Shimon Peres. This is being touted as a major opportunity to gain spy scum Pollard's release.....further conformation that Israel knew about Pollard's spying which undermined US ntl security.
At the time, afraid it would lose foreign aid billions, Israel refused to acknowledge Pollard's spying---but in 1995 Pollard was made a citizen of Israel by then-prime minister Netanyahu (now the current PM). Pollard's ex-sife and partner in spy/crimes lives in Israel.
NOTE Pollard is a criminal in the US but is considereed a hero in the "peaceful (gag) free" Mideast environs.
This will continue on for ever, not just the predicted 800,000 that are affected now..how are they going to do back ground checks to see that they h ave been out of trouble.. plus their birth certificates to claim their ages, are from where? Now that these people will be here legally, they will be eligible for all the goodies. welfare, medi cal, section 8 housing, medical,
