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.
The Center for Immigration Studies is releasing the study Thursday morning, 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 Mr. Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney have struggled to find a winning jobs message in some of the countrys hardest-hit postindustrial regions.
Its extraordinary that most of the employment growth in the last four years has gone to the foreign-born, but whats even more extraordinary is the issue has not even come up during a presidential election that is so focused on jobs, said Steven A.

The war on white males continues! The government and human resources are punishing the white man with affirmative action each and every new hire!
People that don’t live on Democrat Plantations find the jobs.
Not surprising...”our people” would rather collect food stamps than work. I hope Romney shuts of the free stuff unless you WORK for it.
The working immigrant may not collect the 'free stuff', but believe me his dependents are.
Shut the 'free stuff' off for EVERYONE but the most needy, and stop importing more.
