Two-thirds of jobs go to immigrants
The Washington Times ^ | 11/1/12 | Stephen Dinan

Posted on 11/01/2012 3:44:07 AM PDT by markomalley

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 country’s hardest-hit postindustrial regions.

“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.

Really; this headline could be from Captain Obvious. Why else would the “replacement Americans” be imported here?

It's not that illegals are more mobile but CHEAPER. Their employment is subsidized by taxpayers.

In addition currently the majority of illegals and legal immigrants come here because our big government gives out better bennies than theirs.

Illegals and legal immigrants cost US taxpayers NET hundreds of billions per year. IIRC various forms of welfare come to near 1 trillion per year and illegals and legal immigrants get a big chunk of that. That is without mentioning native born pushed into using the welfare net because of salary suppression and loss of job opportunity.

Meanwhile 200,000 and counting apply for amnesty and work permits under DHS's DACA program .

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.
