    According to a new study, two-thirds of the jobs obtained across the U.S. have gone to legal and illegal immigrants since Barack Obama has taken office. The study was conducted by The Center for Immigration Studies and is based on U.S. Census Bureau results. Since the first quarter of 2009, the number of immigrants finding jobs has grown by two million, from 21.2 million to 23.2 million, while the native-born Americans have only found one million more, growing to 119.9 million.

    One reason may be that new immigrants are more mobile, not having a hometown to which they are attached. Another reason is that agriculture and high-tech industries have been hiring more. A third reason may be that natives can more easily file for unemployment benefits.

    Meanwhile, in October, the City Council of Los Angeles okayed services cards for illegal immigrants which gave illegal immigrants access to banks and library services. *Ira Melman of the Federation of Immigration Reform fought the measure, saying:
    “It’s making it easier for people to violate federal immigration laws and easier for people to take jobs that should be going to unemployed Americans, What they’re also doing is very recklessly ratifying false identities. They have no idea who the people are when they come forward.”

    Economy to be Obama's focus in State of the Union
    Feb 9,`13 WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama will focus his State of the Union address on boosting job creation and economic growth at a time of high unemployment, underscoring the degree to which the economy could threaten his ability to pursue second-term priorities such as gun control, immigration policy and climate change.

    That's because immigrants work cheap.



    If Americans learned to work cheap, they'd have lots of jobs too.

    Maybe Americans just need to eat beans and rice for the rest of their lives.

    And since the Right has been saying nearly all of the job growth since Obama took office has been due to the energy sector we can assume those immigrants are being hired by Big Oil!!! Further proof that Big Oil always puts America first. :cuckoo:

    too stupid!! IF liberals didn't invite 20 million illegals here to take our jobs, if they didn't provide tax incentives to move jobs off-shore, if they didn't support unions which drove 30 million jobs offshore, and if they didn't run deficits so the Japanese and Chinese could buy our debt rather than our products we would have very full employment at very very high wages!!!

    Now even you can see how liberals destroy jobs and wages!!

    That sounds totally preposterous, and since the study is done by an anti-immigration group, I'm going to call bullshit.

    The group is very anti-immigrant. They advocate self deportation and study the "dangers" immigrants pose to America.
