    Here is some truth, Business Insider reported:

    •Of jobs created in Texas since 2007, 81 percent were taken by newly arrived immigrant workers (legal and illegal).
    •In terms of numbers, between the second quarter of 2007, right before the recession began, and the second quarter of 2011, total employment in Texas increased by 279,000. Of this, 225,000 jobs went to immigrants (legal and illegal) who arrived in the United States in 2007 or later.
    •Of newly arrived immigrants who took a job in Texas, 93 percent were not U.S. citizens. Thus government data show that more than three-fourths of net job growth in Texas were taken by newly arrived non-citizens (legal and illegal).
    •The large share of job growth that went to immigrants is surprising because the native-born accounted for 69 percent of the growth in Texas’ working-age population (16 to 65). Thus, even though natives made up most of the growth in potential workers, most of the job growth went to immigrants.
    •The share of working-age natives holding a job in Texas declined significantly, from 71 percent in 2007 to 67 percent in 2011. This decline is very similar to the decline for natives in the United States as a whole and is an indication that the situation for native-born workers in Texas is very similar to the overall situation in the country despite the state’s job growth.
    •Of newly arrived immigrants who took jobs in Texas since 2007, we estimate that 50 percent (113,000) were illegal immigrants. Thus, about 40 percent of all the job growth in Texas since 2007 went to newly arrived illegal immigrants and 40 percent went to newly arrived legal immigrants.
    •Immigrants took jobs across the educational distribution. More than one out three (97,000) of newly arrived immigrants who took a job had at least some college.
    •These numbers raise the question of whether it makes sense to continue the current high level of legal immigration and also whether to continue to tolerate illegal immigration

    He looks bad anyway, they had to drop millions from the roles, Even the CBO punked this admin by clearly saying the UE rate was 1.6% higher then reported.

    Gee, Wytch...since State governments can't legally run deficits but are required to balance their budgets...and the States don't have even close to the revenues they need to pay their bills...public sector jobs were going to be cut no matter WHO was in the state houses. Those jobs should have been cut back two years ago but were "saved" by the Obama stimulus. Funny how 600,000 jobs have been cut in the last few years and things still run just fine. Think maybe our public sector was a bit bloated and overstaffed? But as a progressive you of course think we should NEVER lay off public sector workers...right?
