Were you wondering how foreigners managed to snap up ALL the new jobs created for the last few years?

Now you know.

And guess what. Nearly a fifth of them were illegal aliens - people forbidden to even be here, much less work. They either walked across the border, or overstayed their visas, etc.

And this was while foreigners who did it legally, were applying to the US government, paying the fees, filling out all the forms... and then waiting. And waiting. And most of them are still waiting.

This info was conveniently hidden by the Federal government, until the Center for Immigration Studies forced them to release it via a Freedom of Information Act petition.

Remember way back when government's job was to ENFORCE the law?

Naw. I can't remember that far back, either.

Report Federal Government Issued Nearly 5.5 Million Work Permits to Foreign Nationals Since 2009 National Review Online

Report: Federal Government Issued Nearly 5.5 Million Work Permits to Foreign Nationals Since 2009

More than 5.46 million foreign nationals have received work permits from the federal government since 2009, according to a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies. Data uncovered from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency reveal that approximately 982,000 work permits were given to illegal immigrants and other foreign nationals unqualified for admission, most of whom crossed the border without inspection. USCIS is the agency within the Department of Homeland Security responsible for issuing work permits and processing applications related to President Obama’s executive action on immigration. On Tuesday, the Senate is scheduled to vote on a bill that funds DHS, while blocking funding that would allow USCIS to implement the president’s executive action.

The remarkable number of work permits granted by the federal government to law-breaking aliens better explains how all net jobs growth since 2007 has gone to immigrants. The government issued approximately 1.7 million work permits since 2009 to aliens whose status was not known, not recorded, or not disclosed by USCIS, according to the report. The report says employment is not authorized by law for approximately 1.2 million immigrants who collected work permits while having a temporary visa status. And the data show that approximately 1,200 new work permits went to unlawful entrants who were denied asylum, were suspected of using fraudulent documentation, were stowaways, or were refused at a port of entry.

Approximately 1.1 million legal immigrants and 700,000 guest workers enter the country every year along with the millions of foreign nationals that have received work permits from the federal government, according to a statement from CIS. “I was astonished at the huge number of work permits that are being issued by the Obama administration outside the legal immigration system through executive discretion, especially at a time of high unemployment and stagnant wages,” said Jessica Vaughan the director of policy studies at CIS in a statement. “Besides the effect on the American worker, it encourages and rewards more illegal immigration.”

Does the OP know what the word "breaking" means?
As always, little LoneLaugher cuts straight to the most important issue in the OP. :rolleyes-41:

And he wonders why he's the only one laughing. (Everyone else is laughing AT him :biggrin:)

Government is culpable within these things of course, and we all have known this for a while, and it appears that it's controlled intent was to destroy the existing nation over time, and then to rebuild it but as what, and for who in the end (what type of people) ? All these things lead to and have led to other things on down the road (some seemingly good and some knowingly bad), and we can see the effects of it all right in front of us every day now, but we are powerless to do anything about it in which was also a part of the overall long term plan I think. There is no short term conspiracy or plan, but rather it is a long term one in which is a lot harder to detect until it is to late. Every election this nation elects it's own destruction, but with a rigged game it's so wonder it can't do any better than it does. The good guy / bad guy game is played on this nation every election, and we fall for it every time.

800,000 new naturalize citizens per year are accepted into this country...90% non-european.

Now that's the real problem.

Not really a problem if they are reasonably educated and capable of providing for themselves without government assistance.

Or even if they aren't educated. If they are hard workers, willing to learn, willing to obey U.S. law, and willing to support themselves, and have passed the citizenship tests, they are good to go.

But if they have demonstrated the intent and willingness to break U.S. law, reject them.

All illegal aliens fall into the latter category.
