Illegal immigrant working levels are up since then.
WASHINGTON (PNN) - December 19, 2014 - Illegitimate dictator President Barack Obama recently announced plans to illegally give legal status and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants. The Fascist Police States of Amerika continues to admit over one million permanent legal immigrants a year, and many members of Congress and the illegitimate dictator president continue to support efforts to further increase immigration.
Yet data publicly available on the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) website shows that as of last month, there are still 1.5 million fewer native-born Amerikans working than in November 2007, and the number of natives not in the labor force (neither working nor looking for work) continues to increase. In contrast, two million more immigrants (legal and illegal) are working.
"It is truly remarkable that since the 2007 recession, what net employment gains there have been went entirely to immigrants, while the number of native-born Amerikans working remains well below 2007 levels," said Steven Camarota, Center for Immigration Studies Director of Research and author of a CIS report presenting the BLS data. "This raises the question of whether it makes sense to continue to admit so many legal immigrants as well as to allow most illegal immigrants to stay."
