    Actually, more like the economy is bad and it's cheaper to hire people with no benefits and lower wages.

    Duh.

    No way thats more likely than Obama waving his job stick and making jobs for illegals. (I thought government couldn't create jobs?)

    Well if most of them are legal then, I fail to see the problem? After all we all are immigrants....in case you forgot.:)

    So hiring immigrants is bad?

    Illegal Aliens are not Immigrants. Immigrants come to the USA legally.

    so new people show up and get jobs while the ones who were here get EBT's

    don't worry libbies.....it will only take a few generations to turn the newcomers into dependants also

    That's funny,when the pilgrims came over did they have papers? lol....

    If you read what Patsfanin Philly typed:

    BOTH LEGAL AND ILLEGAL

    Mean not all of them are Illegal Aliens...that there are some legal immigrants...:bricks:

    What's there to correct? From the article
    >>>>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.<<<<<

    author's terminology, not mine, thought I agree with Triumph.

    It just goes to prove that Obama job creation is low wage type work. Employers can pay them dirt wages because there is no where else to go if they dont like it.

    Though, fewer Illegals are coming to the US because of the Obama economy. Good work Obama!

    Yes, the Pilgrims are relevant to todays problems. The Coast Guard should have stopped them before landing.

    The Illegal Aliens have jobs and the Immigrants have jobs too.

    If you want to make a case that illegal immigrants are most of the job growth then you'd get more agreement, but if you include legal immigrants in the equation then you are criticizing them too. Legal immigration is what we're going for isn't it? And if they immigrate legally and get a job and contribute to our society then that should be lauded. It's a big part of what we stand for here. Why should anyone resent legal immigrants getting jobs?

    There are statistical methods that can be used. Honestly I don't know how much stock can be put in them.

    It's like those statistics where they say x/10 rapes go unreported.

    But our gov't employment reports do not even attempt to calculate illegal employment. It's just not part of the Employment report equation.

    Basically, no one cares if illegals are unemployed...even our gov't.

    There's a lot of interest in keeping illegals in this country. everyone talks tough on illegals, but when push comes to shove, nobody wants to go against the businesses that depend on their low wages.
