Two-Thirds Of Jobs Go To Immigrants During Obamas Four Years Researchers say legals and illegals are more mobile than natives in America
By Stephen Dinan-The Washington Times October 31, 2012
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.
The Center for Immigration Studies is releasing the study Thursday morning, a day ahead of the final Labor Department unemployment report of the campaign season, which is expected to show a sluggish job market more than three years into the economic recovery.
That slow market, combined with the immigration numbers, could explain why Mr. Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney have struggled to find a winning jobs message in some of the countrys hardest-hit postindustrial regions.
Its extraordinary that most of the employment growth in the last four years has gone to the foreign-born, but whats even more extraordinary is the issue has not even come up during a presidential election that is so focused on jobs, said Steven A. Camarota, the centers research director, who wrote the report along with demographer Karen Zeigler.
His numbers are stark: Since the first quarter of 2009, the number of immigrants of working age (16 to 65) who are employed has risen 2 million, from 21.2 million to 23.2 million. During the same time, native-born employment has risen just 1 million, to reach 119.9 million.

Hmmm... I wonder how Romney could frame an ad capitalizing on this. Not sure there is a good way to do it.
Not sure either, but I am forwarding this to a long-term UE friend who voted for O in 2008 along with his wife.
Some folks just don’t want the jobs these immigrants are taking because it’s easier to just get their welfare and unemployment checks from the Government than to work....oh sorry, EBT cards.
As long as I got my EBT card, I don’t care. Skin deep tribe power!/s/s/

There have been no net jobs created in Obama’s 4 years. Immigrants took the jobs of Americans. Millions more Americans moved to disability, more than 12 million more on foodstamps , all this with 6 trillion $ in obama debt pumped into the economy. Obama’s government and government regulations are crushing the economy, businesses and our freedom.
Here is a note I just received from a friend. I'd like to remain anonymous in what I'm about to tell u but I welcome u to share this thru email.I got it third hand via email, so it must be true...
I'm returning now from being in gatlinburg. I was shocked to notice that many of the shops are replaced by new ones. The owners have foreign accents. I would guess 80% are now run by Indians Pakistanis and now Ukrainians! I asked one lady where she was from and she said Ukraine. I asked 2 other shop owners where they were from: Ukraine. I jokingly asked " did you folks buy up the whole left side of Gatlinburg? She with barely veiled hatred and disdain said" Yeah, pretty much".
I tried to ask a vendor whom I asked first if he was American, about what was happening with all the foreigners. He refused to even talk about it. I asked another group and they seemed afraid but one woman spoke up with an attitude of careless determination and told us that the chamber of commerce was Iranians. That there was nothing they could do but try to stand. The others looked at her and each other nervously.
I spoke to a young lady in a in busy shop and she carefully began to open up a little. She said the town was being bought up by a rich lawyer called Joe Baker and that he is renting the shops out to foreigners because they can afford higher rent since they don't have to pay taxes for 5 years. She said the foreigners change the business name and sell it to a relative and it continues tax free for 5 more years.
It's destroying Gatlinburg. It feels creepy. I asked what the religious affiliation of most of the foreigners was--they said: MUSLIM!!!!
A Muslim foothold in the mountains of Tennessee!
Very scary and poignant!
Anybody in the Gatlinburg area care to comment/verify?
