Immigrants account for all job gains since 2000: native-born workers’ employment has fallen

By Stephen Dinan

The Washington Times

Wednesday, July 3, 2013

Immigrants — both legal and illegal — have accounted for all of the job gains in the U.S. labor market since 2000, according to a report that highlights the stiff competition for jobs in a tight economy as Congress debates adding more workers to the mix.

The Center for Immigration Studies report, which is being released Wednesday, says 22.4 million immigrants of working age held jobs at the beginning of this year, up 5.3 million over the total in 2000. But native-born workers with jobs dropped 1.3 million over that same period, from 114.8 million to 113.5 million.

Meanwhile, the number of Americans who aren’t in the labor force at all has jumped by almost 13 million to reach 48.6 million — a finding the report’s authors say signals profound changes in the American job market and challenges conventional wisdom that immigration is good for the economy.

“The last 13 years, or even the last five years, make clear that large-scale immigration can go hand-in-hand with weak job growth and declining rates of work among the native-born,” the authors, Steven A. Camarota and Karen Zeigler, say in their report. “Given the employment situation in the country, the dramatic increases in legal immigration contemplated by the Gang of Eight immigration bill seem out of touch with the realities of the U.S. labor market.”

It is eerie and unrecognizable. I drop my children off at schools where 50%+ of the children are imports; I visit the Meadowlands Flea Market and see unemployed Americans selling their tools to imported adults that have taken their jobs.

Heartbreaking.

Just one amendment on the Senate floor dealt with potential competition for jobs, and that was a minor measure to require states to certify that their employers are actively trying to recruit American workers before businesses can try to recruit seasonal workers, who are often used at summer beach resorts or winter ski slopes.

Yeah that's worked out so well in high-tech for the past twenty years, there's no way an employer can fake "actively trying".

“This is not my country any more. I just live here.”

Sadly, there is much truth to your statement.

Can you take video of the latter?

It is unrecognizeable. I have the same thing where we live. You go out and you don’t hear any English being spoken — at least not in any larger city area.

You go out to smaller towns and the country, and it’s still there.

But it’s disappearing. We are in TROUBLE.

I went to several casinos in Wendover, Nevada last weekend. Fully half of the gamblers there were Hispanics, most were speaking Spanish among themselves.

“I just live here.”

Recently, I was shopping in a Kohl's store. I heard a several minute "ad" played over the PA system. In English. A few minutes later, the entire ad was played completely in Spanish!

Another thing I've recently noticed. At my local Walmart, the aisles are full with Spanish speaking hispanic females and their numerous children. There's usually two adult females with numerous children. This is on almost every aisle, carts full of goodies, throughout the store. I've now started to notice this at Target, too.

Meanwhile, the cashiers at Target are mostly young hispanics who can barely speak English.

That is certainly true here with legal immigrants : Koreans(#1), Indians, Pakistanees,....have overwhelmed this part of country and here in Maryland are getting great paying jobs, buying up expensive housing , paying extremely high taxes(its Maryland).

This is much different situation then the illegal situation in South-West and related areas.

Dont forget lots of Federal $$$ is here and that requires diversity promotion and affirmative Action.
And those groups above are getting the educations required for those $$$$ jobs.

Sorry, one pet peeve.

Welfare != legalized. It is Unconstitutional = illegal to start.

Sad?

What is one to expect when gov’t fails in its duties to secure the border, track and deport?

When gov’t gives green cards, and possibly Citizenship, to over 1M immigrants a YEAR. Is there a need to import such numbers? What/when is the limit?

When business gets away with hiring low-skill, low-education workers?

When those immigrants and law-breakers feel no need to (attempt to) assimilate, follow our laws, DEMAND xyz from the Citizens of this Country, etc.?

American citizens are being exterminated by this Clinton-Bush-Obama-approved plan.

"Yeah that's worked out so well in high-tech for the past twenty years, there's no way an employer can fake "actively trying"."

You've got that right. Indians have completely taken over. Once they get a foothold in management and hiring practices, it's all over for Americans in that entity. I've been in IT for 30 years and I've seen Americans pushed out to such a degree that any IT group looks like it's operating in Bangalore.

Nothing to see here, people. Just keep repeating the mantra about “illegal immigrants do the jobs Americans won’t do” and all will be well.

Also, I've been in Florida for about a year now and Haitians have taken over a broad swath of job types - most significantly government jobs.

How does this happen with laws that stipulate hiring citizens first? Easy - the foreign workers get a toehold in hiring decisions, then a foothold, and keep expanding by ignoring laws and discriminating against hiring Americans. They don't give a hoot about our laws, all they care about is taking over our jobs and diminishing any influence from outside of their ranks. They know how to game any government system (immigration, welfare, healthcare, taxing, and hiring). If anyone raises a concern, they are labeled xenophobic, bigoted, and racist.

We live in banana republic because the Rats want a permanent majority voting block of underclass dependents so they can rule over the producers in society. We're well past the tipping point. All it will take is one more straw on the backs of producers (like Obamacareless kicking in) before the SHTF.

12 years ago in AZ, 80-90% of the construction workers were Americans. By 2006, 90% of them were illegal immigrants, with one bi-lingual foreman. Yeah.

This is one of the saddest threads I’ve ever seen.

So what are we going to do about it? If this is what it’s like now, just imagine what the future will be like for your children and grandchildren. Are we going to do anything? Or is it already too late?

I wouldn’t doubt that these “female pairs” are living together and pooling their welfare resources to live high on the hog. It would make sense as that’s all I see also, and they’re usually carting multiple bags of crap out of the stores ...it’s just hanging off the strollers.

“If so I may be able to get a film crew there in a few weeks.”

Worth a try, but they’ve had State Police raids there (for counterfeit/knockoff goods, not the thousands of illegal aliens).

The jobs that were created were filled by illegal immigrants AND government as past and especially the current evil regime bloated the central socialist government.

True Conservatives create jobs and opportunity for American citizens wile progressives create more and more dependency on government.

The evil Obama regime has added more Americans to welfare and food stamp programs then any other administration in our history. Over 100 million Americans receive some form of welfare subsidy (one out of three Americans) which is outrageous and embarrassing for a country that was the leader of the free world. Here businesses bear the highest tax rate of any nation in the world and Americans are fleeced by the state and central government at a greedy rate which encourages those lazy citizens to stay on the couch all day while living on the public dole.
