Report: Immigration Bill Would Add Nearly 14,000 Jobs Per District [Lies, lies and more lies]
ABC News ^ | Aug 20, 2013 | By JORDAN FABIAN

Posted on 08/20/2013 12:28:49 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

The Senate’s immigration bill would add nearly 14,000 new jobs on average in each congressional district over the next decade, according to a new report.

The new analysis is from the center-right American Action Network (AAN), which backs an overhaul of the nation’s immigration laws. It’s being distributed to lawmakers’ offices as pro-reform groups seek to convince GOP congressmen to vote for immigration reform proposals this fall.

District-by-district data is available through this web tool. No district would see fewer than 7,000 jobs created by 2023, and an average of 13,992 new jobs would be created in each. The figures were compiled using data from a Regional Economic Models, Inc. (REMI) study of economic data and new worker visas and a Congressional Budget Office report on the impact of the Senate bill.

The figures could provide more cover for Republican House members who are considering backing reform. It could allow them to explain their position to skeptical constituents during August recess, when immigration has been a hot topic at town hall meetings.

Pro-reform conservatives have long framed immigration reform as a job-creation effort, dovetailing with the GOP message on jobs and the goals of party leaders to broaden that message to Latino voters.

Anyone pushing this economy-wrecking, job-killing, sovereignty-killing, treasonous Marxist propaganda is no conservative.

Unfortunately, they will all be government jobs providing welfare and other social benefits to the newly minted "citizens"...

With 435 congressional districts, that comes out to more than 6,000,000 jobs.

I call “Complete BS” on this.

Sure it would. More obstetricians would be needed for all the new citizen anchor babies, you need more Department of Human Services to hand out more EBT cards, more police officers to arrest more gangbangers, etc...you clearly don’t know what you’re talking about.../s

Lets see. Fewer and fewer decent jobs for those without higher education. We can’t create jobs for those we already have in that quandary so by adding millions more of them that will somehow create jobs.
Anyone can take any set of numbers and extrapolate anything they wish.

Anything ABC says is 'center-right' is, in actuality, hardcore left.

Reading their model, it seems to me they’re saying that economic activity will increase because illegals doing under the table jobs will legalize, then they’ll get higher wages, and that will result in the nirvana of economic activity lifting everybody’s boats.

They don’t seem to allow for:

1. Under-the-table businesses not wanting to go legal and pay higher wages.

2. New illegals flooding in to take those under-the-table jobs at the same low wages, turning the new legals into unemployed welfare clients.

3. Higher unemployment and welfare costs

From the Remi report:

***We attribute the increase in wages following legalization to two causes, which we categorize as compliance and productivity. The first category, compliance, represents an increase in wages, without any productivity gains, that results from employers more closely conforming to labor legislation such as minimum wage and overtime requirements. The second category, labor productivity, represents pay increases that occur in conjunction with increases in labor productivity.***

And this is what passes for intelligence in Washington DC.

Their model on page 23 also says that employment is a function of them taking into account: (http://www.remi.com/download/Key%20Components%20of%20Immigration%20Reform.pdf)

all government spending, all consumer spending, all investment, all exports, and the entire domestic market.

And they plug whatever wild assumptions in and then come out with their number on employment.

This one graph shows the fallacy of the idea that more immigration will increase jobs:

Between the first quarter of 2000 and the first quarter of 2013, the native-born population accounted for two-thirds of overall growth in the working-age population (16 to 65), but none of the net growth in employment among the working-age has gone to natives.

The overall size of the working-age native-born population increased by 16.4 million from 2000 to 2013, yet the number of natives actually holding a job was 1.3 million lower in 2013 than 2000.

The total number of working-age immigrants (legal and illegal) increased 8.8 million and the number working rose 5.3 million between 2000 and 2013.

Even before the recession, when the economy was expanding (2000 to 2007), 60 percent of the net increase in employment among the working-age went to immigrants, even though they accounted for just 38 percent of population growth among the working-age population.

Since the jobs recovery began in 2010, about half the employment growth has gone to immigrants. However the share of working-age natives holding a job has remained virtually unchanged since 2010 and the number of working-age natives without a job (nearly 59 million) has not budged.

The only jobs ObamaCare will create are government jobs. Well, maybe some low paying, part-time health care jobs (that used to be HIGH PAYING, FULL-TIME healthcare jobs). Will open up vast opportunities for fraud and corruption, though.

I live in Nevada. I don’t think we even have 14,000 persons in some of our Congressional Districts-—right now.

In Clark County- the majority of those are illegals. Who else would vote for Harry Reid?

Now start adding the number of new kids that will come across the border or will be born to new immigrants. No one talks about the impact on are already hard pressed schools and their budgets. The RATS would think it was great because they would want to higher a million new teachers who all pay does the RAT party.

After amnesty, just double the number of congressional districts. That would create even more jobs :)

Now that we found out that welfare pays better than many jobs pay, its obvious that we need these new ‘immigrants’ to do these jobs that Americans ‘wont do’ because get paid better to stay home and watch cable.

Until they learn of the scam and join the others. Drat, then we need another immigration bill.

Now I see the light.
