Supporters of allowing illegal aliens to remain in the United States have long claimed that illegals only work in menial labor jobs that most Americans would not work at so they fill vital niche. Illegals supposedly work mostly in farming and services related jobs.
If these arguments are true, then how do these supporters of illegals explain the fact that the unemployment rate in Alabama dropped 1.1% in the first two months of passing strict immigration laws? Thousands of illegals left the state and evidently many residents were able to find jobs, causing the unemployment rate to drop. If illegals only took jobs that American citizens refuse to take, then how else do they explained this?
According to a new report from the folks at Pew Research Center, illegals are starting to fill more professional type jobs than the common perception portrays. Pew Reports:
“In a reflection of changes in the overall economy since the Great Recession, the U.S. unauthorized immigrant workforce now holds fewer blue-collar jobs and more white-collar ones than it did before the 2007-2009 recession…”
“…The number of unauthorized immigrants in management or professional related jobs grew by 180,000, while the number in construction or production jobs fell by about 475,000, mirroring rises and declines in the overall U.S. economy. The share of all unauthorized immigrant workers with management and professional jobs grew to 13% in 2012 from 10% in 2007, and the share with construction or production jobs declined to 29% from 34%.”
“Unauthorized immigrants made up 5.1% of the nation’s labor force in 2012, numbering 8.1 million who were working or looking for work.”
It seems that the longer illegals stay in our country and are educated by our tax dollars the more better paying jobs they are acquiring. This also indicates that many American citizens are having to compete with illegals for these better paying jobs and obviously losing that competition.
Barack Obama is now planning on giving them valid driver’s licenses and work permits to allow them to stay longer and take more better paying jobs from American citizens. With their driver’s licenses they’ll be able to illegally register to vote and change the course of America’s future.
Illegal aliens are a cancer that has been growing in our nation and is now reaching the point where they could prove to be fatal to our way of life. If we don’t cut the cancer out now it will soon be too late. That’s why it’s so important for our nation to enforce our immigration laws and deport every illegal from OUR nation.
