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 says that 22.4 million immigrants of working age held jobs at the beginning of 2013, 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 that 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.” Whether immigrants compete for jobs is a heated topic — though the Senate all but ignored it during the chamber’s debate on its bill to legalize most illegal immigrants and create opportunities for new immigrants and temporary workers to enter the United States. The outlines of those programs are coming into view. The Congressional Budget Office calculated that boosts in immigration and guest-worker programs would add about 12 million new people to the United States in 2023, in addition to millions of illegal immigrants who would gain legal status and work permits.

I don't know why so many conservatives laud Ronald Reagan to the heavens. He's the one who granted the illegals the first amnesty -- setting the precedent. Immigration was high before Reagan, but it soon turned into an absolute flood of third world immigrants after Reagan and his amnesty.

So I don't understand why so many conservatives admire him.

Much worse than MLK federal holiday bill, Reagan signed the Jew Commie Noahide Laws. The Noahide Laws were the laws of the Jew Soviet Union. The legal "justification" to murder Christians.

Reagan also opened up the US to hundreds of thousands of Jew Commies from the erstwhile Soviet Union. The Jew criminals came pouring into the US because of Reagan.

These Jew criminals; The Jew criminal commie immigrants were given $100,000 a piece, plus free social services -- the whole gamut of welfare -- plus one hundred thousand dollars a piece. Plus, many of them came here with millions of dollars in stolen loot from the Russian people. They also got 100,000 dollars a piece.

Reagan opened the US up to the Jew Russian Mafia basically, When you hear "Russian Mafia", Translate : "Jew mobsters from Russia". Jew mobsters Reagan let into the country.

And he knew fully well he was letting die-hard, intense, murderous mobsters into the USA.

May he rot in hell unto eternity, in the lowest and most putrid pit of hell, and may the jews in hell stab in the back unto eternity.

May all the conservatives who know all the above --i.e. Mormons and Shriners -- who know all the above, yet smirk in our faces as they laud Reagan to the heavens -- may they go rot in f*ckin hell with Reagan and the jews.

More on the Noahide Laws and the New World Order :

Reagan was all about the Fortune 500 and Federal Reserve bankers. Reagan was a Freemason Shriner.

In this Reagan was a true conservative, supporting these hard working people who loved America so much they risked a lot to come here.

We know the jew Communist mobsters risked a lot to come here because they came here with hundreds of millions of dollars of stolen loot from the Russian people, plus Ronald Reagan gave them A Hundred-Thousand Dollars A Piece, free social services, and signed their Jew Talmud Commie Noahide Laws.

How touching, how moving. How precious. How "conservative".
