The linked article below discusses employment trends in Florida which are often similar to New Mexico which also has lots of legal and illegal immigrants seeking work, and a high unemployment picture. The article says that the majority of job growth created in the U.S. in general, and Florida in particular, has gone to immigrants, legal and illegal.
Contrary to what you might think, immigrants are not just taking low end jobs (maintenance and construction) but they have also moved into middle end jobs (sales and office support), and high end jobs (management and health care). There are plenty of qualified native born citizens to take the jobs, but the jobs are going to immigrants.
Politicians and businesses continue to push for more immigration even though they are aware of the fact that there are plenty of qualified native born citizens available in the work force.
The entire article makes one wonder.
Why are immigrants, legal and illegal, getting the jobs and why aren’t those elected to represent their constituents doing more to match up jobs with local people?
It makes you wonder about allowing illegal immigration, as an official Federal government policy, in a new light?
In a trend of higher unemployment, fewer jobs due to technology and outsourcing, why are we allowing a mass influx of non-citizens and allowing them to stay and work?
Job growth is slow and unemployment is up. To whom do politicians owe their first allegiance – native U.S. citizens, or persons who have come into the country without authorization.
We have to think it is all about money, all about profit, all about votes, all about negligence.
