Thread: Does Immigration Cost Jobs?

  1. #1
    Economists say immigration, legal or illegal, doesn't hurt American workers.

    Do immigrants take American jobs? It’s a common refrain among those who want to tighten limits on legal immigration and deny a "path to citizenship" — which they call "amnesty" — to the millions of immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. There’s even a new Reclaim American Jobs Caucus in the House, with at least 41 members.

    But most economists and other experts say there’s little to support the claim. Study after study has shown that immigrants grow the economy, expanding demand for goods and services that the foreign-born workers and their families consume, and thereby creating jobs. There is even broad agreement among economists that while immigrants may push down wages for some, the overall effect is to increase average wages for American-born workers.

    Yea, sure, and don't forget the Easter Bunny....illegal dirtbags cost jobs and wages, and the 'experts' opinions are funded by those businesses who want $2 an hour labor w/o benefits. Dirtbag illegals cost the American taxpayers millions in free medical care, free education for the illegal brats and car wrecks they cause and walk awawy from.

    That's a pretty harsh statement, S12. I'd like you to provide statistics to back it. There are plenty of worthless USCs. Maybe you're not seeing them in your area (?), but they are all over the place where I live. I'd prefer an honest illegal any day over an arrogant, scam-minded American who thinks a days wages is owed to him rather than earned. Think about it.
