What matters is that their tax payments are only one-fourth that of other households, because of their low education levels, which result in low incomes and hence low taxes. He concludes that if illegal aliens were given amnesty and began to pay taxes and use services like households headed by legal immigrants with the same education levels, the estimated annual net fiscal deficit would increase from $2,700 per household to nearly $7,700, for a total net cost of $29 billion.

A 2006 study by Harvard economist George Borjas and colleagues from the University of Chicago and the University of California found that immigration reduces labor force participation of the least-educated black men. The authors estimate that immigration accounted for a 7.4 percentage-point decline in the employment rate of unskilled black males between 1980 and 2000. Even for black males with high school diplomas, immigration shrank employment by nearly 3 percentage points. While immigration hurts black and white low-wage workers, the authors note, the effect is three times as large on blacks because immigrants are more likely to compete directly with them for jobs.

A qualitative study by anthropologist Katherine Newman and Chauncy Lennon of fast food jobs in Harlem, found that immigrants are much more likely to get hired than are native-born black Americans. A case study of Los Angeles janitorial services cited in a Government Accounting Office showed that between the late 1970s and 1985, several small firms hired more Mexican janitors at low pay, prompting building owners to drop contracts with the companies that employed blacks in favor of the cheaper labor source. Industry wages slipped from a peak of $6.58 an hour in 1983 to $5.63 an hour in 1985. The number of black janitors in L.A. plummeted from about 2,500 in the late 1970s to 600 by 1985. Today, the city’s janitorial industry, like apparel manufacturing and hotel services, is almost entirely immigrant. Nearly all of South Central L.A. body-shop jobs are held by recent immigrants making $7 or $8 an hour.

Moreover, the evidence is consistent with simple logic. Legal and illegal immigrants are preponderantly employed in lower-skilled, lower-wage sectors of the economy, which exactly where significant share of native-born black men are employed. During recessions, this sector is usually hit hard, which adversely affects blacks even further, while at the same time increasing the pool of jobless immigrants with no visible means of support. As Camarata says, it is difficult to justify continuing high levels of legal and illegal immigration that disproportionately impact the bottom end of the labor market.

You lie, lie and lie-you told me that your most of your family are Nortenos meaning you are ghetto and ashamed of were you come from. Sadly for you, you aren't excepted with the whites nor you are excepted with the Mexicans due to your racism towards them and they know that-shame you don't fit no where hha ha ha.
I lie? Yes, a lot of my family are Nortenos and are ghetto and yes I'm ashamed of them because they give Mexicans a bad name. Lucky I didn't fall for that crap and got educated, got a good job and raising my kids in a good neighborhood away from the ghetto, away from the gang life, away from idiots like you. Sorry to disappoint you but that's the truth.

So you talk crap about your own race and your own family? Do they know that? I doubt it! and yes many of you anchor kids moved away from "the ghetto" and try so hard to be white but your true colors gives you up so easily. Sadly the few racist whites do not see the educated-Hispanic they only see color. Kind of like do not fit in any race-so sad so bad. But it's good that you move your kids from violence but bad for teaching to dislike their own backround.

No you keep injecting race, what a Racist asshole, how do you know I am White anyway ? Showing you true numbers on the extent of the Illegal Alien population and the Crime wave they bring, makes me White ?? Wow, you have really got a deep seated Racial hatred deep within.
Black Americans used to say the same thing for a long time, they don't say it anymore because they grew a pair of balls and pulled themselves up and started being responsible for their own actions, instead of whining like a bunch of puta's
I am not even White, a small portion of illegal aliens are my color... But Skin Color really is not the issue here at all. BUT that is all DULL WITTED imbeciles like you can see.
Oh here is something you might find interesting Little Puta whiner;
Ronald G CORWIN, Professor Emeritus
Department of Sociology, Ohio State University
Illegal immigration cultivates an underground economy that thrives on identity theft and human smuggling. In 2007, Latinos accounted for 40% of all sentenced federal offenders—up from 24% in 1991 and more than triple their share of the total U.S. adult population (13%); 72% of them are not U.S. citizens. Most were convicted of unlawfully entering or remaining in the U.S., but also by some estimates, they are 4.2 times more likely to be in prison for murder, and 5.8 times more likely to be in prison for felony drug crimes. Young Hispanics are 19 times more likely than young whites (and slightly more likely than young blacks) to be in youth gangs. Some commentators maintain that the crime rate for illegal immigrants is no higher than might be expected based on their numbers. That is beside the point. Crime increases with illegal immigration. Whether disproportionate or not, an impressive number of people in the country illegally—many repeat offenders— have been involved in crimes, many of them violent.
So again I make your stupid Puta bitch Ass look like the Dull Witted Imbecile you really are. DUH
look dude if you don't stop harassing me, I will report you for stalking and harassing me, a 16-year-old. Go throw your racist spew else where or go near the border, there you might get a response from an adult with real balls unlike your behind a monitor stalking, harassing under-age kids.

Yes, many millions can only get part time work and the millions looking for work but whose unemployment has run out are not counted as unemployed.
Add millions of crimmigrants allowed to compete for the jobs and they will get the jobs because they will still work for less.
The jobs they vacate to take the better jobs will be filled by the illegal aliens who will come to replace the ones getting amnesty.
The cycle will start all over, just like it did with the last amnesty.

Funny You keep saying no links, I keep putting in links... Duh! I guess you cant read, poor reading comprehension ?

I never brought Race into it , you did. My problem is with the illegal alien horde and the damage they are doing to our country.
They are less than 3% of the population yet my links to unbiased reports from the GAO show they make up 27% of all prisoners.
Other GAO reports none of which are from the 1900's (2003-2011)
show that Illegal Aliens average about 11 arrests per alien for about 13 offenses. Most are NOT immigration related. Most are Drug related or Violent Crimes or sex crimes.
My links also show that Illegal Alien Families in America are costing us BILLIONS in losses each year at the Federal and State level. Each Illegal alien Family has a federal net loss to the US of 2700 $ or Higher.

Why do you defend these Criminal assholes who are raping our children and Grandmothers and bankrupting the Country?

Oh and your Lame ass Argument about Europeans being Immigrants is partly true BUT you failed to recognize that "native American Indians" were also Immigrants to this land, they immigrated from SIBERIA across the land Bridge, before sea levels turned the bridge into a series of islands.

I am not harassing you I am giving you links and information you should have in order to form a more educated opinion, Instead you just scream RAcism and No links, even though I provide links and proof and never brought Race into the issue.

I am sorry that you are so Dull Witted that you cannot comprehend simply things.

Oh here is some of the proof I have already provided you, easy to find, you just don't look because you see Evil White men behind everything - keeping you down ....LOL

LOL ... Posting on Topix is not stalking

You are showing once again your poor level of comprehension and limited intellect. You Should be extremely embarrassed of such an outward display of Ignorance.

According to a 2002 report by the National Center for Victims of Crime, "Virtually any unwanted contact between two people [that intends] to directly or indirectly communicates a threat or places the victim in fear can be considered stalking"[1] although in practice the legal standard is usually somewhat stricter.
