Immigrants' Job Picture Brighter Under Obama Than For the Native Born

There are 15 comments on the www.numbersusa.com story from Oct 7, 2012, titled Immigrants' Job Picture Brighter Under Obama Than For the Native Born. In it, www.numbersusa.com reports that:

Under the Obama Administration, immigrants have fared better at finding jobs than the native born. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data indicate that as of August 2012, over 1.7 million immigrants found jobs during Obama’s term while only 418,000 native-born Americans did.

According to the BLS’ monthly household survey, immigrants garnered about three out of every four jobs added since January 2009 even though they are only one-sixth of the workforce. Between August 2011 and August 2012, immigrants won one out of every three newly-added jobs. During that period, native-born Americans gained 1.436 million new jobs, while immigrants acquired 788,000.

Judging from your lack of grasp of the English language, the only job you could get would be very low paying, menial labor.

It just proves immigrants are by far harder and better workers. Republicans want to deport these hard workers.

Immigrants fare better at finding a job because they will do the jobs that Americans will not do.

Yes but you pay taxes, support your children, pay for healthcare and do not receive government entitlements. At the end of the day Juan has more money to spend on beer, drugs, and future baby momas than you do.
