[Ed. – The system is rigged against the native-born now, because the native-born have to be employed under ALL federal and state regulations that impact employment. Immigrants don’t. If we want to fix this problem, the first thing we need to do is roll back a lot of regulations that most Americans don’t even know we have. If you’re native-born, those regulations increasingly make you too expensive to employ today.]
According to the monthly Bureau of Labor Statistics numbers just released, “foreign-born” jobs numbers increased by 14,000, while those for “native-born” Americans fell off a cliff, by 262,000.
Over the past three months, the job numbers for native-born have dropped by nearly 1 million, exactly the number of jobs President Obama promised to add when he ran for re-election in 2012.
During that period, jobs for immigrants grew 218,000.
