”In a reflection of changes in the overall economy since the Great Recession, the U.S. unauthorized immigrant workforce now holds fewer blue-collar jobs and more white-collar ones than it did before the 2007-2009 recession, but a solid majority still works in low-skilled service, construction and production occupations, according to new Pew Research Center estimates.”
The important thing to see here is the massive infiltration of “unauthorized immigrant” workers into our job market! And, the vast majority work off the books, below the going wage, and do not pay taxes on their earned wages, not to mention how their children burden American citizen tax payers. This is how they compete with American citizen workers.
