OOPS - Maybe the Immigration Hardliners will Want to Retract This Study

The Center for Immigration Studies is often on tv and presented as some non partisan think tank. That of course is utter nonsense. It is a tool of the John Tanton groups. They have a new study out today called The Impact of New Immigrants on Young Native-Born Workers, 2000-2005. Let me say the study is deeply flawed as usual. They say "Over the 2000-2005 period, immigration levels remained very high and roughly half of new immigrant workers were illegal. This report finds that the arrival of new immigrants (legal and illegal) in a state results in a decline in employment among young native-born workers in that state.

Despite the flaws a question here is left out in the air. Currently the US Unemployment national rate fell to 4.7 percent in August from 4.8 percent in July. IF half the new Jobs were taken by immigrants(legal or illegal) who in the heck would replace them? Sounds like this is a reason we need a sound guest worker program that is reviewed on a quarterly basis.
