Congressman Lamar Smith of Texas, a co-chair of the Reclaim American Jobs Caucus and Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement regarding the findings:

Representative Smith: “Texans should not have to compete with illegal immigrants for scarce jobs. Unfortunately, because the Obama administration refuses to enforce our immigration laws, out of work Texans are suffering. Worksite enforcement efforts have fallen dramatically since President Obama took office—administrative arrests are down 79% from 2008, criminal arrests are down 62%, and convictions are down 70%. That means it is easier for illegal immigrants to keep jobs that rightly belong to U.S. citizens and legal immigrant workers.”

This is happening nationwide. We now have close to 30 million unemployed and underemployed citizens, while we have untold millions of illegal aliens working in EVERY industry in this country. No other country would tolerate this BS. The UE extensions have prevented an uprising. When they end, watch out!

On top of the current situation we have the Dreamies and their supporters who want to grant instant legal residency to over 1.5 million EDUCATED (at OUR expense) students who will gain entry into the legal workforce. As it is you only have to read some of their posts on the portal to see how many are ALREADY working in jobs they have ZERO right to.
