NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- As the U.S. economy sheds jobs, concern is growing over competition between native-born and foreign-born workers.
At 61, I am certainly happy to be out of the job market! Job competition is tough enough without having to fight the competition presented by illegal workers willing to take jobs for less money and "looser" working conditions!

Immigrants' unemployment rate lower than that of native born - May. 1, 2008

Illegals do -- and they have the advantage since they can use whatever number of stolen identities they like. They can collect welfare benefits and work if they feel like it. One woman here was found using 4 separate identities, back in the 80s she was amnestied 4 times, and was using each one to collect welfare handouts.

The bad thing is that wages have dropped so much that many people including Americans work AND receive welfare handouts like food stamps and Medicaid, housing subsidies and so on.

I think the ratio is like 1 out of 3 illegal aliens is on the dole, which actually seems a little low to me.
