Although any decision could be appealed, enforcing the no-match rule would probably cost an estimated 97,500 undocumented workers in Oregon their jobs. An additional 76,000 documented workers also would lose their jobs in roughly the first year because of economic impacts, says Oregon State University economics professor William Jaeger.

In the short term, employment would drop 7.7 percent and statewide annual production would fall by $17.7 billion, Jaeger says. Additionally, employers would have a difficult time filling jobs vacated by undocumented workers because documented workers tend to be more educated and have higher salary and benefits expectations, Jaeger's study says.

Though the study looks at Oregon's revenue loss, it does not calculate the current cost of providing public services to undocumented immigrants. Jaeger said that would require a more in-depth analysis that was beyond the scope of his study

I'm kinda confused.

So, if they were to enforce this 'no-match rule' ,all the illegal immigrants would lose their jobs? How does that happen?

Dosen't that also mean that they would disappear from the entire state all together?

I am trying to figure out how they jumped on the idea that 97,500 illegal immigrants lose their job and the unemployment rate would go up? Does unemployment imply that they can withdraw unemployment checks? When did illegal immigrants get to withdraw unemployment checks? Can anyone confirm? Or is this part of Big Business trying to protect themselves by making ridiculous half-truth claims?

Can they obtain unemployment checks with the stolen/borrowed SS numbers even though the EVerify catches them?

If it costs that much, they need a new system.

This is what Jaeger means...

Less illegals would mean less burden on social services...very true...less crime for sure...a drop in population for sure. All good things...but he is right...

Less people going to the hospital means nurses lose jobs...cops lose work when the population decreases...schools cut teachers and so on...

It would be a benefit the schools to lose a bunch of illiterate students...no doubt....at least in terms of standardized testing scores...but the schools are not going to keep a 17/1 student ratio when it was 27/1...they are simply going to cut positions...which means unemployment...and so on.
