It's going to be even tougher if they're here illegally. As a matter of fact, that sounds like the real problem here.

The findings show that immigrants have been harder hit by the recession than natives. Although data on immigrants is collected, it is generally not published by the government. This report is one of the few to examine this data.

The report, entitled, 'Trends in Immigrant and Native Employment,' is embargoed until Wednesday midnight, for publication on Thursday, April, 30. Advance copies are available to the media. The study will be available online at: www.cis.org.

Immigrant Unemployment At Record High

Well gee, since they are no longer "doing the jobs Americans won't do", why prey tell aren't they being weened from the tax payers' teet, and being rounded up and deported?
Good question. Hell, we all know they are here to vote for Dems and to steal even more of our resources and government freebies that they have no right to.

Well, the millions of unemployed illegal Mexicans aren't going to self deport, for the time being anyway, because our naive, inexperienced, inept and unbelievably arrogant new Prez has promised to push for amnesty in 2009. Amnesty will ruin the US and it won't even stop illegal immigration. However, adding the new Democratic voter bloc of amnestied illegals will ensure a Democratic majority for many years to come. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Obama will quietly arrange something to entice them to stay. And once again, he will have the illegal vote.

The result is they have a harder time getting hired in comparison to the white native born Americans they are competing against.
Maybe where you are that's true but here in Minnesnowjob they don't have to speak any English to get hired over native English speaking Americans....AND lots and lots of them have NO intention of adjusting to American culture of any kind.

I WISH it was like where you are...they SHOULD have harder time!
I have worked for 45 years and every job application asked me if I spoke English...and it was required...for me.

It's called being part of the problem when they help get them hired.

Seems like they might do better back over in Mexico these days. We've shipped half of our factories over there, after all. Hershey's Chocolate might be hiring.
