Ninety two million Americans have left the workforce. Another 50 million live below the poverty line. One-in-five American households are on food stamps. Household income is down 4.4% since the so-called recovery began in 2009. Only 74,000 jobs were created last month, and America remains mired in the weakest economic recovery since the Great Depression.
The bipartisan “solution” for these problems steadily gaining steam in Washington? Comprehensive immigration reform that will heighten the competition for jobs between newly legalized immigrants and Americans workers struggling to find employment.
