I’ve known of an organization called Numbers USA that seeks to have immigration reform. My years of following their efforts allows me to conclude they are well rounded. Today they posted:
“It’s bad enough that 20 million Americans can’t find a full-time job, but it’s downright horrendous that one in four Hispanic Americans live in poverty — that’s 2 million more than impoverished black Americans. On top of this, Hispanic American’s U6 unemployment rate is 19%.”
Then they ask, Why are our elected officials putting up with this unjust tragedy? I ask why are we the people not doing more to restore our citizens to work?
Numbers USA also reported, “The competition with new immigrants for jobs tends to be fiercest for Hispanic Americans who are under 30 and without a college degree. The broad unemployment rate is about 28% for those with a high school degree, 40% for those without a degree and 45% for teens trying to enter the world of productive work. Hispanic Americans lucky enough to have a job are more likely to be in occupations with stagnant or declining real wages.”
It seems our elected officials are tending to back legislation that would put even more Hispanic Americans out of work. If you want to be a part of the solution, I suggest you visit www.numbersusa.com You can learn more and become part of the effort to restore American workers.
