A new report claims that all net employment growth in the United States, since 2000 has gone entirely to immigrants - both legal and illegal. Those are the findings of the Center for Immigration Studies, or CIS. The report utilized data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Immigrants have made gains across the labor market, including lower-skilled jobs such as maintenance, construction, and food service; middle-skilled jobs like office support and health care support; and higher-skilled jobs, including management, computers, and health care practitioners.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - There were 127,000 fewer working-age natives holding a job in the first quarter of 2014 than in 2000, while the number of immigrants with a job was 5.7 million above the 2000 level. These were the findings as presented by CIS scholars Steven A. Camarota and Karen Zeigler.
Overall, immigrants recovered far more substantially from the Great Recession of 2008. Immigrants also held a disproportionate share of jobs relative to their share of population growth before the recession.

According to the report, the U.S. native-born population grew significantly while the number of those working actually fell. There were 17 million more working-age natives not working in the first quarter of 2014 than in 2000.
The share of U.S.-born employees working or looking for work, referred to as labor force participation, shows the same decline as the employment rate. Labor force participation has continued to decline for working-age natives even after the jobs recovery began in 2010.
In contrast, immigrants have made gains across the labor market, including lower-skilled jobs such as maintenance, construction, and food service; middle-skilled jobs like office support and health care support; and higher-skilled jobs, including management, computers, and health care practitioners.
There is an enormous pool of laborers to draw upon in the U.S. There are 8.7 million native college graduates are not working, as are 17 million with some college, and 25.3 million with no more than a high school education.
According to the study, 58 million working-age U.S.-born citizens are currently unemployed.
Three conclusions were drawn from the report:
The long-term decline in the employment for natives across age and education levels is a clear indication that there is no general labor shortage, which is a primary justification for the large increases in immigration in the Schumer-Rubio bill and similar House proposals.
Second, the decline in work among the native-born over the last 14 years of high immigration is consistent with research showing that immigration reduces employment for natives.
Last, the trends since 2000 challenge the argument that immigration on balance increases job opportunities for natives. Over 17 million immigrants arrived in the country in the last 14 years, yet native employment has deteriorated significantly.
