Immigrants Dont Contribute to High Unemployment Rate

Sing Tao Daily, Posted: May 20, 2009

NEW YORK - A recent study by the Immigration Policy Center shows that immigrants have nothing to do with the current high unemployment rate. The Sing Tao Daily reports the findings attested its wrong to blame immigrants for taking job opportunities away from U.S. citizens. The unemployment rates among native-born Americans in cities with higher percentages of immigrants are about the same or even lower
than those in places with fewer immigrants. Researchers say the findings are not surprising because
new immigrants make up only 5.4 percent of the workforce in the country, which is too small to have a significant impact on the overall job market.
