Mass immigration is hurting unemployment, wages, and even our middle class

Immigration Activists and Concerned Citizens,

As I have said, mass immigration is not the root cause of all of our problems, however it is making all of our problems in the USA much worse. The data below speaks to this comment.

The U-6 unemployment rate in North Carolina is near 10%. It is a more encompassing point of data by the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics. The recent report by Pew Research shows median household income fell 8% nationwide between 1999 and 2014, as our middle class in the USA is shrinking.

Of the 25 metros that suffered the worst, the population grew 20% faster than the U.S. population over the 15-year span. Many of those areas also experienced the highest increases in the nation in its foreign-born population over the same period. Yes, Econ 101 does apply and adding each year one million legal immigrants with an additional 400,000 net illegal immigrants continuing to either cross our borders or come here with short term visas and never leave, worker oversupply continues to lower wages and cause citizens to lose jobs just as the U.S. Chamber and N.C. Chamber of Commerce know and continue to push for more foreign labor.
