Illegal Immigration

Immigrant men have higher rates of work than native-born men…  36 percent of immigrant-headed households used at least one major welfare program (primarily food assistance and Medicaid) compared to 23 percent of native households…  The children of immigrants account for one-third of all children in poverty…  29 percent of immigrants and their U.S.-born children (under 18) lacked health insurance, compared to 13.8 percent of natives and their children…  There are 10.4 million students from immigrant households in public schools, accounting for one in five public school students.

The Jobless Effect: The Toxic Mix of Illegal Immigration and Unemployment

… our badly broken immigration system needlessly worsens the circumstances of less-skilled workers.  We make it extremely difficult for employers to bring highly skilled immigrant workers to this country, but far too easy for them to hire low-skill immigrant workers (who are often in this country illegally).  Thus the very Americans already engaged in extreme competition with lower-skilled workers abroad are being subjected to further competition with lower-skilled immigrants at home.  Meanwhile, the wealthier Americans benefiting most from globalization are shielded from its effects on their own employment prospects.  This arrangement is clearly backward, and calls out for sensible reform.

A federal department ruled last week that the Forest Service violated a Spanish-speaking woman’s civil rights by calling the Border Patrol to help translate during a routine stop, saying it was ‘humiliating’ to Hispanics and an illicit backdoor way to capture more illegal immigrants…  The case stems from a 2011 incident in Olympic National Forest in Washington in which a Forest Service officer encountered a Hispanic couple who he said appeared to be illegally harvesting plants on the federal lands… when a Border Patrol agent arrived, the couple fled.
