Illegals Are Outnumbering Unemployed Americans By How Much?

As Reported By Ali Meyer for the Washington Free Beacon:

The number of illegal immigrants in the United States totaled 11.3 million in 2014, outnumbering the 9.6 million Americans who were unemployed in the same year, according to data from Pew Research Center and the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

“An estimated 11.3 million unauthorized immigrants lived in the U.S. in 2014,” says a Pew report. “The new unauthorized immigrant total includes people who cross the border illegally as well as those who arrive with legal visas and remain in the U.S. after their visas expire.”

Of those 11.3 illegal immigrants, 8.1 million are participating in the labor force. “Unauthorized immigrants make up 5.1% of the U.S. labor force,” Pew says. “In the U.S. labor force, there were 8.1 million unauthorized immigrants either working or looking for work in 2012.”

In 2014, there were 1.7 million more illegal immigrants living in the United States than there were unemployed Americans. According to the BLS, the average number of unemployed Americans in 2014 was 9.6 million. The BLS defines an unemployed individual as someone who did not have a job but actively sought one in the past four weeks.

      Border Closed-Fine of $1,000,000.00 per day for Employers hiring undocumented Illegal Aliens, Execute the Murders/ Rapist by putting a bounty on their heads. Just found employment for he 9 mil unemployed citizens. We cannot use the fear factor on ISIS by using our military but I bet the fear factor would work if 9 mil citizens were bounty hunting.

    If you believe there are only 11.3 million illegals in this country, you must also believe in the Easter Bunny, and Obama’s unemployment statistics. We’ve been told, for a couple of decades now, that there are eleven million illegals in the US. The number never rises although millions more of them have continued to pour across the border, and many thousands more have reproduced children while in the country.
    Dollars to donuts, the number of illegal aliens is a lot closer to thirty million than eleven million.

    And Trump was mostly wrong when he said “Mexico is not sending us its best people” – because Mexico is not sending us Mexicans anymore. Despite their own draconian immigration laws and brutality with illegal immigrants, Mexico has basically opened up a pipeline from Central America to the US border, and is letting it flow freely with the human sewage of not 3rd, but 4th-world countries.
