Judiciary Committee Republicans examined enforcement data and the impact of illegal immigration on American jobs at a forum entitled, "American Jobs in Peril: The Impact of Uncontrolled Immigration."



Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) discussed the impact high immigration levels have on the American workforce and suggests immediate action by Congress to review current policy.

Not only do they take jobs from Americans, they speak very badly of U.S. citizens. They think they have more right to have a job than citizens do.Ask how many of them would serve in the military- most WOULD NOT. I think amnesty should ONLY be given to those who serve in the Armed Forces!

If it takes 11 yrs to close the gap for jobs to pre-recession status, i would say we are in a world of hurt! Something has to be done RIGHT NOW about "ALL" immigration in order for American citizens to survive ! What is wrong with the nuts in Washington who can't seem to do BASIC MATH !! I CAN'T PAY TAXES IF I DON'T WORK !!!

Naomi: "What is wrong with the nuts in Washington?" They are being paid-off by lobbies like La Raza that are partly funded by the U.S. government. That's your tax money at work.
