    Alabama's immigration reform AGAIN cuts unemployment:

    http://dailycaller.com/2012/01/20/alabamas-immigration-reform-again-cuts-unemployment/

    "Alabama’s unemployment rate continues to drop amid state-wide enforcement of a new immigration law, despite Democratic efforts to block and stigmatize the popular reform.

    December’s unemployment rate fell to 8.1 percent, down from 8.7 percent in November and 9.8 percent in September.

    “In the last three months alone, we’ve seen an unprecedented drop of 1.7 percentage points,” noted Alabama Republican Gov. Robert Bentley in a Jan. 20 statement.

    “Our rate is once again below the national average, and over 41,000 more Alabamians are employed now than at the beginning of the year… but we still have work to do,” said Bentley.

    ....."



    Oh but remember, they were just taking those jobs that Americans "don't want".

    This excerpt from the article is very important for people to understand:

    "In a complex economy, “it’s certainly plausible that immigration enforcement — and the subsequent drop in the number of illegals — enabled unemployed Americans to find work,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, a D.C. -based advocacy group.

    “Americans with the highest unemployment rates — young workers, less-educated workers, minority workers — are the ones facing the greatest job competition from illegal aliens, and thus would benefit the most from the departure of those illegal aliens,” he added."


    So let's dispense with the "racist" bullshit when talking about enforcing immigration laws.

    Keivan Deravi, an economist at Auburn University Montgomery, said, "[T]he state's declining rate has resulted from both more jobs and from unemployed people stopping their job searches, which means they drop out of the unemployment statistics. The December statistics showed more quitting their job searches than finding work." (emphasis added)
