    President Obama’s much-rumored executive order granting legal status to potentially millions of illegal immigrants will be “disastrous” to African-American job seekers and a slap in the face to others proceeding through the tedious legal immigration process, charges a member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.

    Peter Kirsanow, a black commissioner on the eight-member panel, warned in a letter (below) to Obama this week that giving legal status to undocumented workers will pave the way for them to take the few jobs that blacks, especially African-American men, need.

    “I write to remind you of the disastrous effect of illegal immigration on the employment of all Americans, but particularly black Americans,” he wrote to Obama.

    As the Obama administration mulls over granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, some commissioners are warning that such a move will be a job killer, especially for low-skilled African American workers.

    Not all eight members of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission agree that illegal immigrants are responsible for costing American workers as many as one million jobs.

    But Commissioner Peter Kirsanow is among those who believe enough evidence exists to support the conclusion. Undocumented workers take jobs away from low-skilled black workers, who as a group, Kirsanow says has been harmed more than any other.

    "It has a significant, deleterious impact on black wage and employment levels."
