Wonder why unemployment stayed so high for so long?

Remember: at this writing, the true unemployment rate is 12.6%.


As I claimed at the time, in real terms, allowing illegal aliens into the workforce has artificially deflated the bogus unemployment rate.

I believe that, like so many other elements of government, the scum bag in the White House is lying.

Obama Quietly Adds 5.46 Million Foreigners To Economy

President Barack Obama has quietly handed out an extra 5.46 million work permits for non-immigrant foreigners who arrived as tourists, students, illegal immigrants or other types of migrants since 2009, according to federal documents released by a Freedom of Information Act request. 
“The executive branch is operating a huge parallel work-authorization system outside the bounds of the [immigration] laws and limits written by Congress [and which] inevitably reduces job opportunities for Americans,” said Jessica Vaughan, the policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies, while filed the FOIA request. 
“The true magnitude of how often he has evaded the limits set by Congress on foreign workers has never been known until now,” she told The Daily Caller. 
“If Congress wants to take back control of our immigration system, it needs to control the issuance of work permits, which have been the vehicle for Obama to get around the [legal] limits on immigration and work visas imposed by Congress,” she said. 
On Tuesday, senators will vote for or against a budget measure that would sharply limit Obama’s ability to award another five million work permits to illegals via the Department of Homeland Security. Obama promised to hand out the next five million work permits as part of his unpopular November 2014 executive amnesty, which also largely ends efforts to repatriate the 12 million illegals living in the United States. 
Fewer than 10 percent of Americans want a greater flow of immigrants, according to a new Gallup poll
If Obama’s November amnesty survives court review and weak opposition from GOP leaders, he’ll have added more foreign workers than jobs to the economy since 2009. 
Obama’s aides claim he has added 10 million jobs to the economy since 2009. 
But Obama’s quiet award of five million work permits, plus his November amnesty, will have added roughly 10 million foreign workers to the economy by the end of 2015. The influx adds to the normal inflow of 1 million immigrants per year and the standing population of 2 million white-collar and blue-collar guest workers.

Imagine how much more money the government would have without the burden of, at a minimum, the social service needs for 18 million illegal aliens.

Imagine how much faster our economy would have recovered.

Imagine how many millions would not have simply given up if those jobs had been available to Americans, paid American wages.

I love my country.

But I loathe its government.
