Initial reports said that as many as 800,000 to 1 million people would be eligible to receive work permits from Obama.
But those figures would only be applicable if the DREAM Act passed but unlike that act, President Obama does not require college graduation. It means that as many as 2 to 3 million illegal aliens are now eligible to get work permits. (source: FOX News)
Now I ask you a simple question. How are Americans expected to get a job if there are 2-3 million illegals with work permits?
Illegals have so many advantages in getting jobs:
- they are willing to work for less money
- they do not have the same expectations of benefits
- they are willing to work in the worst of conditions
- they could be taken advantage of by employers
Before the executive order, these illegals would have had to work under the table but now they are going to be free to roam about.
According to the BLS, there are around 12 million unemployed Americans. Good luck finding a job now.
