First full month of data after Covid-19 shutdown shows dramatic downturn in employment
An analysis of data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that both native-born Americans and immigrants suffered a massive increase in unemployment in April. With 18.2 million natives and 4.3 million immigrants unemployed, it is now especially difficult to justify the continued entry of new immigrants on the grounds of any "labor shortage".
This report examines how immigrants in the United States perform on international tests, with comparisons both to native-born Americans and to the broader Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The results indicate that the United States has failed to bring the achievement level of low-skill immigrants and their children up to parity with other Americans.
