How Illegal Immigration Affects American Jobs

Home » Immigration Help & Resources » How Illegal Immigration Affects American Jobs

Of all of the economic factors that affect the American middle class, immigration might seem as the easiest to explain and blame. Many people believe that as millions of poor immigrants from Latin America and Central America poured in the United States illegally, they sought after work, and this was direct competition with the more expensive American workers, displacing them from their jobs and undercut their wages.

This notion of immigration helped propel a surge in the Border Patrol budgets over the last two decades, in order to enforce the borders and stop immigrants from making their way in. The idea was the rationale for proposals to build a long and tall fence along the Southern border. But, the explanation and ideology that explained the impact of immigration was mostly wrong.

Researchers have spent years analyzing data that supports the belief that immigrants undercut lesser educated Americans in the job market. The latest empirical study concluded that immigrants’ impact on the job market was slight, and they confirm that immigration as a whole has not led to fewer jobs for American workers. More significantly, the studies show that immigrants have had a miniscule negative impact on wages for Americans who directly compete with them, those with a high school degree or less.

US Immigration Bonds reports that the research also found that immigrants, including the poor and uneducated ones, are actually having a positive impact on the economy in the long run, by boosting the profitability of American firms, lowering the costs of some products and services since they provide employers with a new labor source, and they create more opportunities for investment and jobs. The wave of immigrants in recent years has had a small, yet positive impact on American wages by lifting the overall economy. If these immigrants are hurting anyone, it is the immigrants who came before them who were a direct competition in the job market.

Expert immigration bonds in California know that these results seem farfetched, but if you actually think about it, the conclusions become obvious. The belief that immigrant workers displace American workers relies on the assumption that employers would completely replace a domestic work force with less expensive immigrant workers, which is highly unlikely for many reasons. Americans are more likely to be more fluent in English and better equipped to operate with upper management and customers. Most of the time, more profitable job opportunities became available since there would be a necessity for an American worker to supervise immigrant workers.

Faced with a new pool of workers, companies would often invest in a more skilled American worker to reap the higher profits that the new cheaper labor allows for. Employers would now be able to take on projects that previously would not have been profitable, since they were paying higher wages to domestic workers. In other words, immigration can create domestic jobs and increase productivity, which trickles down to increased revenue.

Professional, seasoned immigration bail bonds specialists in the United States have come to find that over the long run, lesser skilled American workers are likely to benefit from migrating immigrants.

Jeremy Wolf and his agency have been a terrific resource for me as I delve into this foreign world of bonding a friend out of jail so he and his wife can work on his case on the "outside." Jeremy has been unfailingly polite and informative and his video regarding how to complete the necessary forms was a valuable tool too. The entire process was quick and relatively easy. I especially appreciated not having to deal with a jaded, impatient, figure--it-out-yourself kind of person when I was treading in really unfamiliar territory. My questions were always answered quickly and efficiently.I highly recommend this company in your time of need for quick, efficient and professional service with no attitude or delay.read more

Jeremy Wolf, is compassionate and understanding. He has been there and done it with his own family, and together with his wife they dedicate their time and energy into helping other families come together. I know this because my husband was taken by ICE and his bond was set much higher than I could have imagined, having in my hands at any given time. ... With Jeremy, his wife and the rest of the team we were able to piece together the required 80% and set up a affordable and convient payment plan. It was a grueling process, at times I felt like I was going to loose all my hair, as I ran around selling homemade tamales, and had various other fund raisers going on, along with my husband being detained, I lost my home, my dog and my daughter and I pushed forward with the help and support of Jeremy and his team, if It wasn't for there hours of help and dedication, to put a previous bond for my nephew into action to help my husband, we wouldn't have been able to have him home for the Holidays. ... To Jeremy, Veronica, and Amber, who I spoke with often, and the other parts of the team who I was unable to catch their names, I THANK YOU, FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!read more
