Immigration up, household incomes down…how is that so great for the economy?

As reported by The Daily Caller on Thursday:

“Since 1970, the foreign-born population of the U.S. increased 325 percent,¬†the Congressional Research Service found, while wages for the bottom 90 percent of earners decreased by 8% and their share of income (decreased) by 16%.”

Yet we hear one Democrat politician after another claim illegal immigration is good for the economy…a sentiment parroted (of course) by their media lapdogs¬†legion.

So, logic dictates they’re speaking as being part of the top 10% of wage earners, qualified as earning over $114,000 per year.

Under a $114k threshold? Your wages dropped 8%, income share dropped 16%.

That’s why the bottom 90% aren’t cheering for illegal immigration any time soon.
