The U.S. Census Bureau reported that noncitizen income rose 15 times faster than income of native U.S. workers in 2013. Non Citizen Income rose 6% while U.S. citizen workers rose .4%. The Census said income households led by foreign-born workers, which includes noncitizens and naturalized citizens, rose 1.7 percent over the same period of time, Almost four times higher than the increase for native born workers. It also stated that income had actually dropped for some native born households as cheaper foreign labor was imported.
Republicans have said for months that the Democrats Senate bill to ease immigration rules would make it much easier for noncitizens to find jobs, at the expense of U.S. citizens. The Census report seems to indicate that may already be happening, as it shows native U.S. household income was almost flat between 2012 and 2013, while income for foreign born residents substantially increased.
Meanwhile the Congressional Research Service released it’s report that was requested by the Senate Judicial Committee which reported that passing the Senate immigration bill in the house would lead to an increase in the population of foreign-born U.S. residents by 10 million above normal growth rates over the next eight years.
