Immigration and American Jobs

The Pew Hispanic Center yesterday released a research report on the growth of the foreign-born population on employment of native-born workers, and concluded that immigrants do not adversely effect native-born job opportunities. The Washington Post printed a brief overview of the document, and notes that some economists note that the study does not adequately address issues of age, gender and education on the job prospects of American workers.

You have only repeated the headline here, the story contains a statement from Andrew Sum of Northeastern U., who states that the immigrant workforce has a profound effect on jobs for the 16- 24 year old americans, apparently these people are ignored in your statement. No clear correlation can be seen? Why can Mr. Sum find a pattern?
