    More undocumented workers moving into management

    Jobs that undocumented immigrants hold.


    A growing number of undocumented immigrants are landing managerial positions. At the same time, fewer are doing jobs that require manual labor.

    Some 13% of undocumented immigrants had management or professional jobs in 2012, up from 10% in 2007, according to a new Pew Research Center report. Meanwhile, 29% held construction or production posts, suchas a food processor, garment worker or machinist, down from 34% in 2007.


    The transition reflects a shift within the undocumented population in recent years. More than six in 10 of these immigrants have been in the U.S. for a decade or longer, compared to just over three out of 10in 2003.






    That's because there have been more undocumented workers leaving the country than coming into it, especially since the Great Recession, when many job opportunities dried up. Since 2007, about one million undocumented workers have left the U.S., said Jeffrey Passel, senior demographer at Pew. There were some 11.2 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. in 2012.


    It's not surprising that some undocumented immigrants are taking on more responsibilities at workthe longer they stay in this country, Passel said. The most common managerial positions for these workers are in food service and farming and agriculture.


    Although it's illegal for undocumented immigrants to work in the U.S., many find ways to circumvent the rules. Some came here legally, but overstayed their work visa. Others use forged documents. Still others work off the books or as day laborers getting paid in cash. And some companies don't verify the information they receive.
    Still, the majority of undocumented immigrant workers continue to toil in agriculture,construction and hospitality. Also, they are more likely to hold low-skilled jobs than their native-born counterparts.
    For instance, some 62% held service, construction andproductionposts, twice the share of U.S.-born workers.


    And while undocumented immigrants are climbing the job ladder, they still lag behind those born in the U.S. Though13% of these immigrants were in management and professional jobs, some 36% of U.S.-born residents held these positions.
    Overall,the number of undocumented immigrants working or looking for employment has remained somewhat constant in recent years at 8.1 million. That's about 5.1% of the civilian labor force.
    Undocumented men were more likely to be in the workforce than their American-born counterparts, 91% vs 79%. But only 61% of undocumented women were in the workforce, compared to 72% of U.S.-born women.


    The Pew report also gives insights into where undocumented immigrant workers live and from which countries they come. Nevada had the highest share, at 10.2%, with California and Texas following at 9.4% and 8.9%, respectively.


    Just over half of undocumented immigrants were Mexican, with Salvadorans and Guatemalans next.
    Overall, undocumented immigrants made up 3.5% of U.S. residents and 26% of all immigrants.

    Pew Researcher: Rate of Illegal Immigrant Males in Workforce 12 Percent Higher Than U

    Pew Researcher: Rate of Illegal Immigrant Males in Workforce 12 Percent Higher Than US-Born Males

    WASHINGTON, DC — An illegal immigrant male residing in the United States is more likely to be gainfully employed than a male who is a legal immigrant or U.S.-born citizen, a senior demographer at the Pew Research Center think tank told lawmakers.

    In 2012, the most recent year for which data is available, an estimated 91 percent of illegal immigrant males were in the workforce. This compares to 84 percent of legal immigrant men and 79 percent of U.S.-born males, Pew Research Center demographer Jeffrey Passel wrote in testimony prepared for a March 26 hearing held by the Senate Homeland Security & Government Affairs Committee.

    Put in a different way, legal and illegal immigrant males had a better chance to be in the workforce than U.S.-born men in 2012.

    For women, the opposite is true. U.S.-born women are more likely to be in the labor force than immigrant females.

    “Unauthorized immigrant men of working age [16 years of age and older] are considerably more likely to be in the workforce than U.S.-born men (91% versus 79%),” Passel declared in his written testimony.

    “For women, the opposite is true; only 61% of unauthorized immigrant women are in the labor force, compared with 72% of U.S.-born women,” Mr. Passel continued.

    The data provided by the Pew demographer shows that U.S.-born females are more likely to be in the workforce than illegal immigrant women (61%) and legal immigrant women (68%), respectively.

    In 2012, there were an estimated 10 million more males (82. 3 million) participating in the workforce than women (72.7 million), according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

    Overall, there were an estimated 8.1 million workers who are not legally authorized to work, both men and women, participating in the labor force in 2012 by either working or looking for work. Illegal workers made up about 5.1 percent of the labor force, which translates to nearly one-in-twenty U.S. workers, explained Passel.

    The labor participation rate covers individuals working or looking for work.

    “Unauthorized immigrants are more likely than the overall U.S. population to be of working age and less likely to be young or older,” explained Mr. Passel. “That is one reason that the unauthorized immigrant share of the labor force is higher than its share of the population overall.”

    “While there have been some modest changes in labor force participation rates over the past 20 years, the participation of unauthorized immigrant men and women, relative to the U.S.-born population and legal immigrants, has remained essentially unchanged since 2005,” he added.

    The top three states with the highest share of illegal immigrants participating in the labor force are Nevada (10.2% of the workforce), California (9.4%), and Texas (8.9%), revealed the Pew Research Center.

    Most work in either the service, hospitality, or construction industry.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.
