Immigration and Unemployment in Georgia

An Immigration Policy Center (IPC) Immigration Fact Check released late last month finds no evidence of a direct, negative relationship between employment levels for immigrants and native-born workers in Georgia. This Fact Check rebuts a recent report by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) that says the increase in the number of less-educated immigrant workers in Georgia between 2000 and 2006 caused employment levels among less-educated natives to decline. Instead, the evidence suggests that immigration generally has had positive effects for most native-born workers and that although employment levels among less-educated natives have declined, they have declined for reasons that have nothing to do with immigration.
