Bushonomics in a nutshell

Edwin S. Rubenstein of VDARE.com continues to be the only person regularly covering what has to be the biggest economic story of the decade. On the VDARE blog he reports:

Hispanic employment rose 278,000, or by 1.46 percent in January, while non-Hispanic employment rose 17,000, or 0.01 percent....

Over the past five years - January 2001 through January 2006 – Hispanic employment rose by 3,226,000, or 20.0 percent, while non-Hispanic employment increased by 2,072,000, or 1.7 percent.

The government doesn't break out immigrants (much less illegal immigrants), so the Hispanic figure is the best proxy we have for the impact of immigration.
