663,000 U.S. Jobs Lost in March -- 138,000 More Foreign Workers Given Work Permits -- White House & Media Noticing?

For months of shouting the numbers (jobs lost and foreign workers imported), we couldn't seem to get any news media to mention American unemployment in the same stories that talked about immigration policy proposals. It was as if the journalists of America couldn't grasp (or weren't allowed by their cheap-labor-loving publishers to grasp) that immigration numbers are directly related to labor force issues.

But while hundreds of thousands more Americans were losing their jobs in March and another 138,000 foreign workers were allowed to take U.S. jobs, we began seeing more and more media including in their immigration stories that the unemployment situation might make it difficult to pass "comprehensive immigration reform" this year. FULL STORY.
