Double

H/T One Old Vet

If the MSM were not so flagrantly biased on the immigration issue and the 2013 Amnesty/Immigration Acceleration bill, the CBO report The Economic Impact of S. 744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act would immediately be seen as a lethally double-edged sword for the Treason Lobby.

The bad news did appear briefly: Estimate shows wages would drop under Senate immigration bill, despite economic uptick  June 19, 2013 FoxNews.com

… a new analysis that shows …the average American wage would drop, and not recover for more than a decade…It would affect lower- and higher-skilled workers more than those in the middle of the spectrum.

(Take that, recent College graduates!)

Further, the changes would “cause the unemployment rate to be slightly higher for several years.”

Needless to say, Senator Jeff Sessions got it

"The wages of U.S. workers — which should be growing — will instead decline," Sessions, R-Ala., said. "It would be the biggest setback for poor and middle-class Americans of any legislation Congress has considered in decades."

The traditional Workerist Left has been saying this for some time. I am happy to be able to deploy a fine article I trying find a chance to cite since April:Comprehensive Immigration Bill is a Disaster for American Workers by Robert Oak The Economic Populist April 20, 2013

What a disastrous piece of legislation this is.  Whether one believes those here illegally deserve legal status, those here on foreign guest worker Visas for years deserve permanent legal residency or not, one cannot deny the massive negative impact this bill will have on U.S. workers.  We already have 12 million official unemployed, in reality 24 million needing a good job, the professional occupations unemployment rates are double what they should be, yet Congress, per the demands of corporations and special interests, are out to flood the labor market to the point of economic disaster.
