Somehow I seriously doubt that.

Of all of the employees my company has hired, only one was an immigrant.  He also became a US citizen while working for us.  He was hired for one simple reason, he was the best applicant for the job.

You did see where it says net increase and legal immigrant didn't you?

It did not say Every hire or All illegals.

Since I've been there, we've had a net increase of 5 employees.  It would have been a lot more, but we lost everyone in Oklahoma when we lost one of our biggest clients due to some underhanded dealings (the school board president steered the new contract to a company run by his brother-in-law) and the other basically stopped buying all AV and IT products due to budget cuts.  Since we never did non-gov/edu business in Oklahoma like we do in Texas, that pretty much killed our business up there.

That said, I still do not think that every new job has gone to either an immigrant or illegal.
