80% of all newly created Jobs going to illegal Immigrants…. Hillary Clinton faces challenge: Black voters in Rust Belt… FLASHBACK: Donald Trump says unemployment is actually 40%

Two-thirds of those who have found employment under President Obama are immigrants, both legal and illegal, according to an analysis that suggests immigration has soaked up a large portion of what little job growth there has been over the past three years.
Shock report: All new jobs going to immigrants, not U.S.-born workers
Two-thirds of jobs go to immigrants during Obama’s four years
Researchers say legals and illegals are more mobile than natives in America
As depressing as the statistic sounds, the jobless rate was a lot higher in the 1970s.
Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is not predicated on the candidate’s mastery of or allegiance to facts.
His views on things like immigration or international trade are just not supported by any relevant statistics. So when The Donald called into CBS’ Face the Nation on Sunday and claimed that Americans are living in a “false economy,” where the unemployment rate is actually 40% rather than the 5.1% as reported by the Labor Department, you’d be forgiven for believing this was just another Trumpian whopper.
But actually, this view can be supported by actual statistics. If you use the broadest definition of unemployment, the ratio of people over the age of 16 with jobs to the overall 16-and-over population, the Labor Department says that 40.6% of the population is unemployed.
Hillary Clinton faces challenge: Black voters in Rust Belt
MILWAUKEE (AP) — This month has brought a new challenge for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign: Black voters in Rust Belt states aren’t as solidly behind her as they’ve been in the South.
It led to the Democratic front-runner’s surprise loss in Michigan, where about a third of black voters supported Bernie Sanders, and it nearly cost her Missouri, where African-Americans voted more like their counterparts across the Midwest than in the South. Now it could foreshadow vulnerability for Clinton in Wisconsin, the next Northern battleground primary.
What’s behind the trend? Exit polls conducted for The Associated Press and television networks by Edison Research reveal a possible answer:
Black voters up North have appeared more likely than black voters down South to say race relations in the U.S. have recently gotten worse. And while large majorities of African-Americans in both regions trust Clinton to handle the issue, those in the Midwest have been much more likely to say they trust Sanders.
Rust Belt blacks live closer to some of the major racial conflicts of recent years — the police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri; the police shooting death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice in Cleveland, Ohio; and the tainted water crisis in heavily black Flint, Michigan. And they are well positioned to turn out and express their dismay at the polls.
