In particular, Hannity cited recent jobs data to show immigration is killing job creation for native-born Americans and restricting wage growth for most American workers.

Hannity said, “I look into the job gains, that we heard last week was an abysmal month, anyway according to the monthly Bureau of Labor Statistics, they actually break down demographically foreign-born job numbers, in other words, foreigners, people that are not citizens. Well, last month, those numbers increased by 14,000. Native-born Americans, American citizens, fell off a cliff. They lost 262,000 jobs. Over the last three months, the job numbers for native-born Americans has dropped by nearly 1 million, exactly the number of jobs that Obama promised to add when he ran for re-election in 2012. By the way, during that same period, well, immigrants, not citizens, their jobs grew by 218, Jeff Sessions, he says it’s time to hit the brakes on the radical pace of immigration. You think? I think that’s a good idea. Let’s hit the brakes on this. Let’s stop this before it gets really out of control.”
