The article presents information about Washington D.C.-based Center for Immigration Studies' March 2006 report "Dropping Out: Immigrant Entry and Native Exit from the Labor Market, 2000-2005," authored by the center's director of research Steven Camarota. The report indicates that the country has no shortage of native-born, less-educated workers qualified to take the types of lower-paying jobs available in the environmental sector. Figures from 2005 show 3.8 million unemployed citizens with a high school degree or less, and another 19 million not in the labor force.
