Report: Almost 25 Million Foreigners Have Jobs in the USA

This is THE biggest reason why we have at least 20 million illegals here in the USA, employers don’t care if they’ve hired American citizens. A new report finds that 24,710,000 foreign-born people have jobs here in the USA.

Now not all this nearly 25 million foreign workers are illegals, granted. But this is a number higher than the whole populations of many countries, regardless!!

The number of foreign-born people employed in the U.S. dipped slightly in July but remained about three times higher than the number of unemployed native-born Americans, according to data released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

According to not-seasonally-adjusted numbers from the the BLS, 24,710,000 foreign-born people held jobs in the U.S. during the month of July — down slightly compared to June’s 24,816,000 level — and 1,369,000 foreign-born people were unemployed. The foreign-born unemployment rate also increased to 5.2 percent compared to 4.9 percent in June.

The foreign-born population also boasted an increase in its labor force participation rate from 64.7 percent in June to 65.0 percent in July. The number of foreign born people out of the workforce declined from 14,241,000 in June to 14,056,000 last month.

While its unemployment rate increased, the foreign-born population still fared better than their native counterparts, which saw an unemployment rate of 5.6 percent in July and a labor force participation rate of 62.8 percent. Further, there were 7,436,000 unemployed native born Americans and 78,293,000 native-born people not participating in the work force.

This is an incredible statistic, isn’t it?
