Study: 75% of New American Jobs Since 2019 Have Gone to Illegal Aliens

A new study shows that the majority of new jobs created in the United States since 2019 have gone to foreigners, including illegal aliens, who have replaced native-born Americans in the job market.

As reported by Breitbart, the study was published by Steven Camarota at the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS). The report reveals that 75% of American jobs have gone to foreigners, both legal and illegal since 2019; in the same period, less than one million American citizens have joined the workforce.

“The government’s household survey shows that there were only 971,000 more U.S.-born Americans employed in May 2024 compared to May 2019 prior to the pandemic, while the number of employed immigrants has increased by 3.2 million,” said Camarota.

The workforce participation for working-age American men has declined significantly in recent years. In 1960, the percentage of American men in the workforce between the ages of 25 and 54 was 95.7%. In 2024, that percentage is currently 81.6%. A similar drop has been recorded among American men without a bachelor’s degree, from 95.8% in 1960 to 84.8% in 2024.

“The labor force participation rate — the share working or looking for work — has declined dramatically among U.S.-born men since the 1960s, particularly for those without a bachelor’s degree,” Camarota continues. “While labor force participation among these groups has roughly returned to pre-pandemic levels, the rate in 2024 remains at or near historical lows relative to other peaks in the business cycle. This is true even for U.S.-born men who are in the ‘prime’ 25-54 age range for working.”

Although Joe Biden and the Democrats have frequently touted the apparent increases in the job market, the true numbers reveal how little of this job growth benefits American citizens. In 2023, 300,000 Americans left the workforce while at least 637,000 illegals joined the workforce.

Since Biden took office, the immigrant population has exploded due to his open-borders approach to immigration policy. Currently, the foreign-born population of the United States is at a staggering 51.6 million, meaning 3 in every 19 people in the U.S. today were born in a foreign nation. This marks the absolute highest foreign-born population in the country’s history.
