Immigrant Workers Grew By 1.9 Million in November 2022 Compared to 2019

According to a recent report by Center of Immigration Studies researcher director Steven A. Camarota and demographer Karen Zeigler,  there are now 1.9 million more legal and illegal aliens in the workforce than prior to the pandemics. These immigrant aliens were referred to as “foreign-born” in government data. 

Some of the findings in the CIS study included: 

  • In November 2022, there were 29.6 million immigrants (legal and illegal combined) actively working in the United States. This was 1.9 million more than in November 2019, prior to the outbreak of the Wuhan virus pandemic.
  • By contrast, there were 2.1 million fewer U.S.-born Americans in the workforce in November 2022 than in November 2019.
  • Overall, there has been a long-term decline in the labor force participation rate — the percentage of working-age (16-64) individuals working or looking for work — among U.S.-born Americans, especially among individuals without a bachelor’s degree.
  • In November of 2022, there were 44.9 million working-age U.S.-born Americans outside of the labor force — a figure that is roughly 10 million higher than in 2000.

As for the foreign-born population, several figures stood out:

  • The total legal and illegal immigrant or foreign-born population — workers and non-workers combined — stood at 48.4 million in November 2022 — a new record number in American history. This figure is 3.4 million more than the numbers in January 2021 when President Joe Biden was installed in office.
  • According to CIS’s figures, 60% or approximately two million of the 3.4 million increase in the total immigrant population since January 2021 is largely due to an uptick in illegal immigration.
  • Immigrants now make up 14.7% of the total US population, which is the same proportion as in 1910. In addition, this figure is just below the all-time high record of 14.8% reached in 1890 when the largest wave of European migration reached American shores.

Public statements and new changes in the Biden regime’s policies at the border and interior immigration enforcement have contributed to the increase in illegal immigration. Similarly, the restoration of visa processing at American consulates has enabled more permanent immigrants (green card holders) and long-term temporary visitors (for example: guest-workers and students) to go to the US than during the pandemic. The pandemic caused many of these consulates and visa issuing institutions to shut down or drastically reduce their hours. 

Should this increase in the foreign-born population continue apace, the percentage of the total population will exceed 1890’s record percentage sometime in 2023. Such increases in immigration will inevitably lead to massive socio-economic displacement. Moreover, it will secure Democratic Party hegemony, based on well-established migrant voting patterns

Ultimately, if mass migration is not contained through an immigration moratorium and other measures — ending birthright citizenship, implementing E-Verify, and abolishing chain migration — the Historic American Nation will disappear into the historical ether. It’s up to America First nationalists to ensure that this nightmare scenario does not occur.
