Joe Biden Looks to Add Half a Million Foreigners to Workforce as 44M Americans Remain on Sidelines

John Binder, Breitbart, September 4, 2023

President Joe Biden is projected to hugely boost the foreign-born workforce in the United States, adding about half a million to fill American jobs while tens of millions of Americans remain out of the labor market entirely.

Analysis from Goldman Sachs economists projects Biden’s ramping up the nation’s legal immigration system — which brings more than a million foreign nationals to the United States on green cards annually in addition to another million on temporary work visas — will add about 500,000 foreign workers to the workforce by mid-June of next year.

Monthly, the economists note, Biden is inflating the labor market with tens of thousands of foreign workers employers can hire {snip}

“… growth in the foreign-born labor force has accelerated by 50k to 160k per month this year, lifted by a surging foreign-born labor force participation rate (LFPR),” they write.


The projection comes as the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) recently revealed that, as of April, more than 44 million native-born Americans remain on the labor market sidelines {snip}


From 1960 to 2023, for instance, the number of native-born American men 16 to 64 years old not in the labor market increased by nearly 14 million. Over that same period, the number of foreign-born workers 16 to 64 years old in the labor market increased by 13.7 million.
