    24,639,000: Record Number of Foreign-Born Hold Jobs in U.S.


    The number of foreign-born individuals holding jobs in the United States hit a recorded high of 24,639,000 in August, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The BLS has been tracking the number of foreign-born workers annually since 2005 and monthly since 2007.

    The BLS does not distinguish between foreign-born individuals who are in the United States legally and those who are here illegally.

    Reportedly there are 146,647,000 people with jobs in the U.S. This is reported in the same article you cited. That is 16.8 percent of jobs held by foreign born. The latest statistics I have found report that 13% of population of the U.S. is foreign born. So, the number really is not out of live.

    Is that 13% you cite all working age adults? Don't think so.
