Biden Era Sees 54% Unemployment Rate Among New US Immigrants

Breaking News Alert: New Report Highlights High Rates of Unemployment Among Foreign-Born Immigrants in the U.S. Under President Biden’s Watch

The latest findings from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) have once again put the spotlight on the employment status of foreign-born immigrants in the United States. According to the report, a whopping 54 percent of immigrants who arrived in the U.S. during the Biden administration are currently without a job. That’s right, folks, more than half of these newcomers are sitting on the sidelines while hardworking Americans are out there keeping the economy moving. 


Researchers Steven Camarota and Karen Zeigler from the CIS sound the alarm bells, pointing out that immigration doesn’t just bring in eager workers ready to roll up their sleeves; it also brings in a fair share of folks who need to rely on others to make ends meet. And let’s not forget about the kiddos hitting the books in our schools and the retirees enjoying the sunshine – they’re all part of the immigration equation.

Contrary to what the advocates for illegal immigration would have you believe, the CIS report crushes the argument that migrants are boosting the economy through their sweat equity. In fact, since President Biden took office, the immigrant population has ballooned by a staggering 6.6 million souls in less than three and a half years. Yikes!

The numbers don’t lie: as of March 2024, a record-breaking 51.6 million foreign-born immigrants call the U.S. home, making up a hefty 15.6 percent of the total population. With such a large influx of newcomers, it’s no wonder that jobs seem to be in short supply for these folks. And with the ongoing border crisis fueling unauthorized entries, the situation is only getting stickier.

And here’s the kicker: while American citizens are finding themselves with fewer job opportunities post-COVID-19, President Biden’s job growth strategy seems to be centered around hiring more and more foreign-born immigrants. It’s a head-scratcher for sure, but hey, who said politics was easy?

Stay tuned as the immigration saga continues to unfold, with the CIS keeping a watchful eye on who’s clocking in and who’s clocking out in this great melting pot of a nation.
