This means 375,000 foreign-born workers were added to the workforce in November:

While the foreign-born population gained jobs last month the number of employed native-born Americans declined in November from 124,597,000 in October to 124,271,000 in November — a loss of 326,000 jobs.

Over the span of Barack Obama’s presidency the foreign-born population has gained 4,120,000 jobs and the native-born population has gained 5,210,000.

While the job growth between the two groups is about on par, the native-born civilian population (ages 16 and over) has increased more than twice as much in that same time. The native-born Americans civilian noninstitutional population has grown by 11,663,000 people since January 2009, while the foreign-born civilian noninstitutional population has grown by 5,346,000.

The not seasonally adjusted unemployment and participation rates were also better for foreign-born works in the U.S. in November.

Last month the foreign-born population had an unemployment rate of 4.4 percent and a labor force participation rate of 66.1 percent.
