WASHINGTON (Breitbart) – Since the beginning of the recession in December of 2007 — said to have ended in June 2009 — the foreign-born population has seen a much greater net employment growth than native-born Americans.

In December 2007 the number of foreign-born workers was 22,810,000. By April 2015, the number had increased to 24,819,000 or a net job growth of more than 2 million.

For native-born workers that number in December 2007 was 123,524,000 by April of this year the number of employed native-born Americans was 123,769,000 or a net job growth of 245,000.

The month of April marks the first month since the end of the recession where native-born Americans had more jobs than they did prior to the recession.

As Breitbart News has reported, in previous months net job growth since the recession had gone entirely to immigrants, with native-born Americans experiencing a net job loss.
