According to the May 26th, 10:00 A.M. release by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly one half, or 49% of the foreign born labor force in the United States is Hispanic, compared to 8.5% of the native born workforce was Hispanic.
According to the bureau, 22.3% of the foreign born workforce was Asian, compared to 1.4% of the native born. 19% of the foreign born labor force was white, compared to 75% of the native born workforce. 8.8% was black, compared to 11.6% of the native born workforce. The only category in which the foreign born work force was higher than for native born was blacks. Every other foreign born workforce category was higher for foreign born than for native born.
This only indicates that there is a significant black work force in the United States already and that not as many blacks immigrate into the United States as other ethnic groups. Additionally, the category is referred to as black rather than African American as many black immigrants are from the Western hemisphere, such as the west indies.
This percentage is expected to continue to rise rather than decline.
