The "average" number of imported foreign workers (both students and workers) for 2011 and 2012 is 10,766,988.
There are approximately 157.1 million employed individuals in the United States according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statics. http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.htm
Of the 157 million, approxately 60 million are foreign workers imported to replace U.S. workers PLUS an additional 7 million foreign student taking U.S. job from Americans.

According U.S. government documents and reports the U.S. admits into the U.S. over 10.7 million foreign workers per year. http://travel.state.gov/content/dam/visas/Statistics/FY10AnnualReport-TableI.pdf [U.S. State Department] AND, http://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/files/publications/ois_yb_2013_0.pdf [U.S. Dept. Homeland Security]. Each “worker” is here to take a U.S. based job. Every foreign “worker” who entered the U.S. took away a job already occupied by a competent American. The foreign “worker” is not here to go to Disneyland – they come to take away Ameicna jobs! IN FACT, the foreing worker is not competent to do the job so the Americans have to train the incompetent foreign worker.
Each “worker” is here to take a U.S. based job. Every foreign “worker” who entered the U.S. toke away a job already occupied by a competent American. (The foreign “worker” did not come to the U.S to go to Disneyland – they went to take away American jobs!) IN FACT, the Americans had to train his incompetent foreign worker to be paid.
There presently remains a mere 90 million U.S. workers still employed in the U.S. but, at the present rate of growth importing foreign workers, within 10 years, the employed AMERICAN WORK FORCE WILL BE LESS THAN 20 million strong – the size of only 1 major city.
These numbers DO NOT INCLUDE the family of the foreign workers. His children, now in the U.S., will grow up and take even more U.S. jobs from Americans.
There are over 62 million American workers who have dropped out of the work force because they cannot find a job not occupied by an imported foreign worker.

How many new jobs are created in the U.S.? How many new college graduates are needed to supply the U.S. corporations and other businesses? Knowing this answer helps us know how many imported foreign workers are needed each year. It may also help answer the question of why U.S. corporations are importing foreign workers to replace competent U.S. workers.
The actual monthly number of new jobs needed calculated by the Atlanta Fed as 104,116 payroll jobs to maintain the same unemployment rate of 8.1%, http://www.economicpopulist.org/content/how-many-jobs-are-needed-keep-population-growth which equates to an annual need of 1,250,000 new workers per year.
The Bureau of Labor Statics reported that in 2014 there were 2.7 million job openings. http://www.bls.gov/news.release/pdf/jolts.pdf
Why did the Congress and the President allow the importation of over 7.2 million imported workers into the U.S. to take jobs from currently employed competent American workers? The Dept. of Homeland Security reported that in 2014 the U.S. allowed 9,932,480 imported foreign workers into the country to take jobs; while the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statics reported that in 2014 there were only 2.7 million job openings. Thus, the U.S. corporations imported an excess of over 7.2 million foreign workers to REPLACE competent American workers.
Compounding these numbers are the imported foreign “students” who are now working in jobs once occupied by Americans. Presently there are at least 6,706,804 foreigners in the U.S. on student visas. http://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/files/publications/ois_yb_2013_0.pdf More than 1.65 million foreign “students” enter this country each year.
Historically, foreign students were not allowed to work while in the U.S. because they occupied jobs that an American could do. In the 1990’s Jack Abramoff spent over $100 million dollars on congressmen to persuade them to change the law to allow foreign students to take jobs away from U.S. workers.
Curiosity compelled me to seek out how many of the 1.65 million foreign “students” are working at U.S. jobs. THERE IS NO ANSWER!! NO ACCURATE RECORDS ARE KEPT.
In fact, the government created “job finding preferential treatment” for foreigners ONLY. American students need not apply!!!
According to the U.S. Immigration Service, a foreign student may use the preferential work permit created just for foreign students, which allows employers to pay them less than the lawful pay scale. Also, the “job finding preferential treatment” allows the foreign student to overstay their student visa in order to extend their stay by obtaining a “guest work” preference visa that, supposedly, requires a college degree and be “highly skilled” in the proposed professional occupation.
Neither the U.S. Immigration Service nor the Department of Labor explain how an inexperienced college student, without a degree, can qualify to replace a competent U.S. worker when Congress required the foreign worker/student to have a college degree?
Thus, without government records, it must be presumed that college graduates, American or foreign, need to find a job. Thus, it is logical to presume that the 1,669,225 foreign students http://travel.state.gov/content/dam/visas/Statistics/FY10AnnualReport-TableI.pdf are IN ADDITION to the 9,932,480 foreign workers admitted into the U.S. each year to take U.S. jobs. Thus, the U.S. corporation imported an excess of over 8.9 million foreign workers to REPLACE competent American workers.
As noted above, Congress passed two programs that exclude Americans from any participation. The government’s job preference programs are Optional Practical Training and Curricular Practical Training.
The Optional Practical Training (OPT) allows the foreign student to work up to 29 months under the student visa, allowing the foreign worker/student multiple years to obtain a guest worker visa that replaces a competent American worker. "Federal Register, Volume 73, Number 68 (April 8, 2008)". April 2, 2008. Retrieved January 19, 2015.
Any FOREIGN student under OPT counts as "employed". Thus, the student is a “WORKER” in the U.S. to take a U.S. based job. It is possible for a person on OPT to hold multiple jobs simultaneously and/or to run his own business. OPT (Optional Practical Training)". University of Chicago.

There are no OPT-specific regulations on the employer or the amount of pay so that the foreign worker/student can undercut U.S. wages and cause a U.S. worker to be fired.
Foreign students in the U.S. on F-1 student visas are not permitted to work in the U.S. except for on-campus employment. Thanks to Congress, the school may grant work authorization for Curricular Practical Training (CPT) allowing the foreign student to take a job from a currently employed U.S. worker.
Foreign students are permitted to work for a total of 29 months towards practical training (e.g. internship), which can be distributed between CPT and OPT. "8 CFR 214.2(f)(10)".
