Population Explosion! Immigrant Numbers Skyrocket to 42.4 Million – Doubled Since 1980

Population Explosion! Immigrant Numbers Skyrocket to 42.4 Million – Doubled Since 1980

Wasn’t this the plan all along? This is classic Cloward and Piven. The Progressives have brought so many in and are doubling down on opening the gates to the point of economic and cultural collapse here in the US. The immigrant population has doubled since 1980 to an estimated 42.4 million and I contend that number is low balling it in the extreme. We are now bringing in over 1 million immigrants a year, when what we should be doing is putting an immigration moratorium in place for the next five years until we can get a handle on who is here legally and illegally and secure our borders. Do the math… 51% of immigrant households are now on welfare. We are broke and cannot handle the entitlements. They are going to economically drown us and the government is saying faster, faster pussycat!

Immigrant Population

From National Review:

The U.S. immigrant population reached a record high of 42.4 million according to a new analysis of census data — and the growth rate of the foreign-born population is accelerating. A new Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) report shows the legal- and illegal-immigrant population grew by 2.4 million since 2010, with more than a million new arrivals in 2014.

The dramatic increases in immigration are evident in both absolute numbers of the foreign born and as a share of the U.S. population. “Immigrants (legal and illegal) comprised 13.3 percent or about one out of eight U.S. residents in 2014, the highest percentage in 104 years,” the report notes. And the growth in the immigrant population is accelerating rapidly, from an increase of a half million immigrants per year between 2010 and 2012 to over a million from 2013 to 2014.

The immigrant share of the population has more than doubled from what it was in 1980, when illegal and legal immigrants together made up just 6.2 percent of the country.

Additionally, when the 16.2 million U.S.-born children of immigrant parents are included, one in six U.S. residents is an immigrant or the child of an immigrant – a total of 58.6 million people in 2014.

The authors of the study, Steven A. Camarota and Karen Zeigler, used data from the Census Bureau’s 2014 American Community Survey (ACS) which, according to the report, “allows for a more detailed analysis [of the immigrant population] by country of origin and state of residence.” According to CIS, the survey is the largest conducted by the government each year and provides a more in-depth look at the composition of the American population than the Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey, which, though released more regularly, does not measure the immigrant population as comprehensively and uses a smaller sample size.

Sub-Saharan African, Middle Eastern, and Asian countries saw the largest relative growth in immigrant flows. Immigration from predominantly Muslim countries grew at a rate of 19 percent between 2010 and 2014, including immigration from Saudi Arabia (up 93 percent), Bangladesh (up 37 percent), and Iraq (up 36 percent). Canada and Europe declined as sources of immigration to the U.S.

The analysis comes on the heels of two CIS reports earlier this month showing that a majority (51 percent) of households headed by immigrants used at least one welfare program — such as Medicaid, food aid, housing programs, and cash assistance — significantly higher than the rate of welfare use among native-born–headed households (30 percent). The studies showed that three-fourths of immigrant households using welfare were headed by legal immigrants.

The reports raised questions for supporters of mass immigration who claim that it is an unalloyed benefit to the United States.

What’s even more disturbing are the numbers of immigrants and refugees (who are not included in these numbers) that are coming into the US from the Middle East. Immigration from Saudi Arabia is up 93%, Bangladesh is up 37%, Iraq is up 36% and now we are about to be inundated with 100’s of thousands of so-called Syrians. These numbers also don’t include Somalis or other Middle Eastern countries and they sure as heck don’t include the terrorist element, because they don’t have a freaking clue how many are here now. Americans have been questioning those who are forcing this tidal wave of mass immigration on us since it started – just how does this benefit us? This is national suicide and it is accelerating. It looks an awful lot like the Hijrah migration, American-style.
