A new report from the non-partisan Congressional Research Service documents the rapid increase in the number of foreign-born residents living in the U.S. The more than 40.8 million foreign-born here in 2012 represented a staggering 321% increase from 1970, according to the report. At this rate, the U.S. will have around 60 million foreign-born living here ten years from now.
If the Senate-passed “Gang of Eight” amnesty/immigration increase bill were enacted, the foreign-born population could be nearly 68.3 by 2022, the report concluded. No estimates were available for the future population impact of the anticipated Obama executive amnesty edict.
Current U.S. immigration policy allows one legal immigrant to enter every 40 seconds, according to U.S. Census Bureau data.
