Census: Record 51 Million Immigrants in 8 Years, Will Account for 82% of U.S. Growth

Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner, April 22, 2015

Legal and illegal immigrants will hit a record high of 51 million in just eight years and eventually account for an astounding 82 percent of all population growth in America, according to new U.S. Census figures.

A report from the Center for Immigration Studies that analyzed the statistics said that by 2023, one in seven U.S. residents will be an immigrant, rising to one in five by 2060 when the immigrant population totals 78 million.

“These numbers have important implications for workers, schools, infrastructure, congestion and the environment,” said Steven Camarota, the center’s director of research. “They also may have implications for our ability to successfully assimilate and integrate immigrants. Yet there has been almost no national debate about bringing in so many people legally each year, which is the primary factor driving these numbers.”

On Friday, key business leaders including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a group associated with former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg plan to pitch for more immigration. {snip}

The numbers, as seen in the highlights below, will also raise concerns that Washington is giving the keys to the nation to new immigrants:

• The immigrant population will grow four times faster than the native born population, reaching 15.8 percent, or 57 million, of the nation’s population in 2030, 17.1 percent, or 65 million, in 2040, and 18.8 percent, or 78 million, in 2060.

{snip}

• Immigrants and their descendants “will account for the overwhelming share of population growth,” said the Center in projecting growth. They will account for 75.5 percent from 2010-2050 and 82 percent from 2010-2060.

• Census Bureau projects that in 2023 the nation’s immigrant population, legal and illegal, will reach 14.8 percent of the total U.S. population, the highest share ever recorded.

  • Immigration has accounted for 80% of American population growth since 1970. So, while this is news, it’s not new.

    • Oil Can Harry

      These Third World invaders may be responsible for 80% of our population growth but they sure as hell don’t account for 80% of our economic growth!

    • Avi Marranazo

      The irony is the same people who told the historic American nation to not have kids are the same ones promoting the importation of Third World settler colonists.

  • Earl P. Holt III

    We are not helpless, but we need a Constitutional Amendment that would do the following:

    1) Establish a Moratorium on Immigration until it is overturned by subsequent Amendment;
    2) Grant every state Co-extensive and Parallel Authority to enforce our Immigration Laws, irrespective of actions or inaction by the federal government, including the Federal Courts;
    3) Grant every state the power of Asset Forfeiture over Illegal Aliens, and allow the proceeds to be used to process, incarcerate or deport them to their nations of origin;
    4) Retroactively reverse any unilateral acts of “Amnesty” or “Clemency” by the Executive Branch, without a majority vote of both Houses of Congress;
    5) End “Anchor Babies” and “Chain-Migration” by Illegal Aliens;
    6) Rescind Tax Exemption for any organization which harbors or grants asylum to Illegal Aliens.

    • A Freespeechzone

      While I agree with you; you can bet the odds are nil and none that enough politicians will support your points.

      • Earl P. Holt III

        It would have a better chance if it began at the state level in state legislatures. Suggest this to your state Rep and State Senator…

    • Brother John

      Excellent. You need dozens more upvotes for this.

    • InAFreeCountry

      Also, the government should not be giving loans and grants to immigrants to start up motels and convenience stores.

  • TruthBeTold

    I was commenting and reading comments on this article last night.

    People claiming to be millenials were gloating about Whites becoming a minority.

    I couldn’t help but thinking they’re likely not to suffer too much from the change in their lifetimes. I tried to get them to see that even if they didn’t suffer any consequences their children and grandchildren would.

    They don’t see it that way. The believe that all the problems we have are the result of racist White people and once the racist White people are gone the US is going to be Utopia.

        She has lots of up votes but she does up vote her own posts.

        I was also hampered in my ability to debate because to of my comments were put on PENDING and never posted.

        One was one sentence where I said ‘third world coming to the US’ and the other was for posting about Muslim sexual abuse scandal in the UK. I don’t know why they were both flagged.

          After serving in the military and now trying out a year of college, I can say with the utmost confidence they’re not going to change anything for the better. There’s still plenty of potential for things to get worse, however.

            That’s one of the things I always repeated to myself when about to do something I really didn’t want to do. The other one was ‘Stop feeling sorry for yourself, you chose this’.

          • TruthBeTold

            I know I’m not going to change their minds.

            But the anti-White hate and self-hate is becoming disturbing.

            These people actually believe White people are the problem and when White people are the minority everyone is going to get along.

            And yes it’s going to get worse. And there will be millenials who will wake up and see that diversity is the problem not the solution.

            But they will be shouted down as heretics and be accused of having learned ‘racism’ from their parents.

        • Illidan Stormragge

          Even on HuffPost there are plenty of white people that don’t buy into the narrative you were arguing against. It varies article to article. The fundamental difference between AmRen readers and the people you are trying to argue with is they do not see the world as race-based; they see most of the problems purely in a narrow timeframe social context. For example, today (and in recent decades) whites are the ones dominant in society and all social problems in the US thus must stem from them. I’m probably stating the obvious but people generally do not believe racial differences, let’s say in intelligence or even on a significant cultural level, exist. It’s absolutely not taught anywhere.

          • USofAntiWhite

            So they don’t see the world as race based but they conclude “White” people are the cause for every woe suffered on Earth? They sound brainwashed and flat out dumb to me.

          • TruthBeTold

            all social problems in the US thus must stem from them.

            And their belief, as expressed by the drunken rant of Tim Wise, once the old White racists have died off, the world will be a better place.

            They actually believe this and are gleefully taunting us and mocking us about our impending demise and irrelevance.

            Some millenials will eventually see the truth about race and diversity. But will they have the political power to stop it?

            I wish some smart White person could invent a ‘What If’ helmet that you could program to see the future based on real trends.

            The young kids who think we’re building a glorious raceless future are brainwashed drones. They have no idea what’s coming; even when you show them picture of Zimbabwe and South Africa.

        • Cindy

          Here’s the thing I noticed about the Millennials (that are SJW) they’re racist. (I don’t mean “racist” in a bad way)
          They think it impossible to be racist towards Whites. But that does not negate the fact that they’re bona fide racists.
          When Whites are a minority and start to get stepped on, all the blame they’re giving Whites today will quickly turn to blaming browns. It will be such a small step for them to make because they’re already racist.
          I see this shift in blaming Whitey to (rightfully) blaming browns happening very quickly. But when will the shift happen? And how will Whites react when they finally see that browns do not suffer White guilt and will not be kind when they hold the power?

          • carriewhite64

            That is an interesting and logical theory. I hope you are right.

          • Cindy

            Also, Millennials (the SJWs) are against Cultural Appropriation which in reality is just a PC way to be pro segregation. The fact that they’re racists that want segregation gives me hope. They just have to make the shift that these views will favor Whites. If they really were the egalitarians they claim to be, I’d be worried.

        • InAFreeCountry

          Millennials should learn that smugness is not a virtue and upvoting oneself is gauche.

          • TruthBeTold

            The flaw of youth is that they believe being young gives them a fresh, new, never before expressed insight into the world.

            Their ideas aren’t new. Their ideas have been tried repeatedly and fail which is why we have to keep trying them because they believe at some point they’ll work according to their theory.

            But because of instant communication and social media, Millenials are going to do a lot of damage before many of them wake up to realty. They can mobilize instantly for any cause (gay rights, black lives matter) and appear to be a majority when they aren’t; they’re just the loudest in the moment.

            I’m not overstating this. I believe Millenials are a real danger. They are the avant-garde of the American ‘Cultural Revolution’.

            Your assessment of them rings true. But it is possible they will change course. In fact, it seems likely to me that they will change course.
            What happens when the goodies start to run short?
            (Unfortunately this never happened to the hippies)
            They can’t live without their phones (literally) Not to mention all the other luxuries they won’t want to give up. These kids think they can have both; feel superior by pandering to minorities AND all the goodies that go along with being the ruling class.
            When they finally see the truth, they will use social media to crush whoever they see as an enemy.
            Wishful thinking? Maybe.
            But Whites throughout history have proven to be a mighty force.

    Politicians need an ever increasing mass of population growth to keep the Social Security and other entitlement programs functioning. If you think 400 million is a high population number, what will happen when half of them retire?

    A collapse has to happen, be it another war or Depression. The only question is when.

    • groidle

      The longer it takes, the worse it’ll be.

      Personally I think secession (of the heartland) is long overdue.

    • phorning

      I think it was Steve Sailer who called it demographic ponzi scheme. The politicians truly do not get that the country cannot support unlimited population growth.

      • Luca

        They get it. They don’t care, they kick the can down the road.

      • Petronius

        Bernie Madoff was sentenced to 150 years in prison for his ponzi scheme, but what the politicians have done to this country is much, much worse.

      • Hammerheart

        Especially when half the people they import don’t pay into the system.

        • USofAntiWhite

          Half? Try over 70% and half take from multiple handout programs.

    • Jaggers

      So we’re told, but I don’t quite see how that math works when these immigrants are net tax consumers rather than contributors.

    • John Smith

      Most will contribute less than they take.

  • Tannenbaum

    The White public needs to be made more aware of the subtle semantic propaganda about “growth.” In this context, “growth” does not mean “developing like a healthy child.” It means “swelling out of control, like a tumor.”

    Likewise, the controlled governmedia have long been pushing the false impression that this “growth” is some sort of unstoppable natural process, like the tides. It’s a safe bet that few White Americans are even aware that our “growth” is a carefully orchestrated operation, planned and carried out from above.

      • Bossman

        China and India are now the largest source of legal immigrants.

        • phillyguy

          East Indians are here by the corporate giants to undercut white American jobs. half of the Chinese in this country are also here illegally brought by the Chinese mob and put into sweatshops, Chinese restaurants and whore houses.

          • TruthBeTold

            And hotels. Hotels love their Chinese maids more than their Hispanic maids.

          • Illidan Stormragge

            China soon won’t have any excess population to send out after a certain point. Just like the Japanese and Koreans today, they won’t be able to send out anyone as immigrants because of a sharply dropping population.

            Africans, Muslims, Indians and Mexicans on the other hand. Entirely different story.

          • USofAntiWhite

            China could drop 600 million (two times the US population) tomorrow and nobody in China would even notice. They got over 1,800 million China zombies, excess Chinese will be in big supply for a long time, and they love sending us their zombies.

          • 李冠毅

            A long time? I’d say 20-30 years max. Trust me, I’m a Chinese national, and you have no idea how bad the problem of a fast aging population is, thanks to the one-child policy. Last night, I read a depressing story of an epidemic of suicides by elderly people because their children couldn’t take care of them, and they do not wish to be a burden.

          • USofAntiWhite

            I guess it just depends on our different perspective on population numbers. If China somehow over 50 years lost half it’s population there would still be 900 million Chinese. From a Westerner point of view that is a staggering number, almost tripling the US population. I would think China having a potential population decrease in the coming decades would be something to look forward to. I get it, old people will be lonely but let’s think big here, how would China not growing in the future not be a good thing for China long term? If the reality for North America over the next 50 years was a decreasing human population I would be ecstatic, even if it meant I would have to wind up old and lonely.

          Mexicans are the largest source of disease, poverty and crime in the US.

          • Bossman

            I believe USA Blacks still hold that record as the largest source of disease, poverty and crime in the USA. Mexican migrants, on the other hand, are workers willing to do all sorts of menial jobs and are generally good at it. They help to keep price inflation for food very low.

        • USofAntiWhite

          Two scariest countries on Earth; nearly two billion zombie-esque populations each, of which 90% live in squalor, total environmental destruction and lousy human rights with nothing to offer but third-world people and low quality merchandise… and now Indians and Chinese want to pour in here… yuck.

          • Bossman

            I believe you to be correct about that.

      • To be fair, they didn’t let themselves in.

        • USofAntiWhite

          It started with them letting themselves in. The 1986 amnesty made it so they would never let themselves out, just as anti-White Washington DC has wanted it for decades.

            I can peg the Mexican invasion of my town to the 86 Reagan amnesty. For all the good he done he eventually will be a major contributor to the country’s white death.

    • Bossman

      You seem to think that the USA immigration problem has all to do with the illegal migrants from south of the border. If you believe that then you’re hopelessly naive. The biggest threat will be the hordes of East and South Asia. They now account for the largest group coming through legally and their numbers keep growing. And when their numbers reach a critical mass, they will demand that they be represented at all levels of society, from government to TV commercials.

      • stedman holder

        The removal of you and your illegal friends are the first step. We don’t need sub-humans.

          Bossman is determined to convince you that Hispanics are fine and can be allowed to immigrate into White countries. Maybe he even considers Hispanics to be White. Just pay attention to his comments; he clearly has an agenda. Even I don’t try to pretend that mass immigration of my race into White countries will do the locals much good.

          • USofAntiWhite

            Do you ever want to see a grown man cry? Simply tell a Mexican or Black that they, as a group are essentially worthless and are only an obstacle course along the path to a first-world civilization. If they don’t cry it was only because they didn’t understand, too many medium-sized words.

        We don’t want the current “immigrants” from south of the border and we don’t want The Chinese or Indians either. If you don’t understand the reality that Mexican and Central American “immigration” alone has destroyed places like South Texas and Southern California you are hopelessly naive.

      I was born in NYC 21 years ago. When I went to school the white student population was less than 20%. Today it’s around 17%.

      Keep in mind, it’s not just national policy that has changed national demographics. It’s the fact that white people constituted 1/3rd of the world population in the 50s. Today, they constitute less than 9%. Population explosions happened all over the world since the 50s. Whites simply no longer had / have 3-4 children per family. If they did and still do, they would be the ones currently pushing into other countries. It’s just natural diffusion.

However, we can’t print the money of fast growing countries like China and India. Once they are in the ascendancy the collapse will happen — and when it does it will be swift.

        I’m working on and off on a novel set 30 years in the future. The lower 48 states break up into several autonomous regions, some of which become new nations. In the meantime, while everybody is caught up in the turmoil, the founding concepts of America are rebooted in Alaska, fueled by Russian venture capital.

        The new Alyeska allows only comparatively high IQ immigrants, there is no welfare, there is no affirmative action, and to vote you have to both pass a civics test and pay a hefty poll tax. There is no racial discrimination but for some strange reason the population is overwhelmingly white with a smattering of East Asians and Jews.

What is your brilliant idea to save European America?
