Study: Joe Biden Migration Plan Could Bring 52 Million Foreign Nationals to U.S.

Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s plan to overhaul the nation’s immigration system could help bring an estimated 52 million foreign nationals to the United States, a study details.

Researchers with the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) analyzed Biden’s immigration plan, revealing that through a series of amnesty, new visa programs, and increases to existing legal immigration levels, a potential 52 million foreign nationals could be added to the U.S. population.

Specifically, FAIR researchers project Biden’s proposed amnesty for roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens currently in the U.S. would help balloon the rate at which foreign nationals can secure family-based visa categories known as “chain migration.”

Chain migration allows newly naturalized citizens to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S. On average, FAIR researchers note, each new immigrant brings about 3.45 additional immigrants with them.
