(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) — The United States will attract another 100 million more immigrants over the next 50 years, driven by a huge spurt of legally-admitted "spouses" who can then sponsor foreign family members to become Americans, according to a comprehensive new immigration report.
In the period 2010-2019, the U.S. is now projected to process the largest number of legal immigrants in U.S. history, over 10 million, said the report published by Negative Population Growth Inc. And three quarters of the U.S. population growth this century has come from immigration, said the report.
"Immigration, counting both new admissions and births to immigrant women, was responsible for three-fourths of the growth in our population this century. If current trends continue, immigration will add another 100 million people to the United States in the next 50 years," said the report.
