Current federal policies will add one legal or illegal immigrant to the U.S. population every 33 seconds in 2017, or roughly one additional foreigner for every four American births, according to the Census Bureau.
A federal release dated on Dec. 28 states:
- The U.S. will see one birth occur every eight seconds.
- The U.S. will see one death occur every 11 seconds.
- “Net international migration” will add another person to the population every 33 seconds.
- Accounting for births, deaths, and migration, the U.S. will add one person to the population “every 17 seconds.”
Since New Year’s Day 2016, the U.S. population grew 0.7 percent, and is projected to stand at 324,310,011 on New Year’s Day 2017.
“Since Census Day (April 1) 2010, the population has grown by 15,564,473, or 5.04 percent,” the bureau adds.
Government-directed mass immigration inflates U.S. population growth, even during a time of low wages and high unemployment, as Breitbart News has previously reported:
Each year, roughly 4 million young Americans enter the job market — and the federal government provides work permits to roughly 1 million new legal immigrants and to almost 1 million temporary contract-workers…
Family immigration totaled over 60 percent of all legal immigration in the past three decades.
Currently, 75 percent of U.S. population growth since 2000 is attributable to immigration, counting ongoing arrivals and births to migrant mothers—whose anchor babies are automatically awarded U.S. citizenship, as in the notorious case of Mexican drug lord Joqauin “El Chapo” Guzman’s twin daughters.
If U.S. immigration policy is not changed, “immigration will add another 100 million people to the United States in the next 50 years,” according to a report published by the Negative Population Growth group last October.
The U.S. census total includes “anchor babies,” or the children of illegal alien parents. Under current rules, those children are automatically awarded citizenship. As many as 400,000 anchor babies are born every year in the U.S., amounting to roughly one in ten births.
According to another estimate, seven percent of the U.S. child population lived with at least one illegal-alien parent between 2009 and 2013.
As of 2014, some 42.4 million legal and illegal immigrants, aliens, contract workers, students, refugees, and more live in the U.S., comprising 13.3 percent of the population. Around 8.7 million additional migrants have arrived and settled in the U.S. since the great housing bubble burst and a recession began in 2007.
