View Full Version : U.S. foreign-born population swells to highest in over a century

The number of foreign-born people in the United States grew last year to its highest share in over a century, according to Census Bureau data published on Thursday.

The increase took the number of foreign-born residents to 44.5 million in 2017, up 1.8 percent from a year earlier.
The administration has said it wants to restrict legal immigration, and has stepped up efforts as well to detain and deport immigrants in the country illegally since President Donald Trump took office in January 2017.
But so far, said Randy Capps, a demographer at the Migration Policy Institute, the government hasn’t restricted legal immigration much and America’s strong job market likely fueled part of last year’s increase in the foreign-born population.
“The economy’s definitely a factor in this, not just in more people coming but in more people staying,” Capps said.
Foreign-born residents made up 13.7 percent of the U.S. population in 2017, up from 13.5 percent in 2016, according to the Census Bureau’s estimates. That put the proportion of immigrants in the United States last year at the highest since 1910, when they made up 14.7 percent of the population.

So 60 million counting illegals ? or just 45 million ? Someone will need to point out the huge wave of positives that offers because I fail to see it .

Misunderstanding happens even among English speaks, english not being my first language has nothing to do with the misunderstanding here. I wasn't sure where he got the 60 million and I made the assumption that he thinks it is the total number of foreign born and illegal immigrants or something like that.

I cannot believe u said that to me. Its one thing if u said u didn't want me to breed with someone outside my race but u don't want me to breed at all?

Sadly for u, I am looking forward to having 4 lovely, healthy kids of my own.

Therefore, the America that you want to return to had an even greater percentage of immigrants than we do today.

Immigrants as a percent of US population don't just keep increasing the farther back you go.

You'd have to go back to 1860 to hit a lower percentage of immigrants.

Is the America that you want to go back to pre- or post- 1860?

Pre-1860.

You will immediately scream that I want to bring back slavery of course but that is ridiculous, turning back the clock on one or many things doesn't require turning it back on everything else.

You'd be going back to a time before the census asked about people's nationality. I guess they didn't consider it important then.

Technology hadn't enabled so many immigrants to come here so easily and the rest of the world hadn't ruined itself so badly that everyone wanted to move here.

I go home every couple of years. If that is what you mean then ignore my protest.

It sorta bugs me because I am not sure someone as ignorant as you actually understands that there is a difference between Nigeria the country and Africa the continent. Sadly, its not just you but quite a few Americans have a hard time with the concept.

We have limits now even if they are too loose, we would be completely flooded with immigrants now if we didn't thanks to technology.




Holy $#@!, read a history book sometime.
The difference between America and the rest of the world economically or in terms of liberty is much greater today.

As a hunter , I think of it more of different types of geographical habitat type for my favorite game animals and old tribal lands . Like if I am on a river in Cameroon then go into Congo it is the same habitat type . Or if I am in the gulf of Guinea and there are a couple Islands I just pretend I am a pirate and claim them as my spoils .

Census Bureau data analyzed by researchers at the Center for Immigration Studies reveals that America has greatly increased immigration from the third world and Islamic regions within the last seven years.
Since 2010, foreign countries with the largest percentage increases based on the number of legal immigrants they are sending to the U.S. include:



Nepal – 120 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
Burma (Myanmar) – 95 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
Venezuela – 91 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
Afghanistan – 84 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
Saudi Arabia – 83 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
Syria – 75 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
Bangladesh – 62 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
Nigeria – 57 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
Kenya – 56 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
India – 47 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
Iraq – 45 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
Ethiopia – 44 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
Egypt – 34 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
Brazil – 33 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
Dominican Republic – 32 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
Ghana – 32 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
China – 31 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
Pakistan – 31 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.
Somalia – 29 percent increase in immigration to the U.S.

In this same time frame, unlikely states like North Dakota and Wyoming saw the largest percentage increases in the number foreign-born residents resettling in the region.

We need to eject many of the legal greencard holders as well.
