They’re still coming to America. Nothing hits home more than seeing the big picture, state by state.
The Center for Immigration Studies has now published interactive maps that allow you to see the astounding immigrant growth state by state, from 1970 to 2015.
CIS released a report in December 2015 indicating more than 61 million immigrants and their children now live in the United States, with at least 25% of those being ILLEGAL immigrants and their children. (Up from 13.5 million total immigrants in 1970.) Immigrants in U.S. has gone from one in fifteen in 1970 to one in five in 2015. (See Related Story HERE.)
The new map gives an enlightening picture of just how much the entire demographics of the United States has changed. For example, Texas has seen a 1,084% growth in immigrants and their minor children. Georgia immigrant growth is 3,058%. North Carolina, almost 3,000%.
This raises serious concerns about how the issuance of green cards and work visas are taking jobs from American Citizens. As the authors stated in the report, “These numbers raise profound questions that are seldom asked: What number of immigrants can be assimilated? What is the absorption capacity of our nation’s schools, health care system, infrastructure, and, perhaps most importantly, its labor market?”
