Pew Research Center estimates that there were about 3.3 million Muslims living in the United States in 2015. In other words, Muslims made up about 1% of the total U.S. population. Pew Research Center estimates that the percentage is set to skyrocket.
Since the day Obama took office, there has been a steady growth in both the number of Muslims in the U.S. and the percentage of the U.S. population that is Muslim.
In addition, Pew Research estimates the U.S. Muslim population will grow like wildfire. By the time the year 2040 arrives, Muslims will become the second-largest religious group in the U.S.
President Obama has used immigration to fundamentally transform America. For example, over half of the projected growth of the American Muslim population from 2010 to 2015 is due to immigration. The number of Muslim immigrants currently represents about 10% of all legal immigrants arriving in the U.S. Currently, America takes in more immigrants from the Middle East than it does from Mexico and Central America combined. Furthermore, as we reported last month, America is admitting more than double the amount of Muslims taken in by the EU.
The other main cause of Islam’s recent growth is natural increase. American Muslims tend to have more children than Americans of other religious faiths. Muslims also tend to be younger than the general public, so a larger share of Muslims will soon be at the point in their lives when people begin having children.
The overall numbers are set to explode. As we reported yesterday, President Obama is using sneaky tactics to bypass Congress and make it so America takes in 100,000 Syrian refugees in the coming year.
