Shocking Numbers Released On Immigrant Children Born In The U.S.

Analysis from the Pew Research Center shows in the United States in 2014, immigrant women gave birth to approximately 901,000 children, 275,000 of which were born to illegal immigrant women. In total, babies born to illegals accounted for 7 percent of all births in 2014.

Pew’s recently released report states that “In 2014, about 275,000 babies were born to unauthorized-immigrant parents in the U.S., accounting for about 7 percent of all U.S. births, and 32 percent of all U.S. births to foreign-born mothers.”


The analysis from Pew also found that the growth in the birthrate of America is currently being driven entirely by immigrants:

“While the annual number of babies born in the U.S. has fluctuated in recent years – most markedly during the Great Recession when there was a significant drop in births nationwide – the trajectory over the past four decades or so has been upward. In 2014, there were 4 million births in the U.S., compared with 3.74 million in 1970.”

“This growth has been driven entirely by the increasing numbers of babies born to immigrant women. In 2014, immigrant women accounted for about 901,000 U.S. births, which marked a threefold increase from 1970 when immigrant women accounted for about 274,000 births. Meanwhile, the annual number of births to U.S.-born women dropped by 11 percent during that same time period, from 3.46 million in 1970 to 3.10 million in 2014.
