Senator Jeff Sessions: SUBCOMMITTEE CHART: Immigrant Population To Grow More Than 700 Percent From 1970 Levels

After the 1880-1920 immigration wave, Congress reduced immigration. There was zero net growth in the immigrant population from 1920 through 1970 – in fact, the immigrant population shrank considerably over this time – even as the total population of the United States roughly doubled. Covering the entire time period from 1880-1970, the foreign-born population grew roughly 40 percent. By comparison, from 1970 through 2060, Census data shows the immigrant population will increase an unprecedented 715 percent – unless Congress reduces visa allocations.

Today, the foreign-born population is already at an all-time high of 42.4 million. Measured as a percentage of total national population, it is set to soon surpass the highest levels ever recorded and continue rising to new unseen records every year and decade to follow.

Census data shows the U.S. will add the population equivalent of 1 new city of Los Angeles exclusively through new immigration every three years. Including the future children of new arrivals, Pew data shows new immigration will add the equivalent of 25 cities of Los Angeles over the next fifty years – even as today’s excess labor supply pulls down wages, as manufacturing jobs go overseas, and as automation reduces demand for workers. Nearly 1 in 4 U.S. residents in their prime-working years is not working; median household income today is more than $4,000 beneath levels reached fifteen years ago.

By a nearly 10:1 margin, Americans of all backgrounds agree that companies should raise wages instead of importing new foreign labor. Yet, the Gang of Eight bill would have radically accelerated the already-colossal and historic flow of foreign labor by tripling the issuance of green cards over the next ten years and doubling the flow of foreign workers. And the recently-passed omnibus funded a large refugee expansion and dramatically increased the inflow of H-2B workers to fill blue-collar jobs.

    A rate faster than is reasonable to meet any attempt for assimilation. This will not be E. Pluribus Unum. It will be of benefit for those who desire the permanent predominantly poor and further divide the rich from the poor with few, if any, middle class.

    Look forward to a culture of serf’s and elites.
