Immigration and Population Growth

One of the biggest problems with excessive immigration is simply unlimited population growth with all of the problems what overpopulation inevitably brings (environmental stress, reduced standard of living, etc).  If we do not change very soon we are on the express route to becoming another China in the not too distant future.

Question: Where does the Census Bureau say we’re heading by 2060?

We will have 459 million Americans, not counting illegal aliens. This is an increase of more than 200 million, the vast majority of which is due to immigrants and their offspring. This is a future which does not have to happen!

But the U.S. Census Bureau says the projections on this chart are inevitable UNLESS Congress cuts immigration.

The chart shows the U.S. Census Bureau’s middle-range projection of how much additional population will be forced into the United States if current immigration and fertility levels continue.

The Census Bureau has at least 10 projections based on low, middle and high figures for each of the categories of fertility rate, mortality rate and immigration. The middle-range projection shown here is considered the most likely scenario if conditions remain similar to what they are now.
