Immigration, both legal and illegal, has reached astounding proportions. This eye opening report brings the very real question of preserving the nation as we know it. The percentages of increase of certain populations equates to hundredfold increases. The most disturbing aspect is that it is un-monitored and unchecked all in the name of fairness and compassion. We cannot exist as a nation without borders. Without borders maintained by existing laws, America could descend into chaos. Read on and be informed, at least.

Report: Nearly 1 in 5 U.S. Residents Now an Immigrant or Under 18 Child of an Immigrant.
More than 61 million immigrants and their U.S.-born children under the age of 18 now reside in the United States, according to a new Center for Immigration Studies analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data.
The CIS report estimates that of the 61 million total, three-fourths or 45.3 million, are legal immigrants and their children. The remaining 15.7 million are illegal immigrants and their children.
According to CIS, the current ratio of nearly one in five U.S. residents either immigrants or the children of immigrants is “a complete break with the recent history of the United States”
“As recently as 1970, there were only 13.5 million immigrants and their young children in the country, accounting for one in 15 U.S. residents,” the report reads, noting that since year 2000 alone, the population of immigrants and their minor children increased by 18.4 million people.
Additionally, the report highlights that the immigrant population in the U.S. has grown six times faster in that past 45 year than the total population of the U.S. According to CIS from 1970 to 2015 the immigrant and their children population grew by 353 percent compared to the nation’s 59 percent population growth.
The growth has CIS questioning the nation’s ability to absorb the high level of new arrivals.
