Census Data Immigration Impact


by in Immigration

The recently concluded 2010 census showed that the U.S. population is approaching 309 million. This shows an increase from 281 million ten years ago. Officials say that 56 percent of this increase is a result of the surge of the country’s latino and hispanic population. Another 4 million is attributed to the increase in the U.S.’s slower growing Asian population.

The two of these groups swelled by approximately 43 percent over the past ten years. Together, they make up over 70 percent of U.S. population growth since 2000. Questions still linger as to what role illegal immigration has played in this increase.

A study conducted by the Pew Research Center found that the U.S. population is set to surge to 438 million by the year 2050. This if current trends continue. The greater question is how will be nation, currently facing a crisis in the jobs and energy markets, keep up with this increase. Increased life expectancies also contribute to the challenge. Will there simply be enough jobs, available housing, oil, coal and fresh water to accommodate these people?

The country simply appears to be paralyzed by these problems. Should the country scrap the numerical limits currently imposed on the various immigration family and employment based preference categories, or impose even stricter limitations on legal immigration?
