Immigration policy administered by the federal government will increase the population at seven times the normal rate, according to a chart from the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest.
"For every 1 new American added to the population, immigration will add 7 more," explains the subcommittee.
According to data from the Pew Research Center, without new immigration policy, 14 million residents are expected to be added to the current population by 2065. Pew "further projects that the federal government, exclusively through immigration policy, will add 103 million future residents to the U.S. population (new immigrants and their descendants)."
In addition, without any laws being passed to reduce immigration, it is expected that by 2065 there will be more than one in three U.S. residents who are foreign-born or have foreign-born parents.
"Over the last four decades, immigration levels have quadrupled," said Sen. Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.). "The Census Bureau projects that we will add another 14 million immigrants over the next decade. It is not mainstream, but extreme, to continue surging immigration beyond all historical precedent."
"It is time for moderation to prevail, and for us to focus on improving the jobs, wages, and security of the 300 million people already living inside our borders," he said.
