U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has launched a Facebook page in Spanish, the agency announced Thursday.

“We are committed to strengthening our mission to our nation and continuing to serve you,” reads a statement from USCIS. “It is a dynamic time for our nation in terms of immigration and we recognize the need to connect with you, share ideas and share the stories of our Hispanic community.” (RELATED: Media Ignores Evidence Americans Want To Reduce Legal Immigration)

In addition to launching the Spanish Facebook page, USCIS has moved its Spanish blog off of the English blog to a new page. Both pages will contain new and original content exclusively in Spanish.

“USCIS is strengthening its commitment to the Spanish-speaking community,” the statement reads.

The foreign-born population has increased by 325 percent since 1970, according to the Congressional Research Service. And by 2023 it will reach 51 million, which is the largest share of total population ever recorded in American history, the U.S. Census Bureau recently projected.

Nearly one in five U.S. residents will be an immigrant by 2060, largely because of legal immigration, not illegal immigration, a Center for Immigration Studies analysis of the Census data found. And immigrants will account for 82 percent of population growth in the U.S. from 2010 through 2060.
