A report from the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and The National Interest have found that the United States currently shelters upwards of “10 million more foreign-born residents” than all of the European Union, combined.
The EU’s 35,000,000 foreign-born residents accounts for roughly 7-percent of it’s total population (503,000,000). Meanwhile, foreign-born residents in America account for over 14-percent of the 320,000,000 people living on U.S. soil. (RELATED: Republicans Seek Ways To Stop Syrian Refugee Resettlement in US)
