Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh was blown away by the recent, “sobering” report from the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest during his Monday broadcast.
The report — based off data collected by the Pew Research Center — shows that “under current law” for every single American born over the next 50 years, immigration will add seven more to the population. (RELATED: Future Immigrants Will Dominate US Population Growth [CHART])
LIMBAUGH: Under current law — meaning legal immigration — under current law between now and 2065, every one American added to the population by our existing citizens — i.e. birth — immigration will add seven more. That’s under current law… This has nothing to do with amnesty. It has nothing to do with any reform, comprehensive or otherwise. Can you say transformation of the country? Before Obama even does his amnesty. Before Congress maybe gets together on a comprehensive immigration reform bill… When you throw in amnesty, and in some sense that’s already going on… we’re already flooded here at the southern border with minors… Illegal immigration is actually just a small part of the issue. This is stunning. I mean I knew, but putting it in numbers like this is sobering.
