Foreign-Born Population In The US Reaches Record High Amid Biden’s Border Policies

The foreign-born population in the United States has reached an unprecedented level of 51.6 million, representing 15.6% of the total population, according to a recent report from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS). This surge marks the largest two-year increase ever recorded, with 5.1 million more foreign-born individuals than in March 2022.

CIS estimates that since President Biden took office, the foreign-born population has grown by a staggering 6.6 million in just 39 months, averaging nearly 170,000 per month. The report suggests that approximately 58% of this increase can be attributed to illegal immigration under Biden’s policies.

Alarmingly, only 46% of those who arrived after March 2022 are currently employed, raising concerns about the potential impact on taxpayers. CIS projects that if current trends continue, the foreign-born population could reach 62.5 million by 2030 and an astonishing 82.2 million by 2040.

As the report comes out, President Biden is facing significant challenges in polls regarding his handling of his migrant crisis, trailing former President Trump by 35 points on this topic. The House GOP is set to investigate a substantial increase in illegal Chinese immigrants later this week, further highlighting the growing concerns surrounding the current administration’s border policies.

The CIS report shows the urgent need for a comprehensive review of the nation’s immigration policies and their disastrous long-term — and short-term — consequences. As the foreign-born population continues to grow at an unprecedented rate, policymakers must acknowledge the risks associated with this and begin not only defending the U.S. border but to also begin to work to correct the problems that have built up over an invasion that has gone on, seemingly unchecked, for decades.
