Foreign-born population of US tops 49 million for first time ever:

Nearly 50 million people living in the US were born in another country according to a shocking new report.

A new study by the Center for Immigration Studies found 49.5 million people — around 15% of the 330 million US population — were originally born in another country.

The report also states this percentage, the highest ever recorded since the nation’s founding, has increased during Biden’s presidency, which it attributes to migrants flooding into the country during the current border crisis.

The Census Bureau, where data for the study was collected from, had originally estimated the foreign-born population wouldn’t hit 15% until 2033.

49 million U.S. tops? Bend me over!

Oh no! A nation of immigrants has a lot of immigrants! It's shocking!

The New York Post is trash and people should be ashamed of posting articles from it.

People who think immigrants cost money don't know immigrants.

With OPEN BORDERS for 40 years it’s not surprising.

Probably the best news imaginable if you are interested in US economic supremacy. The US will be the only developed nation without a declining workforce.

You'd think it would be the Christian Republicans who were saying, "we have to let in as many immigrants as possible, Christ commanded us the help those less well of than us," and you'd it would be the atheist Democrats who were saying, "keep out the immigrants, I don't want to share my stuff!"

Funny how it's the reverse.

In other words, it will be behind technologically?

R7 ??? Logic not your strong suit?

R8 No, logic is not YOUR strong suit.

A declining workforce will be the natural result of tomorrow's technology. Pursuing never ending population growth is absurd, especially if we care about climate change and the depletion of resources.

YOUR logic is right out of the 1950s. It's a new world. Wake up.

The World Economic Forum:

"By 2025, automation and a new division of labour between humans and machines will disrupt 85 million jobs globally in medium and large businesses across 15 industries and 26 economies. Roles in areas such as data entry, accounting and administrative support are decreasing in demand as automation and digitization in the workplace increases. More than 80% of business executives are accelerating plans to digitize work processes and deploy new technologies; and 50% of employers are expecting to accelerate the automation of some roles in their companies. In contrast to previous years, job creation is now slowing while job destruction is accelerating."

And we're willing to top even more Americans!

It’s wrong, shockingly wrong!

R9. Yeah. Social security, productivity, and the health care system will all be fine an dandy with a rapidly aging population. I hope you enjoy your retirement with an automated doctor and social security funded by machines. Good luck with that. At least you will have your vague unrealized fantasy future to comfort you in your misery.

And half the hotels and restaurant chains in the US are so short of staff they are begging for more immigrants.

think about it.... What's wrong with this picture?

So WHY are the social welfare programs encouraging healthy, able-bodied lazy motherf*ckers to sit on the couch all day and get stoned?

Stop posting shit from the New York Post.

R13, that only happens in your imagination. The vast majority of able bodied people are not on welfare. They just don't want to work for slave wages at restaurants

So, let's import suckers who will!

Picture it, America 1753 Benjamin Franklin was very worried that there were too many German immigrants coming to America.

"Franklin's objection toward the growing German presence was based on his fear that they would overwhelm America and change its most basic virtues, possibly bringing an end to the fledgling republic. "Few of their children in the country learn English... The signs in our streets have inscriptions in both languages ...Unless the stream of their importation could be turned they will soon so outnumber us that all the advantages we have will not be able to preserve our language, and even our government will become precarious," Franklin wrote in 1753."

Then it was Italians, then the Irish, then the Central Europeans that worried the people already here.

We just never learn from the past.

R15, if ANY able bodied people are ON welfare, that's the issue, idiot.

by Anonymousreply 18November 30, 2023 11:00 PM

R18! Yeah. Because no program should exist if it has even one cheat.

Why is the number “shocking”?
