Senate lawmakers are warning the federal government's current immigration policy is causing an untenable boost in the U.S. population of seven times the normal rate.

According to a chart from the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest released this week, "for every one new American added to the population, immigration will add seven more."

Chairman Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., says that rate is simply too "extreme."

"We should not admit people in larger numbers than we can reasonably expect to vet, assimilate, and absorb into our schools, communities, and labor markets," the Alabama Republican says in a statement.

"It is not compassionate but uncaring to bring in so many people that there are not enough jobs for them or the people already here … It is time for moderation to prevail, and for us to focus on improving the jobs, wages, and security of the 300 million people already living inside our borders.”

The subcommittee chart is based on new Pew Research Center data showing without new immigration policy, 14 million residents are expected to be added to the current population by 2065.

It projects "that the federal government, exclusively through immigration policy, will add 103 million future residents to the U.S. population (new immigrants and their descendants)," according to the subcommittee background information.

Under current immigration policy, by 2065 there'll be more than one in three U.S. residents who are foreign-born or have foreign-born parents, according to the data.

"Over the last four decades, immigration levels have quadrupled," Sessions notes.

"The Census Bureau projects that we will add another 14 million immigrants over the next decade. It is not mainstream, but extreme, to continue surging immigration beyond all historical precedent."
