For every new American added to the population, immigration will add a staggering seven more, a Pew Research Center study reveals.

The report, produced by the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, also says by 2065, about one-in-three Americans would be an immigrant or have immigrant parents, compared to one-in-four today.

"These projections show that new immigrants and their descendants will drive most U.S. population growth in the coming 50 years, as they have for the past half-century," Pew said on its website.

"Among the projected 441 million Americans in 2065, 78 million will be immigrants and 81 million will be people born in the U.S. to immigrant parents.

"The projected changes in population makeup could have implications in a variety of realms, changing the face of the electorate, raising the education levels among the foreign-born population and altering the nation's birth patterns."

Sen. Jeff Sessions, an Alabama Republican and chairman of the subcommittee, said:
"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. 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.

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

"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."
