By Paul Bedard | The United States will attract another 100 million more immigrants over the next 50 years, driven by a huge spurt of legally-admitted “spouses” who can then sponsor foreign family members to become Americans, according to a comprehensive new immigration report.
In the period 2010-2019, the U.S. is now projected to process the largest number of legal immigrants in U.S. history, over 10 million, said the report published by Negative Population Growth Inc. And three quarters of the U.S. population growth this century has come from immigration, said the report.
“Immigration, counting both new admissions and births to immigrant women, was responsible for three-fourths of the growth in our population this century. If current trends continue, immigration will add another 100 million people to the United States in the next 50 years,” said the report.
Author Jessica Vaughan, the director of Policy Studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, said that most of the legal immigration is driven by families due to rules that essentially provide an open door for parents and spouses of U.S. citizens.
Those “citizens” are often the children of illegal immigrants and U.S. policy is to keep families together, providing avenues for parents and spouses to enter the U.S. with special status.
For example, she reported that the admission of parents of U.S. citizens has been the “fastest growing category,” jumping from 67,000 in 2000 to 120,000 today. And because it “opens up an opportunity for sponsorship of more family members,” Vaughan said it can lead to more immigration.
Also, the number of spouses legally allowed into the United States has jumped from 196,000 in 2000 to 415,000 today. “This category also can trigger chain migration, as the new spouses can qualify for citizenship and the right to sponsor their family members more quickly than other immigrants,” added the report.
Her report details how a warm-hearted policy to keep spouses together is being worked by some immigrants:
In principle, spousal immigration is uncontroversial. Except in cases of marriage fraud or exploitation, most Americans agree that a citizen should be able to marry someone from another country and bring the person here to live. This is common among members of the military, diplomatic service, and staff of multinational corporations. In addition, many foreigners who come here as students or workers end up marrying a U.S. citizen. Recent immigrants may sponsor a spouse from their home country.
But most people would be surprised to learn that only a small share of the immigrant spouses of U.S. citizens come from abroad. About two-thirds have already been living in the United States, either as legal temporary visitors or as illegal aliens. Interestingly, most of the children of sponsored spouses are admitted from overseas, suggesting that the sponsored spouses originally came to the United States alone, and later applied for their children.
