...When we hear the GOP's nominee for president -- a descendant of immigrants himself-- rant about U.S immigrants and unauthorized immigrants, about building an infeasible, very expensive wall, etc.; please take a minute to reflect upon the following:
Per 2014 statistics, immigrants comprise slightly over 13% of the U.S population. About 42.4 million people (at the time). The U.S. is a country so large and populous that 42 million people represents only about 13% of the total population. (2014)
Unauthorized ("illegal") immigrants (- a group/issue that must be managed, few doubt -) have reportedly stabilized at around 11 to 11.5 million individuals, according to the following three sources. (Via a quick search I have not found more recent statistics from what I consider to be reliable sources.)
11.5 (million, I used the 2011 slightly-higher reported number) divided by approx. 314 (million, roughly the U.S population in 2012) equals about 3.7% of the U.S. total population at that time.
Hardly an "overwhelming" number, esp. in terms of percentage.Insert: The Pew Research link below reports the 2014 number of illegal immigrants in the U.S. at about 11.3 million...I.e., the total did not increase; may have actually slightly decreased..(11.3 (million) divided by (approx.) 318 (million) = 3.6%
