    Immigrant Stock's Share of U.S. Population Growth: 1970-2004-Introduction


    File Attached - click here for more info



    The United States is on the verge of surpassing 300 million in population, and all projections indicate that the country is headed toward a population of at least half a billion people by mid-century. These are not abstract numbers. They will have a profound effect on every aspect of life in America, and on the rest of the world.

    Issues of the environment and resource consumption are inextricably linked to the size of the U.S. population. The United States already consumes a far disproportionate share of many non-renewable resources, particularly energy resources. Conversely, this country is also responsible for far more than its share of the emission of greenhouse gases and the erosion of the ozone layer.

    At home, our natural habitats and open lands are being lost to urban sprawl at an alarming rate. Under the pressure of a rapidly growing population, agricultural lands " that provide not only for our own needs, but feed millions of people around the world " are another casualty of current demographic trends. Increased environmental degradation, over-consumption and congestion " the inevitable by products of rapid population " add up to a declining quality of life for Americans of today and for future generations.

    Ironically, the damage we are causing as a result of rapid population growth is self-inflicted. America's race to emulate countries like India and China is primarily the consequence of one policy: immigration. Over the past 35 years, an increasing share of U.S. population growth is attributable to an unprecedented influx of immigration. Over the coming 35 years, that policy " unless it is changed " plus the legacy of immigration since 1970, will account for nearly all the population increase that this country will experience.

    As this study will demonstrate, changes made to our policies in the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 have created a small, but heavily vested constituency that is driving the immigration level " and population " inexorably higher. The 1965 act concentrated the economic and political benefits of large-scale immigration in the hands of a relatively small array of interest groups, and set this country on the course of massive population increases at a time when most of the rest of the developed world was achieving population stability.

    But for our current immigration policies, America, too, would have achieved a stable population size, allowing this country to address many of the social, economic and environmental issues that confront us. We cannot undo the past 35 years, but as this study suggests, we can reach rational decisions about where this nation is headed in the next 35 years and beyond. It all hinges on our willingness to address our immigration policies, or whether we choose to allow those policies to dictate the future to us.
