Uncontrolled Immigration Will Destroy A U.S. Wellfare State


7/7/09

The following data are quoted from Mark R. Levin’s Book, Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto (pps. 154, 155, 156). The data he presents were based upon figures taken from the U.S. Census Bureau the Center for Immigration Studies in March 2007.

  • The nations’s immigrant population (legal and illegal) reached a record of 37.9 million in 2007.
  • Immigrants account for 1 in 8 U.S. residents, the highest level in eighty years. In 1970 it was 1 in 21; in 1980 it was 1 in 16; and in 1990 it was 1 in 13.
  • Overall, nearly one in three immigrants is an illegal alien. Half of Mexican and Central American immigrants and one-third of South American immigrants are illegal.
  • Of adult immigrants, 31 percent have not completed high school, compared to 8 percent of natives. Since 2000, immigration increased the number of workers without a high school diploma by 14 percent, and all other workers by 3 percent.
  • The Proportion of immigrant-headed households using at least one major welfare program is 33 percent, compared to 19 percent for native households.
  • The poverty rate for immigrants and their U.S.-born children (under 18) is 17 percent, nearly 50 percent higher than the rate for natives and their children.
  • 34 percent of immigrants lack health insurance, compared to 13 percent of natives. Immigrants and their U.S.-born children account for 71 percent of the increase in the uninsured since 1989.
  • Immigration accounts for virtually all of the national increase in public school enrollment over the last two decades. In 2007, there were 10.8 million school-aged children from immigrant families in the United States.
  • The Pew Hispanic Center estimates that 9 percent of the population of Mexico was living in the United States in 2004. Fifty-seven percent of all illegal immigrants are from Mexico. Another 24 percent are from other Latin American countries. Fifty-five percent of all Mexican in the United States are here illegally. By 2050, Hispanics will be between 29 percent and 32 percent of the nation’s population.
