Understanding U.S. Immigration Levels - By The Numbers
Most Americans have no idea of the actual number of immigrants entering the country or the significance of the current immigration rate. This Blogburst from Euphoric Reality will clear that up.
I strongly encourage everyone to take 17 minutes out of your day and watch the video, and tell others about it. (Just watch the first few minutes, you will see why I say this). It is stunning.
As Heidi notes, when you add in illegal immigrants to the figures denoted in the presentation, the only possible conclusion a reasonable person could draw is that the U.S. will be gone in two generations if something is not done now to close the gates and reverse the influx.

This is a MUST SEE video for anyone interested in the immigration debate, whether you are a citizen, a legal immigrant, an illegal alien or a Congressman. This clip is from the longer video, Immigration by the Numbers, and features Roy Beck of NumbersUSA demonstrating the catastrophe of unrestricted immigration by Third World people into our nation. He uses standard statistics and simple gumballs to show this disaster in the making.
This video is very short - only 17 minutes total - don't miss it! Even if you think you know what our future looks like, this video will shock you!
H/T for the video: Third World County
Here are some additional resources concerning the population disaster that is pending for our nation.
*These numbers are NOT fanciful or manipulated to make a political point. They are cold, hard facts calculated by the most conservative estimator of all - the U.S. Census Bureau.
Despite the sheer impossibility of the numbers in the video and the source link above, you should know that they DO NOT include the number of illegal aliens and their offspring. Why?
The bar graph counts only the annual number of legal immigrants.
If illegal aliens could be accurately counted and included, it is likely that the 1966-89 period would be revealed as being even more disparate from earlier eras. Illegal immigration is believed to be far higher during recent decades than in the past.
The Census Bureau estimates there are 8 million illegal immigrants currently in the U.S. [A very conservative estimate - the numbers are possibly 2 1/2 to more than 3 times greater than estimated by the Census Bureau. -ed.]
On annual illegal immigration, the Center for Immigration Studies has extrapolated the latest Census data to show that 700,000 to 800,000 new illegal aliens are settling each year. Now, far, far more than that enter illegally each year, but there is a lot of back and forth. The 700,000 to 800,000 represents illegals who truly settle in for at least a couple of years, and usually much, much longer.
As bad as it looks on paper now, it is actually much worse in reality. We already know that the number of illegal aliens is more than quadruple the number of legal immigrants allowed into the country each year. The Border Patrol estimates that more than 4 million illegal aliens enter the country each year - and they apprehend about one in seven. That means, while they are catching 571,000 illegals each year, almost 3.5 million escape detection and melt into our communities.
What would the graph of the population explosion look like if the numbers of illegal aliens are included? The numbers are almost incomprehensible. We are looking at the utter devastation of our nation.
