Immigration into the United States will continue at a historic pace for the next several decades, bringing the total number of foreign-born citizens to 78 million by 2060, according to the Census Bureau.
In a new series of new projections released this month, the Census said that the growth of immigrants in the United States will surge 81 percent from the current 43 million.
That will feed the massive growth of the nation overall. Census projected that the United States will have a population of 416 million by 2060, a massive 30 percent growth spurt.
According to the population control group Negative Population Growth, Census projects an increase of 97 million people, one third from other countries.
