A study by the Pew Research Center found that in seven of the most populous states, including New York, Texas, and California, immigrants were anywhere from 1.5 to 4 times more likely to lean Democrat than Republican.
And the foreign-born population of the United States is surging under President Biden. Go figure.
According to the Washington Free Beacon:
The foreign-born population of the United States has reached its highest level in more than a century under President Joe Biden, a surge driven by the record number of illegal immigrants crossing the southern border.
The country’s foreign-born population reached 47 million by the end of April, compared to 44.7 million when Biden was elected in November 2020, according to data compiled in a new paper from the Center for Immigration Studies, meaning the immigrant population has grown at a rate of 132,000 per month. Two-thirds of that growth, the paper’s authors estimate, can be attributed to illegal immigration.
The paper sheds light on the rapid demographic changes taking place under the Biden administration that are largely a consequence of a border crisis with little end in sight. The rate of growth of the foreign-born population on Biden’s watch is shattering levels during previous administrations . . .
Over the last 22 years, the foreign-born population has jumped by 51 percent and now makes up a total of 14.3 percent of the U.S. population. In 1970, the foreign-born population made up just 4.7 percent of the country, a third of what it is today.
