Future US Population Growth Fueled by Immigration

Published on January 27th, 2023

Earth recently reached the milestone of hitting eight billion people this past November. Of that eight billion, over 331 million are in the United States.

We’ve made the case many times on this blog that both Earth and our country are overpopulated. We have highlighted that we are already experiencing the negative consequences of unsustainable growth.

We have also drawn the link between mass immigration (both legal and illegal) as a driver of unsustainable population growth within the United States. Now in the midst of our record breaking border crisis, it seems as if the media is taking notice as well.

A recent report from Bloomberg stated population growth in the USA over the next two decades “will be driven entirely by immigration.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

“The projections, published on Tuesday, show a population of 373 million by 2053 — about 3 million more than the CBO was expecting a year ago. That’s partly due to a sharp increase in the forecast for immigration in 2023 and the following two years, after pandemic travel restrictions eased — adding some 1 million to the population over that period.”

The article also stated most of this growth will come from those aged between “25 and 54” and that we will increase by “1.1 million people, or 0.9%, each year.”

Of course, the article thinks this is a good thing because they believe that we need more population growth to fuel our economy. While economic concerns are certainly important, we here at CAPS know many other factors are at play.

No consideration is given to the strain on resources, the competition for jobs, housing, and the impact to the environment. We’ve already seen the negative consequences of overpopulation in California, and if we continue on this path then the rest of the country will unfortunately experience them as well.
