The U.S. Census forecasts the population of the U.S. will grow by more than 100 million by the year 2060, and analysts say much of that growth will be from “family chain migration,” which is family members following after one member when he or she makes the move.

Ira Mehlman, the media director for Federations of Americans for Immigration Reform, told WND that the numbers are dire.

“There is no need for that magnitude of population growth in the United States today. … We are already dealing with [significant] issues on limited resources,” he said. “We are going through a post-industrial era here in the United States, the nature of what it takes to succeed … is vastly different than it was a century ago.”
