According to the United States Census Bureau, the total U.S. population now stands at more than 333 million individuals, a record high driven by the federal government’s decades-long commitment to mass legal immigration policies.

For context, the 333 million residents is a .4% increase compared to the U.S. population in 2021. Additionally, population growth was seen in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Breitbart News reports:

Most of the population growth in 2022, more than 80 percent, is directly from the nation’s mass legal immigration policy that brings more than a million foreign nationals to the U.S. every year on green cards with the potential, later on, to sponsor an unlimited number of foreign relatives for green cards through a process known as chain migration.

According to Breitbart’s analysis, should the U.S. not have continued the endless flow of immigrants into the country, the U.S. population would have more or less stabilized, with about 245,000 new residents added.

“Research conducted last year shows that the nation’s foreign-born population is projected to hit a record nearly 70 million by 2060 if current legal immigration levels go unreduced. Today’s foreign-born population, at 48 million, is already the largest number of immigrants ever recorded in American history,” the article concludes.
