The U.S. adds one international migrant (net) every 36 seconds. Immigrants account for one in 8 U.S. residents, the highest level in more than 90 years. In 1970 it was one in 21; in 1980 it was one in 16; and in 1990 it was one in 13. In a decade, it will be one in 7, the highest it has been in our history. And by 2050, one in 5 residents of the U.S. will be foreign-born.

Currently, 1.6 million legal and illegal immigrants settle in the country each year; 350,000 immigrants leave each year, resulting in a net immigration of 1.25 million. Since 1970, the U.S. population has increased from 203 million to 315 million, i.e., over 100 million. In the next 40 years, the population will increase by an additional 125 million to 440 million. Three-quarters of the increase in our population since 1970 and the projected increase will be the result of immigration. The U.S., the world’s third most populous nation, has the highest annual rate of population growth of any developed country (except for Ireland and Australia, which have lower fertility rates) in the world, i.e., 0.9% (2012 estimate,) principally due to immigration.

The US will not be declining in population anytime soon.

Just from what you describe, the America is sinking in population of Americans. People who grew up with adoring the values of our Founding Fathers.

As someone who's lived in CA for the last 20 years, I can see how immigration to this degree has fundamentally altered our culture, and not for the better.

(As a son of an immigrant, I am not anti-immigrant. But they have to immerse themselves in our language and culture, not the other way around.)

Recently, immigration to the U.S. is declining and in the near future, anti-resistant bacteria is going to wipe out a significant portion of World’s population. (Just think anti-drug resistant TB)

Most of these immigrants are low-skilled with low-income potential. How are these types of workers going to pay for an ever-increasing silver-haired population? Answer — they cannot.

No, not a population “decline”.
Rather, a “population replacement”.

America is literally being changed into an entirely different nation via demographics...

And the “America” of the replacements being born will bear little resemblance to the America of the Euros who are slowly, but surely, disappearing...

The Jews of the northern kingdom didn’t have to worry either after the Assyrians conquered them because the Assyrians removed them and replaced them with their own people.
