Editor's Note::Obama's Real Plan Is to Destroy the Republican Party /Immigrants in US at All-Time High

Newly released figures show that the U.S. immigrant population grew by 1.4 million from July 2010 to the middle of last year, reaching a record 41.3 million in July 2013.

About 3.3 million new immigrants settled in the United States in that period, but the number was offset by deaths and return immigration among the existing population.

The 41.3 million figure was double the number in 1990, nearly triple the number in 1980, and more than quadruple the figure in 1970, when it stood at 9.6 million, according to the data from the Census Bureau's latest American Community Survey.

Immigrants — all those in the country who were not U.S. citizens at birth, including illegal immigrants — comprised 13.1 percent of all U.S. residents last year, the highest percentage in 93 years, the Center for Immigration Studies noted.

As recently as 1980, the figure was just 6.2 percent.

The largest number of immigrants in the country in 2013 originally came from Mexico, 11.58 million, but that was down by 126,126 since 2010.

The region showing the greatest growth in U.S. immigration from 2010 to 2013 was South Asia, with 372,546 new immigrants, including 254,355 from India, bringing the total number of immigrants from that region to 2.71 million.

In raw numbers, the largest number of immigrants in the country last year came from East Asia, 7.88 million, including 2.38 million from China and more than a million each from Korea and Vietnam.

There were 3.9 million immigrants from the Caribbean last year, including 1.14 from Cuba and 991,046 from the Dominican Republic.

About 3.16 million immigrants from Central America were in the country, including 1.25 million from El Salvador and 902,293 from Guatemala.

The greatest share of the 2.76 million immigrants from South America were from Colombia, 677,231.

The U.S. was home to 1.81 million immigrants from the Middle East, with the largest number — 363,972 — from Iran.

There were also 4.88 million immigrants from Europe, 1.5 million from Sub-Saharan Africa, and 846,921 from Canada.

California was home to more immigrants last year than any other state, 10.31 million, followed by Texas with 4.36 million.

But the state with the largest percentage growth in its immigrant population from 2010 to 2013 was North Dakota, 27 percent.

Why is it that some you Bigots did not have a problem when all those immigrants were Germans,Irish, Italians,Greeks, Australians, English and from many other European countries. All of you came here in the same boat that some of these people have come. All of you received government medical care, food, clothing and places to leave, right? You did not have a problem them you miserable, selfish bastards!
