61 Million Immigrants and Their Young Children Now Live in the United States. Center for Immigration Studies. Steven A. Camarota. March 2016.

While the national debate has focused on illegal immigration, the enormous impact of immigration is largely the result of those brought in legally. With some 45 million legal immigrants and their young children already here, should we continue to admit a million new legal permanent immigrants every year? [Note: contains copyrighted material].
