    U.S. Population Projections: 2005-2050

    If current trends continue, the population of the United States will rise to 438 million in 2050, from 296 million in 2005, and 82% of the increase will be due to immigrants arriving from 2005 to 2050 and their U.S.-born descendants, according to new projections developed by the Pew Research Center.

    But at least a 50% increase.

    We have "taken in" 10% to 20% of Mexico

    If one uses the most conservative estimates of 12 million illegal immigrants in the U.S., and uses the Pew estimates that 56% or 57% percent of those illegal immigrants are from Mexico, that would mean that at least 6.72 million illegal immigrants are from Mexico. This is against Mexicos's July 2008 population estimate of 109,955,400.

    This is not counting legal immigrants of which Mexico has made up the majority for years now.
