The Census Bureau has projected that this will be eclipsed by 2030 when the immigrant share climbs even further to 15.8 percent or just under 57 million people. The steady influx will continue right up to 2050 when the number of immigrants is expected to top 72 million while the population share will increase further to 18.2 percent.
