Center for Immigration Studies: huge rise in Muslim immigration to America poses security threat

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 8, 2015

Here, at Newsmax, is a report of new findings by the Washington, DC based Center of Immigration Studies.  I might argue that the largest threat to America is not the threat of a terrorist attack, but a result of the less visible drip, drip, drip of demands for Shariah compliance which will only increase as the US Muslim population grows, ultimately changing America from within (without a bullet or bomb!).

Editor’s note:  I am away at meetings today.  Last night’s post brought out some commenters and since we screen our comments, don’t be surprised if yours isn’t posted right away.  I will get to it when I return.  Just remember, no foul language or personal threats!


A new study shows that the number of immigrants in the United States jumped 3 percent in three years — to a record 41.3 million in 2013 — and that the nearly 300,000 who came from Muslim countries pose a major national security threat, the report’s co-author told Newsmax on Thursday.

The UNHCR has selected 9,000-10,000 Syrians for resettlement to the US this year. UN camps are primarily populated by Muslims.

“All of that does raise national security concerns, and I don’t think there has been any consideration of that,” said Steven Camarota, research director for the Center for Immigration Studies.

The Washington-based nonprofit organization released the study on Thursday. It is based on an analysis of Census data from 2010 to last year. Camarota conducted the study and co-authored it with CIS demographer Karen Zeigler.

“The primary threat from a group like ISIS to the homeland is through our immigration system,” Camarota said, referring to the Islamic State terrorist group that has beheaded three Westerners in recent weeks.


According to the study, the Middle Eastern population grew by 207,758 in the period, or 13 percent, to more than 1.8 million last year. That compared with 1.6 million in 2010 and 1.1 million in 2000.

Leading the growth from that region was Saudi Arabia, with 43,878 immigrants — nearly double the number who were in the U.S. in 2010. The analysis shows that 88,894 Saudis lived in this country last year.  [I would like to know under which program we are taking Saudis, clearly they are not “refugees.”]

Iraq was next, with about 41,094 immigrants, for a 26 percent increase to a total of 200,894.

But the total number of immigrants from predominantly Muslim countries totaled 295,743 in the period, according to the CIS study. That was up by 13.5 percent.

The total number of immigrants from primarily Muslim countries in the U.S. was more than 2.4 million last year, compared with 2.1 million in 2010 and 1.5 million in 2000.

Camarota attributed the rise in Mideast immigration to myriad U.S. policies, whether they granted asylum or refugee status to people from the region or involved the nation’s defense forces.

Read it all, no time to say more!

About the Syrians in the photo:  According to statistics I’ve received, 88% of the small number of Syrians who have (so far) arrived in the US as refugees (since 2010) are Muslims.

  3. […] Don’t hold your breath waiting for it. Remember the post-9/11 backlash the media kept sniveling about? Neither do I, because it never came. Instead we got a load of rhetoric from our supposedly right-wing president about how Islam is the “Religion of Peace.” Now Muslim immigration to the USA has been thrown into overdrive. […]
