62. Yes, I do.

What are the historical numbers and shares of immigrants in the United States?
Data on the nativity of the US population were first collected in the 1850 decennial census. That year, there were 2.2 million foreign born in the United States, almost 10 percent of the total population.

Between 1860 and 1920, immigrants as a percentage of the total population fluctuated between 13 and 15 percent, peaking at nearly 15 percent in 1890 mainly due to European immigration. By 1930, immigrants' share of the US population had dropped to less than 12 percent (14.2 million individuals).

The share of foreign born in the US population continued to decline between the 1930s and 1970s, reaching a record low of approximately 5 percent in 1970 (9.6 million individuals). However, since 1970, the percentage has increased rapidly, mainly due to large-scale immigration from Latin America and Asia.

The foreign born represented 6 percent (14.1 million individuals) of the total US population in 1980. By 1990, their share had risen to 8 percent (19.8 million individuals), and by the 2000 census they made up 11 percent (31.1 million individuals) of the total US population. As of 2010, immigrants comprised 13 percent (40 million) of the total US population.http://www.migrationinformation.org/usfocus/display.cfm?ID=886#1


Now, what do you have to back your BS?
