The torrid pace of Muslim migration into the United States should be sending off alarm bells in the nation’s Jewish community, but so far it has barely registered as the sound of a pin dropping. The U.S. issued approximately 680,000 green cards to migrants from 49 Muslim-majority nations, as identified by Pew Research Center, in the five-year period from fiscal years 2009-2013, a figure that should be a red flag to American Jews. There are only 5.5 million Jews living in America.
The Muslim demographic is estimated at about 3 million but is growing much faster due to immigration and the high fertility rates of Muslim women. By comparison over the same five-year period under President Obama, the U.S. issued only about 270,000 green cards to migrants from the European Union. A green card is highly coveted because it allows the holder to access welfare benefits, lifetime residency, work authorization and a fast track to U.S. citizenship. FULL REPORT
