Arabic and Urdu are the fastest-growing languages in USA: 2014 Census Bureau data

NEW YORK, OCT 6, 2015 (MAMOSA Report) — Data from the United States Census Bureau show that languages spoken in Muslim countries are surging into U.S. households due to rapid growth in immigration from Muslim nations.

Between 2010 and 2014, there was a 29 percent increase in Arabic, a 23 percent increase in Urdu, 19 percent in Hindia, and a 9 percent jump in Persian, which is spoken in Iran.

The Census Bureau’s 2014 American Community Survey (ACS) reveals that Arabic and Urdu – Pakistan’s national language– are the fastest-growing foreign languages spoken at home, according to a new report by the Center for Immigration Studies.

After five decades of large-scale immigration, a record 63.2 million U.S. residents, or more than one-in-five, speak a language other than English when at home.

Previous reports have shown that the United States is now the second largest Spanish speaking country in the world. But the new census study shows that the fastest-growing foreign languages, in percentage terms, are languages spoken by immigrants from Muslim-majority countries.

The findings of this report reinforce other studies, which show that Muslim immigration is the fastest growing bloc of new immigrants. Every year the United States voluntarily imports more than a quarter of a million– or 280,000– Muslim migrants (this figure includes permanently resettled immigrants, guest workers, refugees and foreign students). All of these immigrants are invited into the U.S. on visas and therefore have the opportunity to collect welfare, resettle their relatives, and eventually apply for citizenship and voting rights.

Arabic is now the most common language spoken by refugees in the U.S, the report said.

The report also said that immigration between 1965 and 2015 added one new resident to the population for every one net birth to the preexisting population– a ratio of one-to-one. This may change. As Breitbart News exclusively reported based on analysis from the Senate Immigration Subcommittee, between 2015 and 2065, immigration will add seven new people for every one net U.S. birth produced by today’s population– a ratio of seven-to-one.
