Pew Research reports that “a majority of U.S. Muslims (63%) are immigrants,” and that “When it comes to political and social views, Muslims are far more likely to identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party (70%) than the Republican Party (11%) and to say they prefer a bigger government providing more services (68%) over a smaller government providing fewer services (21%).”
Christian Today cites the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) which “found that over 2.6 million immigrants from nations whose populations are dominated by individuals who follow the Islamic faith moved to America in 2014. This number indicates a significant increase from the 2.2 million immigrants from predominantly Muslim countries in 2010.”

Ilana Mercer: David B Taggart: Really? Not this family, my own. Don’t know one highly educated South African family on food stamps … very few of us educated whities are allowed passage into the US, but when we are, value is added to the economy. In the case of my spouse, more tens of millions (probably hundreds, as I am talking a globally shipped, high-profile product) than I can count in terms, for example, of asset acquisition for American interests.
