Many changes have been made in the new US immigration bill for not only Muslims but for all. The President of the United States Mr. Barack Hussein Obama in the new bill has invited over 80,000 Muslim immigrants next year in the States. It is said, this is being done by executive orders. Furthermore, he had promised that He will be bringing 100,000 additional Muslims each year in the following 5 years of his tenure. These immigrants will be called from the Islamic countries to resettle in the US in the coming year.
Muslims, however, had been protesting to make the senators agree on the immigration reforms to provide a path to many of undocumented residents of the country. The senators then revealed that measures will be taken to improve border security and fight for the visa overstays in order to differentiate all the illegal immigrants and take back their citizenship. They also said that a legal immigration system would be introduced for enchanting the employment opportunities. The President also supported the reforms saying that a comprehensive immigration reform will be developed and implemented.
When it comes to the US census, the country does not collect information about religions, but it estimates the number of Muslims that are living in the state. The percentage of Muslims living in the United States is about 2 per cent of the whole population. There is one more survey that shows that America has got the lowest Muslim population all over the world. After Americans, the continental Europe has the second lower Muslim population.
In this 2 percent, more than 60 percent of the Muslims are immigrants, and of those more than 70 percent are actually the citizens of the country. However, in the coming years, the ratio of Muslim immigrants in the United States will get doubled, and it certainly has as Obama has invited the Muslim immigrations.
Obama is even committed to fixing the broken system of immigration by enabling the illegal immigrants to get permanent residency only if they have some relatives who are US citizens. If they don’t have any such relatives, then they will simply have to leave the country. It is a nice effort to clean the country from major illegals.
Many of the Americans are against the announcement of the President to invite 800,000 Muslim immigrants to the United States. Though there is complete religious freedom in the country, but still the Muslim immigrants have to face problems as some of the US citizens are not willing to accept the Muslims.
It is true that immigration is much more than a business relationship of America with a few of the selected foreign states. Not many know that it is the process by which the United States renews itself. Therefore, immigrants are important for the economic welfare of the country whether the citizens like it or not. It is said that it will be less destructive to bring families instead of individuals.
