Census Bureau data analyzed by researchers finds that there are now more than 1.2 million U.S. residents who speak Arabic at home. In the year 2000, there were only about 614,000 Arabic speakers in the country, representing a near 50 percent increase in the total in less than two decades.

研究人员根据人口普查数据分析发现,目前有超过120万美国居民在家里说阿拉伯语,而2000年美国只有大约614,000名讲阿拉伯语的人,这个数字在不到20年的时间里增加了近50%。

Legal immigration to the U.S. from Islamic nations, such as Afghanistan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Somalia has skyrocketed since 2010. For example, immigration from Afghanistan to the U.S. has increased 84 percent in the last seven years.

自2010年以来,从阿富汗、叙利亚、沙特阿拉伯、伊拉克和索马里等伊斯兰国家来美的合法移民人数激增。例如过去7年中,美国的阿富汗移民增加了84%。

As media reported, nearly half of residents in America’s top five largest cities speak a foreign language at home. In Los Angeles, California, nearly 60 percent of residents speak a foreign language at home.

媒体报道说,美国前五大城市中有近一半的居民在家里说英语之外的语言。在加利福尼亚州的洛杉矶,有近60%的居民在家里说外语。

In 2000, there were about 28.1 million U.S. residents who spoke Spanish at home. Today, there are more than 41 million U.S. residents who speak Spanish at home, an increase of more than 40 percent.

2000年,美国大约有2810万居民在家讲西班牙语。今天这个人数超过4100万人,增幅超过40%。

There are now more than 66.5 million residents in the U.S. that speak a language other than English at home. This number is expected to continue to increase should there be no reforms made to reduce the flow of mass legal immigration to the country.

美国现有超过6650万居民在家里说英语以外的语言。如果不做出减少大量合法移民涌入美国的移民改革,预计这一数字将继续增加。

Every year, the U.S. admits more than 1.5 million legal immigrants. In 2017, the foreign-born population boomed to a 108-year record high, making up nearly 14 percent of the total U.S. population. By 2023, researchers estimate that the legal and illegal immigrant population of the U.S. will make up nearly 15 percent of the entire U.S. population.

美国每年接纳超过150万名合法移民。2017年,美国的在外国出生人口达到108年来的最高纪录,占美国总人口的近14%。研究人员估计,到2023年,研究人员估计美国合法和非法移民人口将占美国总人口的近15%。
