A study by Pew Research Center found around 100,000 Muslims arrive in the US yearly. They represent 10 per cent of all immigrants coming to the US, compared with five per cent in 2002.Pew also found that Muslim immigrants prefer more government services and that 70 percent lean towards the Democrats, while just 11 percent identify with Republicans. The statistics were released as worldwide condemnation ofDonald Trump’s wishes to stop all Muslims at the US borders grew. Muslims currently make up less than 1 percent of the US adult population. Just less than two thirds (63 percent) are immigrants. By 2050, Pew says 2.1 percent of the population will say they are Muslim, surpassing those who identify as Jewish.
