More than 20M

Chain Migration refers to the endless and often-snowballing chains of foreign nationals who are allowed to immigrate because the law allows citizens and lawful permanent residents to bring in their extended, non-nuclear family members.

Chain Migration is the primary mechanism that has caused legal immigration in this country to quadruple from about 250,000 per year in the 1950s and 1960s to more than one million a year since 1990. These twenty million are likely to have relatives back home who are also eligible to immigrate to keep families together. Nations with higher birthrates like Somalia tend to send more emigrants because of legal chain migration provisions.

It's not only the Constitution that will take a hit. What about all the green concerns about urban sprawl, extensive payment, crowded parks, drawn down water supplies, etc.? Adding 20-40M people means more sprawl and the rest. Excessive immigration is the number one cause of sprawl but try to bring that into a discussion and see what happens.
