On July 1, 1906 the U.S. population was listed at 85,450,000. http://www.census.gov/population/www/popclockus.html

It took America 52 years to grow from 100 million in 1915 to 200 million in 1967, but only 39 years to reach 300 million. There will be 400 million Americans in 2043, climbing to 420 million by midcentury. US Census Bureau estimates.
The U.S. population more than tripled during the 20th century - a growth rate of about 1.3 percent a year - from about 76 million in 1900 to 281 million in 2000. U.S. population growth is now the highest among developed countries. California and Texas currently the most populous states. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_the_United_States
The share of births to foreign-born mothers grew from 15% of U.S. births in 1990 to at least 60% through 2004. Births to foreign-born women in 2004 accounted for the majority of Hispanic (61%) and Asian (83%) births. According to Pew Research Center population projections, 82% of the nation's population growth through 2050 will be accounted for by immigrants who arrived in the U.S. after 2005 and [mostly through] their descendants, assuming current trends continue. Of the 142 million people added to the population from 2005 to 2050, according to the projections, 50 million will be the children or grandchildren of new immigrants.

IMMIGRATION (see also under Finances)
The nation’s population will rise to 438 million in 2050, from 296 million in 2005, and fully 82% of the growth during this period will be due to immigrants arriving from 2005 to 2050 and their descendants. 67 million will be the immigrants themselves, 47 million will be their children and 3 million will be their grandchildren. (19%) will be foreign born in 2050, well above the 2005 level of 12%, and also surpassing the historic peaks for immigrants as a share of the U.S. population—14.8% in 1890 and 14.7% in 1910. http://pewresearch.org/pubs/729/united-states-population-projections
