American Muslims: Minuscule Portion of the U.S. Population

Fact Check: Muslims in America

They are a minuscule portion of the U.S. population

It’s difficult to come by hard numbers because the U.S. Census doesn’t collect religious data. But the fear of Muslims taking over and imposing Sharia law is unfounded. By some estimates, Muslims make up less than 1% of the U.S. adult population. By 2050, their numbers will grow — to 2.1%. Of all the Muslims in America, 63% are exactly the kind Trump wants banned — immigrants.
