Two Texas border metros are on track to join the one-million-inhabitants club sometime in the next 30 years.

According to a report by JHS Global Insight, McAllen-Edinburg-Mission and El Paso will be among 70 U.S. metros with populations of at least one million by 2042.

Those 70 metros will be home to 213 million or more than half the Census Bureau's estimated U.S. population of 392 million by then.

The population of McAllen-Edinburg-Mission is expected to increase from 819,600 today to more than 1.6 million three decades from now. That's a 96.3 percent change.

El Paso is predicted to grow by 40.8 percent from 839,500 to nearly 1.2 million.

The JHS report was prepared for the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
