According to a new study, the amount of immigrants in the United States has reached an all-time high! Especially since every month, more and more immigrants arrive in States mostly from Asian countries. This study also shows that if this trend continues, the Asian immigrants will make up a majority of immigrants in the US.
Some of the study’s data also showed that despite there was a record at 43.2 million immigrants living in the United States only in 2015, the concentration of immigrants in 1890, when 9.2 million immigrants comprised 14.8 percent of the total population, was higher!
On the other hand, the immigrant population has been drastically growing especially since 1970. This was the year when this group made up only 4.7 percent of the total population.
Another interesting finding this study has made, is the fact it has shown that the majority of the immigrants in the US are legal. Only around 24 percent of the total population is considered “not legal.”
Analyzing immigrants by origin, the majority of them are from Mexico. They make up 27 percent of the total immigrant population. This is the largest population from any single country being in the US today! In second place come immigrants from China and India. They each make up 6 percent of the immigrant population.
According to this study, Asians are predicted to make up the largest immigrant population in the United States by the end of 2055.
