Immigrant Demographics

Since ‘09, Asian immigrants have outnumbered Latin American. In ‘10 430,000 Asians came to the US (36% of all new immigrants), compared to 370,000 Hispanics (31%). Since ’00, 14% of Asian immigrants have been undocumented compared to 45% of Hispanics. Despite the recent surge, Asians are just 6% of the US population (18 million). Whether this trend continues will depend on the relative health of the emigrant economies — and ours.
