Comment: Immigration Demographics
USA Today reports on a Census Bureau report that Asian immigration outpaced Hispanic immigration during the last 12 month.

For the second straight year, net immigration by Asians topped that of Hispanics, the agency reported. About 338,000 Asians immigrated to the USA in the 12 months ending July 1, 2013, up about 68% since the recession of 2007-09. About 244,000 Hispanics immigrated in that 12-month period, down about 60% from a peak that occurred in 2005-06... At the same time, the USA continued to age as more Baby Boomers edged into their retirement years and fewer babies and immigrants - typically young adults - took their place. The median age rose to 37.6, up 0.1 year from 2012 and 2.3 years since 2000.

The real story of immigration demographics is not the relative rates of immigration among the immigrant populations, but that inflow by working age immigrants is making possible retirements of Baby Boomers - a trend that is going to accelerate as more of the Baby Boomers retire over the coming decade.
