  • May 29 - A Century of Immigration

    Comment: A Century of Immigration
    Pew Research Center reports on how America's source of immigrants has changed over a century.

    With more than 40 million immigrants, the United States is the top destination in the world for those moving from one country to another... But today's volume of immigrants, in some ways, is a return to America's past. A century ago, the U.S. experienced another large wave of immigrants. Although smaller at 18.2 million, they hailed largely from Europe... Despite Mexico's large numbers, immigrants come to the U.S. from all over the world. India is the top country of birth among immigrants in New Jersey, West Virginia and Pennsylvania, even though only about one-in-ten immigrants in each state are from India. Canada is the top country of birth for immigrants in Maine (27%), New Hampshire (14%), Vermont (23%), North Dakota (19$) and Montana (25%). Filipinos account for a large share of immigrants in Hawaii (45%) and Alaska (30%).
    While the absolute numbers of immigrants in the first decade of the 21st century are higher than the first decade of the 20th century, the percentage of foreign born in US population in 2010 is 12.9% - lower than 14.9% in 1910. Immigration has always been an integral part of America's identity. Please let us know your thoughts by writing to us at editor@ilw.com.
