Blog 3: Increase in Immigration and Foreign-Born Population in the U.S.
— Pew Research Center (@pewresearch) September 28, 2015
- The foreign-born population in the United States as increased a great deal over the years, going from 5.4% in 1960 to 13.1% in 2013. The demographic of the foreign born population has also changed from being mostly Canadian or European in the 1960s to being mostly Mexican or Asian in 2013. I chose this article because I think it is interesting to see how much immigration and different cultures influence America and its values.
- The information comes from Pew Research Center. They collected data from the U.S. Census Bureau in 2010, American Community Survey in 2013, and the 1960-2000 decennial censuses.
- Are more countries noticing an increase in immigration in their countries, or is it just the United States? How has the increase of immigration changed the immigration laws in America over the years?
