Blog #3: The Changing Origins Of Newly Arrived Immigrants

  1. This article is about the change in immigration trends within the United States after 1965. Prior to 1965, the majority of immigrants were of European decent. This trend began to change in the late 1990s and early 2000s as the majority shifted to nearly 48% of the immigrants coming from Central America- mainly Mexico. Today, things have shifted yet again and the United States is seeing primarily Asian immigrants. This article also touches on the fact that todays immigrants are coming into the United States with higher education and occupy higher paying jobs than in years past. I chose this article because I found it really interesting to look at the current demographics of our country, and how they have evolved over the last 50 years.
  2. This article is from the Pew Research Center. The data came from Pew Research Center tabulations of 1970-2000 U.S. decennial census data and their 2013 American Community Survey.
  3. Will the rate of Asian immigrants continue to increase? Or will they eventually level off like they seemed to do for other regions? Is there a general reason that the Asian immigrants want to leave their native countries?
