The Migration Policy Institute has gathered facts about immigrants and contemporary immigration flows to the United States in one place in Frequently Requested Statistics on Immigrants and Immigration in the United States.
This Spotlight seeks to do so, providing some of the most frequently used current and historical facts and figures in easily accessible fashion. For example:
Which countries are the main sources for immigration to the United States? How many immigrants come each year? How many are already here? How many became US citizens last year? How many children live in immigrant families? How large are illegal immigration flows? Do immigrants have health insurance? How many immigrants live in poverty? How many are eligible to vote?
