Statistics on Immigrants and Immigration in the United States

The United States has been the top22_immigrationnation_wdestination for international migrants since at least 1960, with one-fifth of the world’s migrants living there as of 2017. Despite its long history of immigration, the United States has oscillated between perceiving immigration as a valuable resource and as a major challenge. The 2016 election and significant actions on immigration taken by the Trump administration have further raised the issue in political and public debates. 

For my info graphic I have decided to take some key statistics of immigration within the United States and organizing it into a pleasing easy to read manner which will also incorporate the issue(s) at hand.

The Statistics are going to be pertaining to:

  • Refugees and Asylum Seekers
  • Immigration over time: TOP STATES
  • Children with immigrant parents
