The United States has been the topdestination 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
- IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT
- DEMOGRAPHIC, EDUCATIONAL, AND LINGUISTICS CHARACTERISTICS
