Washington D.C. - Today, the Immigration Policy Center releases a snapshot of the Pew Hispanic Center’s extensive review of Census data. This data demonstrates that immigrants integrate into U.S. society over time and contribute to the U.S. economy. According to Pew’s analysis, most immigrants have been here for more than a decade and over time are more likely to become homeowners and learn English. Moreover, growing numbers of immigrants are becoming U.S. citizens and voters. The Pew data also shows the degree to which immigrants fuel labor-force growth and fill valuable roles in the economy as workers in both high-skilled and less-skilled occupations. In short, the data shows immigrants continue to be integral to the nation’s social and economic fabric.
