NPR’s Planet Money have a couple of new charts showcasing the change in the immigration as a share of the U.S. population over the past century. Given the rhetoric on immigration it’s interesting to note how this percentage has barely changed over the past 100 years.
The also note:
A century ago, U.S. immigrants were overwhelmingly European. Today, Latin America and Asia are the big drivers of U.S. immigration, and Europe accounts for just a small fraction of the whole.
