Immigrants make up 13.5 percent of the population of the United States. This is the highest percentage in over 100 years. The number of immigrants in the U.S. rose to over 13.5 million in 1910, from 2.5 million in 1850.
Cities that received these newcomers are still benefiting economically from it, according to the New York-based Quartz news agency. Those immigrants are very much alike to the immigrants coming to the United States today. Most of them did not speak English, they were escaping politically or economically difficult situations, and they were of different religious backgrounds than most Americans. Though a small amount of them were highly educated, most were unskilled laborers. If you and your family want to pursue the American Dream, as did many of the past immigrants, USAFIS can assist you.
