UN Data Shows 25.5% of Immigrants Living in USA from Mexico


Immigrants comprise over 15 percent of the population in America, rising drastically since 1990. Newcomers from Mexico remain as the top source of immigrants, but countries such as Cuba, Germany, and Canada are playing a role in the numbers as well. Over 25 percent of foreign-born United States residents came from Mexico in 2017, which was over five times as many as the next country in the line-up.

The topic of U.S. immigration is increasingly discussed, as the numbers have risen dramatically in the past 27 years. In 2017, of the close to 50 million U.S. residents who came from outside of the country’s borders, they comprised over 15 percent of the U.S. population, which was more than 325 million people. In 1990, there were fewer than 25 million immigrants, and they made up around nine percent of the 250 million U.S. residents.
