WASHINGTON, DC (August 8, 2012) – A new report from the Center for Immigration Studies provides a detailed picture of immigrants in the United States. Using the latest Census Bureau data from 2010 and 2011, the study reveals recent trends on a state by state basis. View individual state press releases above.

“There is considerable concern in this country about issues like poverty and the large uninsured population. But what has generally not been acknowledged is the impact of immigration on these problems,” notes Steven Camarota, the Center’s Director of Research. “Absent a change in policy, 11 to 15 million new immigrants are likely to settle in this country in the next decade and may further exacerbate present problems.”
