Top 10 U.S. Immigration Stories of 2010

Maps-FlagsThank goodness the ImmigrationProf Blog has written the Top 10 U.S. Immigration Stories of 2010 so I don’t have to. Of particular note is #7: China became the number one immigrant sending country; and more Mexicans are now leaving than coming to the United States. This story did not make as big of a national splash as it should have. A Pew Research Center study found that more Mexicans left than came to the United States from 2009-14. And China became the top country sending legal immigrants to the United States. The changing immigration demographics will no doubt influence future immigration concerns and law and policy responses.
