Abstract

Since 1960, the liberalisation of immigration laws, and developments in other countries, have led to a large and growing stream of immigrants. Most come from Asia and the Western Hemisphere. Unlike those of the years before 1920, they resemble the US population more closely in terms of demographic and socioeconomic characteristics. Immigration is also more geographically dispersed, causing all parts of the country to experience an influx of foreigners. -J.Sheail
