Immigration into America has hit the new low for this decade according to a recent analysis by William Frey of the Brookings Institution. The 2010s have been an erratic decade, polarized between the lows of 2010 and 2019 and the highs of 2014 and 2018.
The new data shows something else though, which has startled some immigration experts; while immigration is dramatically down overall, state-by-state immigration has seen increases in areas that went for Trump in the 2016 presidential race, with the heavy decreases coming from pro-Hillary areas.
The population of foreign-born residents is also nearing an all-time high at 13.7 percent of all the people in the United States. The record is held by the year 1910, which maxed out at 14.7 percent.
