In a new immigration study conducted by the Pew Research Center on Monday, Sept. 28, Asians will become the largest group of immigrants to head to the United States, surging past Hispanics, due to a major shift in immigration patterns within the next 50 years.
The study focuses on events happening by 2065, but notes that major changes will come around the year 2055.
Currently, immigrants comprise 14% of the total U.S. population, increasing from 5% in 1965.
By 2055, Asians are expected to become the largest immigrant group at 36%, while Hispanics are at 34%. White immigrants, who were listed at 80% back in 1965, will be listed at between 18% and 20% while black immigrants will be within the 8% to 9% range.
