Asians to become largest US immigrants by 2055

By NewsGram staff writer

Washington: A study reported that Asians will exceed Hispanic immigrants and will become the largest immigrant group by 2055.

If the current demographic trends continued, Asian immigrants were projected to become the largest immigrant group by 2055 and make up 38 percent of the total foreign-born population by 2065, according to Pew Research Center’s latest analysis published on Monday, reported Xinhua.

While 47 percent of US immigrants are Hispanic as of 2015, the proportion is predicted to drop to 31 percent by 2065, said the Pew report, citing the gradual slowdown of the influx of immigrants from Latin America as the basis for the projection.

The Pew report said that by 2065, Hispanics will still remain a large share of the US population at 24 percent, up from 18 percent in 2015, while Asian immigrants will make up 14 percent of the overall US population, up from six percent now.

As the share of Asian and Hispanic immigrants grows in the coming decades, the proportion of non-Hispanic whites is projected to become less than 50 percent by 2055, which means that no racial or ethnic group will constitute a majority of the US population by then.
